Take The Crown: New Album Out 5th November

We can finally reveal that Robbie's new album, entitled Take The Crown, is released later this year on 5th November! Even better news is that you can pre-order it right now to make sure it's yours the moment the release date rolls around.

After the Take That reunion – a busman’s holiday, a break from my career which re-energised me in many, many ways – I wanted to come back with a massive solo album," said Robbie about his forthcoming release. "My main priority was to write what I consider, and hopefully what the world would consider, to be hits. I’m very excited”.

So are we!

Music industry magazine, Music Week, have already had a sneak listen and are singing Take The Crown's praises:

Take The Crown is the big, brash, confident Robbie Williams pop record that his fans have been longing for but maybe didn't dare expect. If it had a sub-title it would be ’In Case You'd Forgotten’. Not wishing to denigrate the art of the record executive, but Island may as well have chosen the lead single by chucking a dart at the inlay sleeve. They couldn't have missed. Because there are no misses. Just hits ­ - huge pop hits.”

Wow!

And for those of you who simply can't wait until 5th November for a taster of Take The Crown, you'll be pleased to know that the first single to be released from the album, Candy, will land on 29th October. A brilliantly addictive classic pop song written with Gary Barlow, this is what Robbie had to say about the track:

It’s a summer song about a girl who thinks she’s great. And she might be, but she’s a bit nefarious with her ways. Some songs take an age to write and some songs just fall out of your mouth completely formed, and you don’t have to think about it. I don’t know why that fell out of my mouth and out of my brain at that particular time – it just did.”

  • Já quero!!!!!!!!

  • loving all the artwork, especially the Roar cover! x

  • Such a shame that we don't even know what we're buying....................

  • I'm waiting on 5 November on the new album and because I'm not interested in any publicity armed movement around Robbie Williams, and it's because I really admire as a singer Robbie Williams, and I hate the media circus that is generated around, which show little to Robbie Williams singer, creator, writer, musician, artist, (the media or maybe for Robbie same?) "what would really be worrying", nobody seems interested in knowing or show Robbie singer,so many questions to ask singer Robbie Williams and many questions to ask the singer, without answers ,with more years of age, as seen himself, what kind of music making ,as he was changing his mind through the years with respect to music, to where you're going to do after achieving so much success. they want to advertise the intimacies of counting Robbie his private life, his health problems, need testosterone, problems of depression, his psychiatrist, sees ghosts in his house, sees UFOs abduct him, hears voices, their family intimacy, intimacy in marriage, I do not know much about how to promote a great artist but for me this type of advertising media circus, is momentary and fleeting and people are left wondering, if (RW) is so crazy and say strange things, can make really good music or time has finished ,I can not believe that Robbie Williams, its almost 40 years old, and a great career in music need to do this, does not favor his image great singer, maybe Robbie agree with them to be part of a media circus.
    I'm sorry if I can not express correctly what I think, but English is not my native language.
    Best regards.

  • Robbie Williams You said " if you do not like my music now, buy my clothes" I am a woman I do not like men's clothes, I will not buy your clothes, because I do not wear men's clothes.
    I mean that if I do not come to like his new album or new songs, and your clothes I do not like because it is of men, I do not know, you sell me something else, chocolates, candy, ice cream.
    is a joke, much success, ,you like jokes.

  • COVER OF GQ ....

    Congratulations on your award, and for looking so dapper on the cover of GQ. Best of luck with your family and all your upcoming projects.
    - - Paul

  • Congrats on the GQ Icon Award. Ayda looked beautiful and you so proud and happy- so pleased for you both. Also brill pic of you and Mo doing the MoBot together , he seems so humble and deserving of all the success coming his way. I got to see Usain Bolt in the Olympic stadium running in the 200M heats and the way he charmed the crowd reminded me of you - he's the RW of the sport world.

    So first airplay of Candy will be on the Chris Evan's Breakfast show on Monday- cannot wait, I remember the poker chats of you talking about your songs, writing more lyrics, then recording them and now its finally time for us to hear them. Here’s to the first step in your new world domination! P.S when is the “Pills for Tickets” tour happening……..might be easier to wangle a ticket or two for that :)

  • Robbie Williams congratulations FOR YOUR "ICON OF THE YEAR", is an award you've deserved for all your hard work for so many years in the music and your greatest hits, I expect to hear the new album when it comes out in November, I do not want hear anything before, I prefer this new album surprised me and I hope that I like as much as I liked your first solo albums after take that because I really miss that time and those songs you did in those early years.
    My wish for you and your wife and your daughter on the way Happiness and Love.

  • I've ordered my deluxe and roar version! Can't wait for the link for Australia so went to Amazon.
    The both of you looking great at the GQ Awards. Ayda looking so glowing, and it must be nearly time now, as I keep checking to see any news. Also Congratulations on your award Robbie too.
    Hey what's all this talk been running the mill about you buying an island? Is it another rumour?
    So when can we get a listen to Candy? When are you coming to Australia? Questions, questions I need to know??? xxxxxxxxxxx
