Robbie Williams releasing new single before Christmas
Robbie Williams will release a new single before Christmas.
The ‘Candy’ hitmaker has teamed up with French DJ Bob Sinclar on ‘Erotico Romantico’ – which will be his first new material since 2017’s ‘The Heavy Entertainment Show’ – and it’s set to drop early next month.
Bob – whose real name is Christophe Le Friant – told the Daily Star newspaper: "It’s a little funky. It’s not disco but it’s quite slow, and it’s very festive with violin arrangements.
"It has a bit of the spirit of Jamiroquai, early 90s, it’s different. It’s like 100bpm, a very funky piece.
"The guy is just crazy. It was a dream for me to do something with him."
It’s thought the ‘X Factor’ judge could debut the track – which will be released the first week of December – on the ITV singing competition.
Explaining how the collaboration came about, Bob said: "We met at a charity gala by chance.
"I did a set for the audience, he came up to me to say: ‘We have to do something together’. I told him: ‘Let’s go.’ "
The two stars worked together in a studio in London, and the song should give both sets of fans something very different.
The DJ added: "It’s good to make music with the heart and this is where people say to themselves: ‘Bob Sinclar, he does not follow trends – it makes us discover new sounds.’ "
Bob’s comments about the upcoming single follow Robbie’s recent announcement that he will have his own Las Vegas residency in March 2019.
He said: "I’m beyond excited to announce my first ever residency in Las Vegas. To follow in the footsteps of some of the greatest entertainers of all time is a dream come true – I can’t wait."
