The 100th edition of the series was released today (July 20) and features Williams’ massive hit ‘Angels’. He’s had a total of 30 tracks featured across the series – the first was ‘Old Before I Die’ from the LP ‘Life thru a Lens’ on 1997’s ‘NOW 37’.
The pop star thanked the ‘NOW’ team and congratulated them on reaching 100 albums with a video, posted to Twitter. Watch it below.
Last month, Williams joined Taylor Swift during her second night at Wembley to perform ‘Angels’. Swift began to perform the song solo while playing the piano before Williams arrived on stage to sing the rest of the song with her.
Meanwhile, Williams was announced as a new judge for this year’s series of X-Factor – alongside his wife Ayda Field, Simon Cowell and Louis Tomlinson.
Speaking of the news, Williams said: “I’ve done tour, promo, tour, promo for nearly 30 years, and now it’s time to branch out and do something different.”
“This new panel is all about optimism, everyone has a real passion for finding a new star,” Cowell added. “The three new judges bring a whole new energy and I’m excited.”
The line-up changes see Louis Walsh leave the show after 13 years, while Sharon Osbourne will appear as an impartial fifth judge.
