To be honest, I have never been a Robbie Williams fan. I have a couple of singles but that’s it. But I know that I won’t be able to walk past this album and not buy it simply because of the cover. I love it. The colours, the simplicity, the motor bike? I’m really not sure but it all comes together into this.
It makes me miss the old LP, the good old 12″ cover which equates to 144 square inches as opposed to a CD cover – a paltry 22 square inches. Just no comparison.
I love the clever title too. Video may have killed the radio star but reality killed the video star. It must be no coincidence that Trevor Horn is producing.
The first single is called “Bodies” and isn’t too bad at all.
The single is out on 12 October 2009 and the album on 9 November 2009.
