Robbie Williams enlists famous friends for duets album

British pop star Robbie Williams has enlisted singers Lily Allen, Kelly Clarkson and Michael Buble for his new swing album. Swings Both Ways, Williams’ follow-up to 2001’s Swing When You’re Winning, also features collaborations with Rufus Wainwright and former The X Factor U.K. contestant Olly Murs.
Williams says, “I always knew I’d do another swing album and I think now is the perfect time to do it. The album this time is a definite ode and a loving glance towards a period on the planet that I was never invited to ’cause I wasn’t there.”
Williams’ track with Murs is a cover of I Wanna Be Like You from classic Disney movie The Jungle Book, while Allen appears on Dream a Little Dream.
Swings Both Ways is due to hit shelves in November (13).
