Robbie Williams – Swings Both Ways
Robbie Williams has a second dab at making a swing-influenced record this week with the release of his new album Swings Both Ways. Featuring duets with Lily Allen, Olly Murs and Michael Buble, the album also sees Williams reuniting with producer Guy Chambers for the first time in a decade.
Jake Bugg – Shangri La
Also returning this week is Jake Bugg, who presents his Rick Rubin-produced second record Shangri La. Featuring ‘What Doesn’t Kill You’, the 19-year old has promised a more mature second record, which retains the grit of his debut.
JLS – Goodbye – The Greatest Hits
After announcing earlier this year that they were parting ways, JLS round up their career with a ‘Greatest Hits’ package. Including huge hits ‘Beat Again’, ‘One Shot’ and ‘She Makes Wanna’, this is sure to be in lots of stockings this Christmas.
