The follow up to Robbie's first offering, Old Before I Die, Lazy Days was a minor hit in the summer of '97. Amidst his battle with addiction, a detoxed Robbie appeared cleaner and fitter on Top Of The Pops after his stint in rehab. Robbie told his fanzine, Sole: "It's basically saying enjoy your youth and don't worry about making mistakes because we all make mistakes - it's part of growing up. That's something I've only just learnt for myself."
Struggling to make the Top 40 in any European charts, Lazy Days spent a week in the UK's Top Ten in July 1997.
