It looks like hipsters will have a reason to check out the next album from Robbie Williams. Yeah, that may seem a bit off, but Dotmusic revealed that Williams has one particular guest vocalist on the album that may make you actually want to give it a listen. The UK popster Lily Allen recorded three tracks on the album back when she was still an unknown.
Williams has enlisted the help of some pretty awesome musicians, including Mark Ronson. The Pet Shop Boys and William Orbit. You can sample the lead single off the new album, "RudeBox," over at rubebox74.com if you feel like checking it out. Cuz you so nasty.
In other Lily Allen news, we'll finally get to catch her in person as she is touring North America this October. There are very few dates here in the US, so consider yourself lucky if she happens to be stopping by your town.
