Different: Robbie's Next Single Announced

31

Oct
2012

As if the release of Candy on Monday wasn't enough excitement for one week, we are now able to reveal that Robbie's next single will be Different, the fourth track from his forthcoming album, Take The Crown!

Set for release on 17th December, Different was produced by Jacknife Lee, who said of the track: "I think when Robbie gets a song right it's the vulnerability mixed with the bravado that makes it so compelling".

But what does Robbie think? "It's the great hope of the second single variety," he said. "A lot of effort went into this song, which is a very personal statement".

Have you heard Different on the radio yet? What do you think of the single cover?

  • linda música Diferente é uma música que me deixou arrepiada de emoção, eu já posso dizer amo essa música.

  • Different - amazing. I am speechless

  • I'll buy the album but already heard it and it's great. CANDY was a catchy, perfect single. There are 2 other great upbeat pop tracks SHIT ON THE RADIO (although it lacks a big chorus to be as good as Rock Dj) and ALL THAT I WANT (love the voice). DIFFERENT is the perfect 2nd single since it's an instant classic that people will soon sing along like they did with STRONG or ANGELS but INTO THE SILENCE, HUNTING FOR YOU and LOSERS are also really beautiful. NOT LIKE THE OTHERS and HEY WOW WOW YEAH though very different from each other reminded me of the early records while BE A BOY & GOSPEL sound like Robbie but with a U2 or Coldplay type of production which is not a bad thing at all, it suits his style and they are a great way to open the album. All in all, I still wish there would have been 2 more tracks (an old school mid tempo ballad a la SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL or YOU KNOW ME plus a good rock n roll tune like HOT FUDGE) but still, an other great Robbie record!

  • WOOOOHOOOO Another rippa! Beauty looks like you and your family will be visiting down under!!!!! This album is gunna go offffff! Can't wait for you to rock a stadium down here! love ya RW!!!!!

  • I LOVE IT! FROM THE VERY FIRST SECONDS! SO TO SAY INSTANTLY!!!! AND MORE AND MORE! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!!!

  • "Different" yet Equal..... Hey, Mr. Williams, I saw the message promoting equality for all people under the heading "Things I've been enjoying today." You've been pretty consistent with messages like that throughout your career. Very proud to be your friend.

  • Cross it out .. have you taken leave of your senses ... I'm campaigning for " Into The Silence " for single number 3 ! : )

  • Praying to all the Holy Saints & Angels that we are treated to a B-side this time ! x

  • I LOVE THIS SONG!! DELIGHTED THAT IT'S THE NEXT RELEASE AND IN MY OPINION ONE OF THE BEST WE'VE HEARD FOR A WHILE FROM ROB. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. JX

  • I mentioned this was my Fave on the iTunes Preview when it came out. :-) Loved it. Christmas number 1 much!? Cant wait to hear the Full Version tomorrow when i get my Hands on the Album... x x x 3 weeks today and we'll be seeing you x x x

  • Prefer this to Candy tbh...absolutely lush the acoustic version too. Good work dude. N x

    PS adored the sentiment of this poem when I heard it on POB awards...I vaguely recollect studying it for A Level English Lit... but was far too busy going out getting mortal,to be interested in poetry at that time! Thought I'd stick it on here for you....reminded me of when you were wanting inspirational quotes :) Think Kipling wrote this for you ; )

    IF.....

    IF you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
    Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
    And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
    If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;
    If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    ' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
    if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
    Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
    And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

  • I really relate to the line about God in this song... I pray every night, but the exact nature of the being to whom I am praying is a mystery to me, and sometimes that rattles me. I have trouble with religious dogma. That's a really PERSONAL thing I just shared with everyone here, but Rob's music inspires such deep emotions sometimes, because some of his lyrics come from a deep place. God bless you all. Any fan of RW's is a very special person, in my opinion.

  • The single cover ...... beautiful, contemplative, with the eyes shut it's introspective... reminds me of a classical Greek bust...The white bust and dark background create a stark contrast, but it's beautiful. Fits the song well... "Different" has a beautiful cover, like the song, and "Candy" has a fun and colorful cover, like the song.

  • Loved it on the iTunes preview and the acoustic version with Dermot was beautiful... Is a gorgeous track. Your voice has never sounded better. Cannot wait for the album now.... And some me time to listen to it.... I watched the Pride of Britain last night and saw you give lovely Alice Pyne the most gorgeous moment. A very special thing to do for a very special girl.... Not at all ashamed to say I was filling up watching it. So very brave and incredibly inspirational. As for you, it looks like you are really enjoying promo this time around... Can't wait to see you at the O2 on the 24th and I'm in huge trouble with Scrummy Daddy as I am abandoning him on our wedding anniversary to come and see you at Graham Norton.... he thinks I should be tipped out of the big red chair for my badness... :)
