Robbie Williams is working on a new greatest hits album.
The ‘Rock DJ’ hitmaker – who previously released ‘Greatest Hits’ in 2004 and ‘In and Out of Consciousness: Greatest Hits 1990-2010’ – is working on another best of compilation to celebrate 25 years since the release of his first solo album ‘Life Thru A Lens’ and re-records some of his most beloved singles with a full orchestra.
A source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “Robbie is coming back strong.
“This greatest hits record is going to be his classics with a big band feel.
“Robbie’s voice is always sensational and when backed by a full orchestra it’s going to be really punchy.
“This September will mark 25 years since Robbie released ‘Life Thru A Lens’ in 1997.
“To mark this milestone with an incredible new greatest hits record is truly special.”
The former Take That singer also hopes to embark on a tour in support of the record at some point this year.
The insider added: “Robbie has big dreams and he wants it to happen as soon as possible.
“The plan is to hit the road at the end of the year.”
Robbie has been busy lately as last month he teamed up with producers Tim Metcalfe and Flynn Francis to release dance track ‘Sway’ as Lufthaus and the trio have promised they have more material to come .
The band said, “This project has kept us busy in the studio throughout the pandemic, so we’re thrilled to now release the first single.
“We deliberately kept Lufthaus unrevealed, so we look forward to releasing more music and revealing more material over the coming months.”
Robbie also shared that he has a wealth of material on his computer “that won’t see the light of day” for years.
He said: “Sometimes I have songs that stay on my computer for five years, like ‘Candy’, for example, I had that for three years.
“There are things that are on my computer now that I wrote two years ago that probably won’t see the light of day for another two years.”
