Robbie: “Rudebox is so me”
The rubbery-faced superstar says hes discovered his true calling on his new dance album
Details of Robbie Williams new album 'Rudebox' have been announced and its a 17-track electro-disco stomper on which the singer says hes finally found himself.
The Robster has ditched the guitars and enlisted the help of various dance maestros.
Madonna collaborator William Orbit has worked on 'Summertime' and the Human League cover 'Louise', while New York DJ/producer Mark Ronson has sprinkled his magic over four tracks.
Even girl of the moment Lily Allen is on there - she sings backing vocals on 'King Of The Bongo'.
It might seem like a startling new direction for Mr Williams but he reckons its natural progression.
People might say its dance or its electro but its just what I like. It started off as a busmans holiday this time around, but its become something on which Ive found myself. I was just doing my YTS up till now, he says.
I saw the whole Robbie thing coming to a close as it was, I couldnt make another album like the ones I'd made, and this has just opened up a thousand other doors.
Rudebox hits shops on October 23.
