Robbie Williams SECURES HIS 14TH UK NUMBER 1 ALBUM WITH ‘XXV’

THE MUSIC ICON HAS NOW BEATEN ELVIS PRESLEY’S RECORD AS THE SOLO ARTIST WITH THE MOST UK NUMBER 1 ALBUMS – ONLY THE BEATLES HAVE MORE

HIS TOTAL CHART-TOPPING ALBUMS ACROSS HIS SOLO WORK AND RECORDS RELEASED WITH TAKE THAT NOW TOTALS 19, PLACING HIM IN THE TOP TWO ACTS OF ALL TIME WITH THE MOST NUMBER 1S ACROSS THEIR CATALOGUE

Robbie Williams has secured his 14th UK Number 1 album today with ‘XXV’, which has topped the chart in its first week of release.

With this incredible achievement, the music icon has broken the record for the solo artist with the most UK Number 1 albums. He equalled Elvis Presley’s chart record when he secured his 13th Number 1 album with 2019’s ‘The Christmas Present’. Only The Beatles now have more UK Number 1 albums than Robbie with 15.

His total chart-topping UK albums across his solo work and records released with Take That now stands at 19. It places him in the top two acts of all time with the most Number 1s across their catalogue with only Paul McCartney with more.

Robbie said today: “Thank you to everyone who’s supported the album: everyone who’s bought it, streamed it, downloaded it and reviewed it. I’m so pleased that it’s gone to Number 1, and whilst it feels strange to be receiving an award during these sombre times, I wanted to thank you all for your support and dedicate this to the fans, who I never take for granted. I really appreciate it, thank you so much.”

‘XXV’, released via Columbia Records, celebrates 25 years of Robbie as a solo artist and features countless Number 1 smash hit singles and fan favourites all newly orchestrated by Jules Buckley, Guy Chambers and Steve Sidwell, and re-recorded with the acclaimed Metropole Orkest in The Netherlands.

Both the standard and deluxe albums feature the new song ‘Lost’, while the deluxe album includes four more original songs – ‘Disco Symphony’, ‘More Than This’, ‘The World And Her Mother’ and ‘Home Thoughts From Abroad’. Robbie classics featured on the album include the legendary ‘Angels’ and ‘Let Me Entertain You’; the UK Number 1 hit singles ‘Millennium’, ‘She’s The One’ and ‘Candy’; ‘Kids’, the anthemic duet with Kylie Minogue; as well as ‘Rock DJ’, ‘Feel’, ‘No Regrets’ and more.

This summer Robbie announced a new arena tour with dates across the UK and Ireland. Opening with two nights next month at London’s The O2, the autumn tour will be a joyous celebration of Robbie’s 25 years as a solo artist and will see him perform shows in Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow and Dublin. Tickets are available here.

‘XXV’ is another huge milestone in the glittering career of one of the world’s most decorated artists. Robbie has six of the Top 100 best-selling albums in British history, has sold a huge 80 million albums worldwide, achieved 14 Number 1 singles and a record 18 BRIT Awards – more than any other artist in music history.
