Robbie Williams signs with Take That’s label

Robbie has confirmed that he has joining Take That’s record company, Universal Music

The first big album of autumn next year (yes, 2012!) has been confirmed – Robbie Williams' ninth studio album.

Robbie has confirmed that he is currently holed up in his Los Angeles studio working on the album – which will be his first after joining Take That’s record company, Universal Music.

Robbie is, of course, one of the biggest chart stars of all time, with six Official Number One singles and nine Official Number One albums to his name, all as a solo artist – and all released by British-owned record company EMI. And that is without counting his Take That tally, of course.

Robbie’s last album, ‘Reality Killed The Video Star’, was released in November 2009 and reached Number 2 in the Official Albums Chart. Check out his full chart history here

In the meantime, Robbie fans will have to get their fix from the DVD / Blu-ray release of ‘Progress Live’ 2011 on November 21 and the live album version, which is scheduled for release a week later.
