A Man For All Seasons was written by Robbie, in collaboration with Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer.
The idea for Robbie to sing his first theme song to a movie came out of a casual meeting with Working Title Music Supervisor, Nick Angel and Robbie's co-manager, Tim Clark. Hans Zimmer was already on board to compose the song and Nick suggested that Robbie would be perfect to sing it and write the lyrics. Robbie loved the idea and got to work immediately.
The film tells the story of secret agent Johnny English. After a string of unfortunate events, one man remains in the British Secret Service to protect Britain, avenge the elimination of all of the Secret Service’s spies and uncover the fiend behind the fiendish plot to make off with the lasting symbols of the once supreme British empire, the Crown Jewels.
