Williams says Russians are the best partyers in the world
Robbie Williams has shared the video for his new single ‘Party Like A Russian’.
The second song to be previewed from his forthcoming new album ‘The Heavy Entertainment Show’, the song pays tribute to Russians’ ability to party. Williams said of the song “Part of the British identity is that we all believe we’re the best at partying, most nations think that of themselves. But there ain’t no party like a Russian party (sorry S Club 7).”
The video sees Williams play a Russian oligarch at his mansion, surrounded by a troupe of female dancers.
Williams announced the album with a surprise TV advert during The X Factor last Sunday (September 25). The album’s title track was shared the same night, which also saw Williams play at London’s Roundhouse as part of Apple Music Festival.
Williams previewed two further new songs at the Apple Music Festival show, ‘Motherfucker’ and ‘Sensational’, which have both been played live before.
Out on November 4, ‘The Heavy Entertainment Show’ features co-writes with Brandon Flowers, John Grant, Ed Sheeran and Williams’ longtime writing partner Guy Chambers.
Williams told Beats 1 of the album: “I was musing over the phrase ‘light entertainment’ – all the huge TV shows from when I was a kid, 30 million people watching them, this huge shared experience of these moments called light entertainment.
“Sometimes it can be levelled at people in a bad way, but for me that’s heavy entertainment. That’s what I’m hoping to do with this album – to have a shared experience with millions of people through the medium of light entertainment, but on steroids.”
