Robbie Williams celebrates 25 years of solo career with an album that includes his greatest hits – plus a new song.

British musician Robbie Williams (48) is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his solo career with a new album. “XXV” (Roman 25) will be released September 9th on Columbia Records. It will feature “countless number 1 hits and fan favorites,” according to Tuesday’s announcement.

The melodies will sound familiar to the listener, but the pieces come in a different guise. They were re-orchestrated by “Jules Buckley, Guy Chambers and Steve Sidwell and re-recorded in the Netherlands with the renowned Metropole Orkest”. 18 hits like “Let Me Entertain You”, “Come Undone”, “Millennium”, “Candy”, “She’s The One”, “Rock DJ” or “Angels” have been revised.

A brand new track

On the other hand, nobody knows a 19th track on the album. The brand new track is called “Lost” and according to the label it is “a touching song in the classic Robbie style with poignant lyrics, piano elements and uplifting strings”. Robbie Williams himself also promises “some surprises” via Instagram.

But that’s not all, there are ten more songs on the deluxe album. Among other things, the three original tracks “Disco Symphony”, “More Than This” and “The World And Her Mother”.

Farewell to the boy band

Robbie Williams rose to fame as a member of boy band Take That. In 1995 he had to leave the band after drug and party excesses. Two years later he started his successful solo career.
