Mr. Williams, can we talk about the aging?
An exciting topic. But how do you come up with that?
To publish a Christmas album. On the other hand you can find lots of Golf images and Videos on your Instagram Account. The signs clearly.
Ha! It's just that a Christmas album for Americans is not inevitably linked with the old age. The young artists are doing.
However, they are not American.
no, but I've lived long enough in the US to take this Spirit for me to claim. Apart from that, this Album is for me, but, above all, a Chance to escape the routines. I have now done for 30 years, always the same: Album, Promo, Tour. Album, Promo, Tour. And now and then a Swing Album that has broken the monotony a bit. You can't imagine what it is for a blessing to do a concept album. In addition, you have but of course right: I am a middle ages Entertainer. A Christmas album is so in my phase of life is very appropriate.
"For me, my life works just fine. Better than ever before."
Ages in the Pop easier?
I can't tell you, I know how hard the aging of the Pop used to be. For me all my life, but it works just fine. Better than ever before.
to what Extent?
I have enough time for my family and can do, nevertheless, extensively what I love otherwise. This is a Puzzle I've been working on for decades, unsuccessfully. I used to hold the life for an amusement Park. And I thought that the spaces would fill, if I have to live this glamorous, only hard enough to live – and a little something back for the family.
which of course is not the case.
of Course not. Now I'm taking things more consciously. I know in almost every Situation, why I do what I do. And I have enough time for Golf, my current Addiction. And also since we are seeing a clear improvement to earlier: Since I was addicted to cocaine. Golf is as very much healthier.
"With the Brexit, I have to assume that we will have no more tomatoes."
"The Christmas Present" is a kind of double album: One part wants to treat the past of Christmas, a part of the future. How about because the future of Christmas for you?
you Know Charles Dickens?
I had the concept for the Album Dickens’ Christmas story in the back of the head with the ghosts of the past, present, and Christmas future. This feeling I wanted to capture. As the actual future Christmas will look like, I don't know. With the forthcoming Brexit, I must however assume that we will have no more tomatoes.
why you're worried?
Very. I like tomatoes.
do you Like the EU?
you look rather worried in the future?
Who knows, what comes. It is said a lot of darkness ahead, but I can always move.
so you will start tend to not "Remain"-campaign?
Probably not. I'm not politically engaged enough. I have never been. And I don't think I'm going to it again.
I have no Faith in the policy. I don't trust the structures enough. This is not for me. I like Golf and football once in a while I sing.
And that is not compatible with the democratic commitment?
I'm a Fan of democracy. A great even. But it is not appropriate for me to take care of the Details that are important if you want to comment makes sense.
were you always clear that there would be another Robbie Williams Album?
There must always be something New for me, this is a matter of survival. If you are not progressing constantly forward, everything remains and breaks it. I have seen that. And I also want to experience really, never again. If you remained artistically once complete, it is almost impossible to get back. At least for me that is.
is it True that you were suffering at that time under the agoraphobia and the house hardly have to leave?
How do you imagine that? You have led a Hermit's life?
Not quite. People have visited me. I also worked in the Studio. But otherwise, I've eaten quite a lot of Chips and Donuts, and I'm fat.
you Know, in the meantime, what has made you afraid of?
Yes, but to explain them we would need more time than we have here.
How you found out of your state back out?
I heard one day the Killers, "Human" on the Radio. And for some reason, doors opened in my head and I thought, "Aahh! Then I make yet again an Album." And I did that.
So simple, Yes?
Ha, well, Yes, quite so simple it was actually. It took a while until I could move again safely.
The former Take That member of the Robbie Williams was once averse to any Excess, and still is one of the biggest pop stars in Europe. Now the 45 has published a-Year-old, the Christmas album "The Christmas Present".
