ROBBIE WILLIAMS GETS INTO DURY'S 'PANTIES'
And they're to be joined by Madness, Cerys Matthews and Grant Nicholas on the re-recording of Dury's 'New Boots And Panties'...
The record, re-titled 'Brand New Boots And Panties', will also feature Sinead O'Connor, Billy Bragg, Shane MacGowan and Keith Allen. With the exception of Billy Bragg and Madness, all the other artists recorded their tracks with Dury's band, The Blockheads.
The full tracklisting for the album runs: 'Wake Up & Make Love With Me' - Sinead O'Connor & The Blockheads
'Sweet Gene Vincent' - Robbie Williams & The Blockheads
'I'm Partial To Your Abracadabra' - Paul McCartney & The Blockheads
'My Old Man' - Madness

'If I Was With A Woman'- Cerys Matthews & The Blockheads

The album is released on April 9 via East Central One Records. A spokesperson for Dury revealed the possibility of a TV special featuring the artists involved, although nothing has yet been finalised.
Dury died last year following a long battle against cancer. The profits from the album will be donated to the charity Cancer BACUP, with whom Dury was actively involved.
