Robbie Williams announces new album

Robbie Williams is coming back into our lives in a big way with his newly announced album Take The Crown (released November 5). The first single from the album, 'Candy', will be available September 11th.

"After the Take That reunion - a busman’s holiday, a break from my career which re-energised me in many, many ways - I wanted to come back with a massive solo album. My main priority was to write what I consider, and hopefully what the world would consider, to be hits. I’m very excited."

- Robbie Williams, August 2012.

Take The Crown is Williams' ninth studio album, and will be the latest work of an already legendary career.

To put it bluntly, Robbie has simply sold more records than any other British solo artist in history. Having sold a staggering 60 million albums over his solo career, Robbie has also won more Brit awards than any other artist in history (a grand total of 17).

Six of his albums appear in the all time top 100 biggest selling albums in the UK whilst Williams appears in the Guinness Book of World Records for selling 1.6 million concert tickets in a day in 2006.

"If (Take The Crown) had a sub-title it would be ’In Case You¹d Forgotten’."

- Dave Roberts, Music Week

In 2010 Robbie Williams won the Outstanding Contribution to British Music Award at the BRITS; later that year his reformation with Take That led to their album becoming the fastest selling album of the century.

Since then Robbie has been working on his brand new solo album, recorded in Los Angeles with producer Jacknife Lee. The orchestra on the album was recorded at the fabled Capitol Studios in LA.
