Robbie Williams pays tribute to Bowie on new album  

http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,4-2006320749,,00.html

Robbie: After you, Justin
ROBBIE WILLIAMS has bottled out of a chart showdown with man of the moment JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE.

The Prince Of Pop has delayed his new album release — called 1974 — so it won’t go head-to-head with Justin’s latest, FutureSex: LoveSounds.

Both CDs were due out on September 11 but now Robbie has held his back until the beginning of October.

It’s a surprise move by Robbie. I hear he has his best and most experimental album to date up his sleeve.

And the delay could now mean a chart battle with THE KILLERS.

A source said: “Taking on Timberlake would have been madness but The Killers will still provide some serious competition.”

I get the feeling Robbie’s on autopilot on his Close Encounters tour.

But his fans shouldn’t be too disheartened.

I’ve got my hands on details of 1974, named after the year Robbie was born, and it sounds like a return to form.

The first single, Rudebox, comes out in September, followed by Lovelight — which I hear is Robbie at his best — in December.

He has also recorded two rap-style tracks called The 80s and The 90s, about his days in TAKE THAT.

One shocking lyric describes how he’d like to cut former manager Nigel Martin-Smith’s eyes with a Stanley knife, says a record label source.

Two more amazing songs are The Actor, inspired by his hero DAVID BOWIE and She’s Madonna — which I told you on Saturday the Queen Of Pop loves.

Robbie has also recorded a tribute to NEIL TENNANT and CHRIS LOWE called We’re The Pet Shop Boys, written by US synth guru MY ROBOT FRIEND.

There are two cover versions on the album: Kiss Me, a hit for Robbie’s right-hand man STEPHEN DUFFY and THE HUMAN LEAGUE’s Louise, which Robbie has said is one of his favourite songs.

LILY ALLEN sings backing vocals on two tracks.

With PET SHOP BOYS production and great tracks, I think it’s a shame Robbie’s not squaring up to Timberlake.

I realy don't like Robbie Williams, he's so smug and big headed.
He just does'nt come across to me as someone who should be a well respected musical artist.

Yeah, for someone who can't write music or lyrics, he's awfully smug. He's also not as attractive as he thinks. And he comes from 'round here, which is embarrassing.

I'll just end up listening to the tracks at work against my will.
They already seem to be playing about 4 of his songs at the moment.... on constant loop with a few other songs.... :-o

In reply to:

indeed. but he is charismatic. timberlake on the other hand looks good. which does not really compensate his boring michael jackson songs.
However, I think robbie williams has a potential as an entertainer very few people in his league have. So in case he is brave enough to release something not entirely commercial like Swing When You're Winning, I'd give it a chance.

And of course I like the idea of having an album concept. Even if it is just about loosely biographical songs it has at least a bit of substance and perhaps he has something to say - and it would be nice to see someone having something remotly looking like a message in the charts, which seem to made up of rich niggas playing around with blingbling, girls and guns while being incapable of creating a song which is not 95% stolen from some already famous pop tune, and chicks who promote dancing, singing and having fun to some sample stolen from some already famout pop tune.

He's certainly more presentable than Willaims, Williams has a BIG mouth and is a prize c**t IMO.

Have you heard the new Timberlake single? I have, what's more it sounds very good ( my credibilty sinking fast )but seriously though th0mas, his new single is rather good.

Didn't Bowie once describe Robbie as akin to a "a cruise ship entertainer"? Or is my "medication" making my imagination run riot, yet again?
