Robbie Williams Album Details

Pop star returns

Chart busting pop star Robbie Williams has announced his return with new album ‘Reality Killed The Video Star’ due for release later this year.

The battle between Robbie Williams and Take That rages on. After leaving the group cheeky monkey Robbie was seen as a tearaway, a pop star who had lost his way. Nights out with Liam Gallagher didn’t help, and it seemed that his social life was taking priority over his career.

However after the boy band split Robbie Williams seemed to come into his own. The stunning success of singles such as ‘Angels’ propelled him to pop stardom, and his renunciation of drugs adhered him to grannies everywhere.

Arguably shifting the way pop is produced with ‘Swing When You’re Winning’ his revival of swing paved the way for the commercial success of artists such as Amy Winehouse. However since signing an enormous deal with EMI the singer’s career has stalled.

Subsequent albums such as ‘Intensive Care’ and ‘Rudebox’ have failed to set the fire alight commercially, while his old friends in Take That have come back to haunt him. The 90s boy band legends have reformed to enormous success, breaking box office records wherever they go.

With the pressure on, Robbie Williams has announced details of his new album. Titled ‘Reality Killed The Video Star’ the singer will release the long player on November 9th.

The album will be preceded by the single ‘Bodies’ – not a cover of the Sex Pistols’ foul mouthed classic – which is due to hit the shops on October 12th. The full video for the track has yet to be released, but fans can watch a snippet via the official Robbie Williams website.

Robbie Williams is due to return on November 9th with his latest album ‘Reality Killed The Video Star.
