The album was mostly written in Robbie’s home studio and was recorded in London. Amongst those who collaborated in the songwriting are Danny Spencer & Kelvin Andrews, Brandon Christy, Craig Russo, Richard Spencer and Scott Rudin, Chaz Jankel, Guy Chambers and Fil Eisler.
Of the legendary Trevor Horn’s production, Robbie says; “He’s added something to the record that I haven’t had on previous records – his genius”.
Continuing to talk about the album, Robbie says; “I want people to feel elated, I want them to dance, I want them to forget about who they are and where they are for 50 minutes – and, within those 50 minutes of forgetting who they are, I also hope people relate to the songs. This is a record that I’m very proud of – I think it’s fucking brilliant. I want it to be the record that, if people think of Robbie Williams, they go, “Yeah, Reality Killed The Video Star”.
