Whispers in the UK market suggest that Robbie Williams is a free agent, and considering options for his next label amid significant interest.
Could the star be on the move from Universal?
Williams signed to UMG in 2011, leaving behind a long-term deal at EMI.
He has subsequently released two albums through Island Records/UMG worldwide – and both parties have enjoyed considerable success from the arrangement.
2012’s Take The Crown charted at No.1 in eight countries, including Williams’ homeland.
The 2013 follow-up, Swings Both Ways, was a No.1 in five territories.
Throughout his career, Robbie Williams has won no less than 16 BRIT Awards and 3 Ivor Novello Awards.
In total, he has sold 70 million albums as a solo artist.
When Williams signed to UMG five years ago, his manager Tim Clark said: “This great new deal puts Robbie Williams firmly in control of his own destiny, but with the most muscular of partners.”
Evidently, Robbie’s still firmly in control of his destiny – and now has a big decision on his hands…Music Business Worldwide
