ALBUMS



Life Thru a Lens

Release Date:*29 September 1997

The long awaited debut solo album, Life Thru A Lens, was released in September 1997. During a harrowing period for Robbie, recording began at London's Maison Rouge studios in March of that year, shortly after his introduction to Guy Chambers.

After his brief creative fling with writers Eric Bazilian and Desmond Child, Robbie and Guy were keen to create a rockier sound. "Robbie constantly writes lyrics and has some good ideas," said A&R Chris Briggs. "We tried various collaborators, and the one Robbie clicked with was Guy. The demos confirmed we had found a direction."

Released in September - not long after Robbie's stint in rehab, from which he emerged two stones lighter - the album launched with his first live solo gig at the Elysee Monmatre theatre in Paris...

Asked why the album had taken so long to release, Robbie told The Star: "I don't know, it's probably because I've been off me head."

At first the album was slow to take off, despite reasonably good reviews. As the album hit the nation's bargain bins, no one could have prepared Robbie for the success of Angels - now considered one of the most popular songs of all time!

Robbie recalled: "The album had sold about 33,000 copies - which is bug.ger all as far as I'm concerned. Then Angels comes out and suddenly the album goes from 33,000 to 300,000 sales. Then two weeks later it went double platinum. I was a very happy boy!"

The first band line-up included Guy Chambers, Fil Eisler, Chris Sharrock, Gary Nuttall and Martin Slattery.

Chart Highlights:
Highest UK chart position: No. 1

Life Thru a Lens first entered the chart at No.11 before climbing to No.1 in its 28th Week of release - fuelled by the overwhelming success of Angels, which almost single-handedly revived Robbie's career!

It remained in the Top 10 for a total of 40 weeks and provided three top five hit singles, reaching multi-platinum status in the UK alone.

The album failed to make any significant impact in European charts, but reached No.9 in the Argentinean chart.

Default I’ve Been expecting you Album



I’ve Been expecting you

Release Date:*20 October 1998

After the success of Angels, Robbie was embraced as a national icon. Continuing his firmly established and successful partnership with Guy Chambers, I've Been Expecting You was released in late '98.

The album was penned mainly in Jamaica, during a jovial ‘luxury writing holiday' (as Guy called it!). It was also during his relationship with All Saints' Nicole Appleton - the album displayed a mix of different influences, namely from those closest to him.

Writing for his fanzine, Robbie said: "Most of the songs I've written are really personal, especially These Dreams, which is like another Angels. It actually made me cry when I first wrote it."

The album cemented Robbie's status as pop royalty, winning respect from peers and critics alike. After a summer spent wowing the crowds at the festivals, people now recognised the sheer force of his talent. Along with the London Session Orchestra, The Pet Shop Boys' Neil Tennant and The Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon both featured on the album, providing backing vocals for No Regrets.

"I got a 'phone call saying 'do you want to come down?" said Neil Hannon. "And with him being a great cultural icon, I thought it would be churlish to refuse."
Other key tracks from the album included Millennium - which became Robbie's first long awaited no. 1 in September '98 - She's The One, and Strong.

The band included musical director Guy Chambers on keyboards and guitar, Gary Nuttall and Alex Dickson on guitars, Chris Sharrock on drums, Fil Eisler on bass and Claire Worrall also on keyboards and guitar.

Chart Highlights:
Highest UK chart position: No. 1

I've Been Expecting You shot straight to the UK's No.1 on its release. selling more than 2.5 million copies in the UK and Ireland alone, it also made its mark on the European and Latin American charts.

Default Sing when you're winning Album



Sing when you're winning

Release Date:*28 August 2000

Kicked off by the release of Rock DJ, Robbie's third album came exactly a year after his sell-out Slane Castle Show.

It'd been a manic year, to say the least! Rarely off the radio or out of the papers, he'd collected armfuls of awards and played huge sell-out gigs. Yet somewhere amid the mayhem, he'd somehow found the time to make another album!

By now a national institution, the new album was a turning point - Robbie had finally found his confidence, not only to be more brash, but also to be more vulnerable...

"Every track is a solid track on this album. I want people to think, ‘oh, he's getting there isn't he?' you know? I want them to have a good time, be sad, be in different moods," he said.

Inspiration was taken from a catalogue of influences - from the Who-inspired Kids with Kylie, to the first release, Rock DJ, inspired in part by UNICEF mentor, the late Ian Dury.

The Road To Mandalay became an early favourite of Robbie's, inspired by his time in France. "I just picked up French vibes and started singing a French sort of melody. And then it's turned out to be the most, for me, touching song that I've written."

