his sugar is raw

Robbie Williams returns with "Candy", the first single from his forthcoming ninth longplayer, "Touch The Crown".

The jaunty little number was written by Robbie and his Take That compadre, Gary Barlow. A slapstick vid was lensed for the quirky little single over two days at Spitalfields Market in London. Check out the colorful clip below.

Robbie has certainly returned with something upbeat and unexpected. Nothing brooding. Not a splash of synthy, filtered dance in the entire track. No forced hip hop leanings. Pure, unadulterated pop that only Robbie can deliver. In fact, Mr. Williams sounds rejuvenated after several years of navel gazing. May his pop flag continue to wave!

"Candy" will hit the "shops" on October 29.

  1. Between Robbie's Candy and Kylie's Timebomb this is fun pop year.
