1.24.13 - New Music - Robbie Williams
Robbie William’s is gearing up to release his ONE MILLIONTH single. Really? Well, no, but you get the hyperbole.
“Be A Boy” is the third single off his latest ‘Take The Crown’. The song nicely combines the pop of “Candy” and the rock of “Different”, while still being its own thing entirely.
The track has this great old school sound to it. The synths on it are very 80’s – as is the unobtrusive saxophone solo towards the end. The vocal “oh-way-ohhhhh” make the song soar in a One Republic/Coldplay kind of way, if that even makes sense. In fact, the melody sounds like it could have been taken from somewhere. I can’t put my finger on it, but it is eerily familiar.
The song is sure to do alright in the UK…not that William’s really needs to prove anything to anyone.
“Be A Boy” is available in the UK, but won’t be in the US…ever. Expect it to impact radio in February over thereee.
