The album is Williams’ first release since 2013’s ‘Swings Both Ways’.
Robbie Williams has announced he’ll be releasing his 11th studio album Heavy Entertainment Show on November 4th. The album was revealed during the commercial break on Saturday night’s ‘X Factor’, with an ad showing Williams in a boxing ring fighting as both opponents.
Speaking during a special interview with Julie Adenuga to be aired on her Beats 1 radio show, Williams said: “I’ve been working on this album like I work on all the other albums.”
“It’s been a process of three years, some of these songs that have been on the album I’ve had three years ago, and I’ve had on my computer and I’ve been very excited about them and the new ones have taken their place and then the old ones have gone, and then the old ones come back up, the new ones…it’s just a process that’s been years in the making.”
The singer added that he was happy to be reunited with Guy Chambers, who he calls his ‘musical brother’. “We’re back in each others’ lives and I love him,” Williams said.
“He’s my musical brother, and you know, he’s my spiritual brother. We just try to get back into the studio and recreate some magic, and hopefully reconnect with what made it and us successful in the first place.”
Williams’ last release, 2013’s Swings Both Ways hit number one in the UK, giving him his 11th chart-topping album, a tally matched only by Elvis Presley. The album was also the 1000th album to reach the UK number one spot.
