ROBBIE Williams reveals he felt blessed to record with rockers The Struts in a behind the scenes look at their new track Strange Days.
The band hooked up with Robbie in sunny LA earlier this year to lay down the anthemic song which reflects on the uncertain times caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Robbie said: "It’s an incredible song and I feel blessed to be involved. The Struts are so incredibly talented – Luke has such an amazing voice. These are strange days, and this is an anthem for these strange times.
"Both the song and the video were shot using the covid guidelines, and I think the video is a great piece of art. It wasn’t so much a challenge, just a different and new way of working."
In our exclusive video, Robbie and The Struts frontman Luke Spiller stand on the front steps of producer Jon Levine's home and belt out the heartfelt song.
Speaking in the mini-documentary about the band's new record, he said: "We did a vocal for a wonderful song that has been gifted my way. It's been an absolute pleasure and a privilege to listen to this man sing.
"It's great to be a fan of someone… and a bit of this recording I was just lying on the ground listening to him sing, and it's like having a hero here. I genuinely mean that."
The four-piece band – Luke, guitarist Adam Slack, bassist Jed Elliot, and drummer Gethin Davies – will see third album, Strange Days, released on Friday.
It features nine original tracks with feature slots from Def Leppard's Joe Elliott and Phil Collen, The Strokes' Albert Hammond Jr and guitar god Tom Morello.
There's also a rollicking cover of Kiss B-side Do You Love Me, for good measure.
Singer Luke said: "We've given it everything we've got with these tracks. We captured absolute f*****g lightning in a bottle and I hope people can hear that and I hope people know that. And I'm not quite sure it'll ever happen again."
