Robbie Williams will release his first ever Christmas album, ‘The Christmas Present’, on Columbia Records on November 22.
Available in CD (standard and deluxe), vinyl and cassette formats, the double album will feature two discs – ‘Christmas Past’ and ‘Christmas Future’ – both including a brilliant mixture of original songs and special festive covers with some star guest appearances. The album is available to pre-order now.
Disc 1: ‘Christmas Past’ includes the wintry classics ‘Winter Wonderland’ (with backing vocals from the LMA choir), ‘Santa Baby’ featuring German singer Helene Fischer, ‘Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!’, a cover of ‘The Christmas Song’ (made famous by the Nat King Cole Trio), Slade’s ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’ featuring Jamie Cullum, and ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’, a duet with Robbie’s father Peter Conway.
Disc 2: ‘Christmas Future’, meanwhile, includes the original tracks ‘Time For Change’, ‘Home’, ‘Fairytales’ featuring Rod Stewart and ‘Bad Sharon’ with boxing champ Tyson Fury, plus the covers ‘Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)’ featuring Canadian singer/songwriter Bryan Adams and ‘I Believe In Father Christmas’.
The deluxe CD version of the album features another four bonus tracks including the duet ‘It Takes Two’ with Rod Stewart.
‘The Christmas Present’ is Robbie’s 13th studio album and another huge milestone in the glittering career of one of Britain’s most-loved artists.
