Robbie Williams emerges from pop wilderness

Robbie Williams is to release a new single and album.

His single Bodies will be available for download on October 11 and in the shops a day later, with his album Reality Killed The Video Star out on November 9.

Williams has not released a single since She's Madonna in March 2007 or an album since Rudebox in October 2006.

The new single and album were both produced by Trevor Horn, the legendary producer who in his younger days was one half of electro-pop duo The Buggles.

The Buggles wrote and recorded number one hit Video Killed The Radio Star — the first song ever played on MTV — and the inspiration for the title of Williams' new album.

Since leaving Take That in 1996, Williams has enjoyed huge success as as solo artist: he has had six number one singles, every one of his UK studio albums has reached number one in the charts and he has sold a total of 55m records around the world.
