Robbie Williams is back - and he's releasing his new album 'Heavy Entertainment Show' in November.
The sometime Take That man has not released an album of entirely new material since 2012's 'Take the Crown' - but his eleventh studio album, and the follow-up to 2013's 'Swings Both Ways', is out on November 4th.
He's enlisted some interesting names as writing collaborators on the album, including John Grant, Rufus Wainwright, his old mucker Guy Chambers, Ed Sheeran, Brandon Flowers from The Killers and pop songwriting guru Stuart Price.
He said of the album's title: "I was musing over the phrase ‘light entertainment’ - all the huge TV shows from when I was a kid, 30 million people watching them, this huge shared experience of these moments called light entertainment. Sometimes it can be leveled at people in a bad way, but for me that’s heavy entertainment. That’s what I’m hoping to do with this album – to have a shared experience with millions of people though the medium of light entertainment…but on steroids.”