Snapped by photographer Paul M Smith, the album's artwork - along with Robbie's complete football strip (including a signed jockstrap!) - was later sold at Robbie's Bid It Sum auction to raise money for his charity, Give It Sum.

The ‘Sing' band included the familiar faces of Guy Chambers, Neil Taylor, Fil Eisler and Chris Sharrock.

Chart Highlights:
Highest UK chart position: No.1 Selling more than 2 million copies in the UK alone, Sing When You're Winning spent a whopping 91 weeks in the UK chart. Hitting the charts throughout a number of European countries, Sing When You're Winning also made its mark on the Latin American charts, reaching No.6 in Argentina.


Track list

Let Love Be Your Energy
Better Man
Rock DJ

If It's Hurting You

Default Swing when you're winning Album



Swing when you're winning

Release Date: 19 November 2001

Over a two-week period and during a year of constant touring, Robbie made his fourth album, Swing When You're Winning - the big band album he had always dreamed of making!

Born of his life-long love for Sinatra - combined with the huge success of Have You Met Miss Jones - the album was recorded at the world-famous Capitol studios in LA...with Robbie savouring every minute of it!

"Frank was The Don," said Robbie. "Hopefully, by making this album, we're bringing his music to a whole new audience. And if not, we're just having a blast anyway."

Working with the veterans from Sinatra's original line-up was a major highlight for Robbie. The sessions were engineered by studio legend Al Schmitt who had previously worked with some of the biggest names in the business from Sam Cooke to Barbra Streisand as well as Sinatra himself...

Full of praise for Robbie, Schmitt said: "You can hear the sheer joy in his voice and he has a great understanding and respect for the originals. He's really done his homework."

Guy was also blown away by the experience. "In the four and a half years I've worked with Rob, I've never heard him sing so well or seen him enjoy himself so much in a recording studio."

Robbie also grabbed the chance to duet with some of his favourite people including silver screen goddess Nicole Kidman, best mate Jonathan Wilkes, Little Voice star Jane Horrocks and the ever-handsome, Rupert Everett.

Nicole was more than happy with the results. "I was very nervous," she admitted, "but Robbie made it so easy for me. He was extremely encouraging."

Accompanying an 18-piece band, the breathtaking string of musicians included trumpet virtuoso Chuck Findley, tenor sax supreme Pete Christlieb and Count Basie Orchestra drummer Harold Jones.

Chart Highlights:
Highest UK chart position: No.1 Swing When You're Winning swept the boards across Europe, hitting the top ten throughout the continent on its release. Spending a total of 58 weeks in the UK chart, the album sold almost 2 million copies in late 2001.

Default Escapology Album



Escapology

Release Date: 18 November 2002

Robbie's fifth studio album, Escapology, was released shortly after the announcement of his reported £80 million contract with EMI - the biggest music deal in British History. The album's famous artwork picture an upside down Robbie hanging precariously over a sun drenched LA.

After a year out from recording, the album heralded a new era for Robbie; he had taken a more active role in the making of Escapology, giving an indication of his growing confidence in the studio, and Nan's Song and Come Undone were the first songs to be written without the input of Guy Chambers.

"I've never enjoyed the process of recording," he said, "I've always found it very boring. But the Swing album changed all that because it was just amazing. And I thought it's just a shame that recording my own material can't be this much fun...then blow me, if this hasn't been as much fun as the Swing album. It's been amazing."

Produced by the dynamic forces of Guy Chambers and Steve Power, the album delivered something altogether different from previous offerings. Robbie wanted the sound to be raw, raunchy and honest, without over production.

Steve Power said: "He did dictate the whole tenor of the record really. He didn't want things to be made slick. You have to have some courage to do that and if anyone has to have the courage it's the artist. And we follow him."

The album was recorded mainly in Los Angeles, with many of the vocals sung naked...one song, which didn't make the album, was even sung in a Superman costume! The Escapology band featured Guy Chambers, Neil Taylor and Gary Nuttall on guitars, Phil Spalding on bass and Jeremy Stacey on drums.

In Robbie's words: "We had a good set of lads in and we rocked hard, man! I enjoyed it, it was a good vibe."

Chart Highlights:
Escapology stormed the charts at the end of 2002, hitting No.1 in the UK and throughout Europe, and reaching the Top Ten in the Latin American, Southeast Asian and Australasian charts. By Christmas 2002, Escapology had been the UK's No.1 for five weeks and has sold more than 1.2 million copies in Britain alone, becoming the UK's biggest selling album of the year.
