Robbie Williams reveals all about new album Swings Both Ways

Robbie Williams reveals all about new album Swings Both Ways

We should have known that cheeky chappie Robbie Williams would pick a name for his new swing album that would get us all talking.

Robbie’s second swing album – the follow-up to 2001’s Swing When You’re Winning – is called Swings Both Ways, and is made up of 50 per cent original songs and 50 per cent covers.

And the Angels star has got a bunch of his musical pals on board to give him a hand on the upcoming album.

Swings Both Ways features Lily Allen, Kelly Clarkson, Michael Buble, Rufus Wainwright and Olly Murs who sings with Robbie on a version of Jungle Book classic I Wanna Be Like You.

Robbie, 39, said: “I always knew I’d do another swing album and I think now is the perfect time to do it.

“The album this time is a definite ode and a loving glance towards a period on the planet that I was never invited to beacuse I wasn’t there.”

Lily said: “I was a bit nervous when we recorded it, especially when I asked him what he wanted me to do and he said, ‘Just be you’. But I’m really happy with it and think we do justice to a classic song.”

Olly, who toured with Robbie this summer, added: “I loved working with Rob on this album.

“After touring Europe with him this year it seemed only right that we record something, and I Wanna Be Like You is such a classic singalong tune.

“It’s always brilliant when you get to work with your mates!"

The album is due for release on 18 November.
