Dizzee Rascal, Robbie Williams Collabo Confirmed
Pair have been spotted shooting Quadrophenia-themed video...
The unlikely duo have worked on track Goin' Crazy from Dizzee's forthcoming album The Fifth - even shooting a Quadrophenia-themed video together for the song in London yesterday (May 1).
In pictures published in The Sun, the pair were seen on 'blinged-up' mopeds and mobility scooters, while Elvis Presley, John Lennon and Grace Jones lookalikes were spotted on the set.
Speaking of the collaboration, Williams told the tabloid: "I was expecting Dizzee to come round to my place in LA for an hour. He got round at 6pm, we chatted for hours and he left at 6am. Then he said he wanted the song to sound like Queen. It was a great night.
He continued: "I have never been so urban. When I heard Dizzee wanted me, I was like, 'F*k* yes!' He only deals in bangers and life is getting shorter for me.
"The song instantly sounded like a smash. I love his vibe, his energy and he is a real talent. He seems to be the voice of this generation, so it was a no-brainer."
Dizzee added: "As soon as I heard Quadrophenia, I was signed up for the video idea. The mods and rockers idea is right up my street.
"Having Robbie involved has been good. When his name came up, I was excited about it. We went to his house to record it. It's not often on these things you sit in the same studio any more.
"He told me some amazing stories. We really vibed. I'd love to sit with him and Ian Brown and listen to their stories all day. They are two of the best people I've ever met."
Goin’ Crazy is out on June 17 and the album a week later, with the track getting its first play next Friday (May 10) on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show.
