English singer/songwriter Robbie Williams has announced his brand new studio album ‘Heavy Entertainment Show’ will be released November 4 on Columbia Records. The title track from the album is available now HERE. A 16-track deluxe version of the album will also be available and will feature five bonus tracks. See full track listing below.
The album is Robbie’s first to be released through Sony Music and follows a string of 11 UK chart-topping albums, a tally only matched by Elvis Presley. Robbie’s last solo No. 1 album “Swings Both Ways” was also the 1000th album to reach the top of the UK charts.
Speaking on the album, Robbie says: “I was musing over the phrase ‘light entertainment’ – all the huge TV shows from when I was a kid, 30 million people watching them, this huge shared experience of these moments called light entertainment. Sometimes it can be leveled at people in a bad way, but for me that’s heavy entertainment. That’s what I’m hoping to do with this album – to have a shared experience with millions of people though the medium of light entertainment…but on steroids.”
“Heavy Entertainment Show” is the 11th studio album from Robbie Williams, a man who has sold over 70 million albums in his solo career and won more BRIT Awards than any other artist in history. Robbie’s 2010 Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution To Music brought his tally of Brits to an astonishing 17. Six of Robbie’s albums appear in the all-time Top 100 biggest selling albums in the UK. He has had 11 UK Number 1 albums and 7 UK number 1 singles. “Swing When You’re Winning” was released in 2001 and spent six consecutive weeks at the top of the UK chart achieving 7x platinum sales status. It remains Robbie Williams’ bestselling album ever. Williams also holds the record for the most concert tickets sold in one day – 1.6 million in 2006. These accolades coupled with the honor of playing the largest open-air concert in UK history to 375,000 people show Robbie’s status as a live performer matches his massive achievements as a recording artist.
