Robbie gets back into the swing of things with his latest album 

ROBBIE WILLIAMS/ SWINGS BOTH WAYS

After professing his deep love for swing in the form of 2001's Swing When You're Winning, the reigning king of British pop is back at it with a sequel that sees him reuniting with a long-time producer Guy Chambers and former Take That bandmate Gary Barlow. Cheekily titled Swings Both Ways, Williams' second venture into the genre features both cover versions of old-school favourites (including one of his own) as well as new compositions. And in the same vein as Swing When You're Winning, there's also a handful of duets for us all to delight in with a guest spot from the likes of Rufus Wainwright, Lily Allen, Olly Murs, Kelly Clarkson and the king of swing himself, Michael Buble.
