Robbie Williams has unveiled a brand new track which launches a scathing attack at the Brit Awards.

The singer, who performed at the awards last Wednesday (February 20) posted the track on his website earlier today along with the message: "Hey folks. Here's a gift from me and Guy (Chambers). We wrote it on Saturday and recorded it on Sunday. If you have kids in the room don't play it. It's called 'The Brits 2013'".

The opening of the track tells in no uncertain terms what the singer thought about the bash – which saw relatively unknown singer-songwriter Ben Howard as well as Emeli Sande scoop two gongs. The song begins with a spoken comment about attending last week's Brits with a repeated sample of him saying "blah-de-blah". He then starts singing, referencing his well-publicised brawl with Liam Gallagher: "Well the Brits last night was so fucking boring. Past are the days of yes, yes y'all-ing. Coke in the box 'til seven in the morning. Look the wrong way and we end up brawling when I had a bit of beef with you-know-who, and I fucked a few female stars or two."

Later on in the song, he adds: "It's like a VD clinic, only pricks are in it, so fucking corporate and professional and timid. To be frank sir, I prefer this showbiz chancer…"

At the end of last year, (November 11, 2012), the signer scored a chart double as his ninth album 'Take The Crown' and single 'Candy' occupied both Number One spots. The last time he had similar success was back in December 2001 when he had a Number One single with 'Something Stupid', his cover of Carson and Gaile's 1967 track featuring Nicole Kidman, and a Number One album with 'Swing When You're Winning'.
