Robbie Williams unveils his new album “XXV” – Billboard

0

Robbie Williams, one of the biggest British pop stars of this century, or any other, looks back on the successes that brought him here for his next album.

The pop veteran’s 13th studio album XXV is a collection covering his entire career of his great numbers, reworked with the Metropole Orchestra of the Netherlands.

As its title suggests, XXV is a nod to the quarter century since Stoke-On-Trent’s favorite boy released his first album, Life through a lens.

Although Williams has never reached great commercial heights in the United States, he can fill arenas and stadiums across Europe and Australia, and he is a phenomenon in his native country, where he bagged 13 No. 1 solo albums and seven best-selling singles.

All but one of his studio albums topped the official UK Albums Chart (2009 Reality Killed Video Star broke the streak, peaking at No. 2), and he won a record 18 Brit Awards as a solo artist and as part of Take That. This set includes the BRITs Icon Award, which he received in 2017.

“I’m so excited to announce my new album XXV which celebrates many of my favorite songs from the past 25 years,” he said in a statement. “Each track has a special place in my heart, so it was a real pleasure to record them again with the Metropole Orkest. I can’t wait for you all to hear it.

XXV due out September 9 via Columbia and follows Robbie’s first holiday collection, 2019 The Christmas present.
