Just a few months ago, Robbie Williams inked a new deal with a new major record label, leaving the label, whom he joined once he went solo, behind. In the statement to announce his move, he promised a new album by the end of the year and new music has now arrived.
Robbie released his new single, “Party Like A Russian”, and it sounds like a modern march with a steady politic statement. I even gave him credit to sing those words in such a way it sounds like he’s singing the word “corruption” (or is that just me hearing that?!)
For some reason, Robbie with his own arrogance, big mouth and small heart, is the perfect artist to get away with songs like these. I’m glad he’s back, because he does have a habit to spice things up with a little bit of humor, tongue n cheek and a good dose of reality and truth. Even in a song like “Party Like A Russian”. Of course, that didn’t go down too well in Russia itself, who banned him from performing there now. That was to be predicted though.
