Robbie Williams - Robbie Williams enjoys competing with Gary Barlow

Robbie Williams is looking forward to competing with Gary Barlow as they both release their solo album next month.

The 39-year-old star has been working on tenth studio album, the jazz-inspired record 'Swings Both Ways' which is due for release on November 18, while the 'X Factor' judge will release 'Since I Saw You Last' a week later on November 25.

Robbie insists that his Take That band mate stands a good chance of selling more records than him since the 'Let Me Go' hitmaker has become a ''national treasure'', and if he succeeds it'll be his ''crowning glory.''

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''I don't know if he is, but I am. Will I beat him? Well, he's a national treasure now. If he does outsell me, or win - he's been to places I haven't before - it'll be the crowning glory for him.

''If not, I'll be really happy, too. But either way, God bless him.''

Robbie's 13-month-old daughter, Theodora Rose - who he had with actress wife Ayda Field - is his inspiration behind many of his songs and she brings out the best in him.

He added: ''She has given me perspective and anchored me to the planet. It wasn't a bad place, the planet, before, floating about, but everything has a meaning now. I'm definitely around and present because she deserves the best me.

''It's going to be so boring though; I've got so many songs to write about her.''
