Robbie Williams teams up with The Struts: After releasing the recent single Another Hit of Showmanship, featuring Albert Hammond Jr, Derby rockers The Struts have announced another great new track “Strange Days”– only this one features pop megastar member Robbie Williams.
Recording the album:
Frontman Luke Spiller said in an interview that Robbie Williams called him all of a sudden when he was in Quarantine Radio. And they ended up on video calling each other for about two hours the very first time they had ever talked to each other, they conversed about life and music and UFOs and everything else anybody can think to talk about. He then put forward an offer to work together in an album that Robbie readily accepted and while they were recording the album he would sing in his front porch.
Robbie added in an interview that they did a vocal for a wonderful song that has been brought to him as a present. It had been an absolute pleasure and a privilege to listen to this man sing. He expresses his love as first being a fan of someone and then having to record. Strange Days finds The Struts joining allies with not only Robbie Williams and Albert Hammond Jr, but also Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Phil Collen on the hip-shaking stomper “I Hate How Much I Want You.” which seems to the upcoming release.
The idea of the album:
The idea for the Strange Days album came up this spring. After the band was tested for COVID-19, they moved into Jon Levine’s Los Angeles house. Levine is a producer who worked extensively on the band’s acclaimed sophomore album YOUNG & DANGEROUS. Within a handful of days, they were able to produce nine original tracks along with their masterful cover of a KISS B-side: a lean, mean body of work that amounts to their most fascinating result to date.
