Я надеюсь все же, что они не ошиблись с выбором первого сингла, ибо Shine My Shoes вполне было бы по силам быть первым по счету

Сань
я незнаю по каким критериям вы вибираете хорошие песни для синглов... но ШайнМайШуз далеко до сингла по меркам Роби Вильямса!

это такой же трек как например Суперблайнд, Десептикон или Бласфеми для Реалити.
Тобишь - качественный материал связующий основные песни в единую картину, но не более!

Посмотрим конечно, что ещё нам покажет Го Джентль...

всё окей!
мне по  ощущениям очень нравится уже эта идея со Свингом... И наверное самыми любимыми будут СвингсВоузУэй и МиниМушер.
у этих песен очень хороший задор и подходящий мне текст))))

Кстати, Swing Supreme на 90% будет свинг вариация на привычную Supreme.

Я эту информацию пропустил ранее, но народ говорит, что Роб об этом еще ранее говорил в покере.

186

Swing Supreme на 90% будет свинг вариация

Я позволил себе так подумать, прочитав трек-лист. А что, даже я - не композитор и не музыкант, вполне слышу в своём сознании минимум две свинг версии на Суприм. Одна - задорная, в стиле недавнего дуэта с песней про писюна и более минорная, похожая на Eternity (Orchestral Version). В любом случае, повторюсь, бодрит изобилие новостей от Роба в этом году, концовка года так и вообще - для меня ) хотя Рудбокс 2 тоже 100% моё желание развития событий. Хочу сотрудничества Роба с крутыми молодыми ребятами из актуальной и свежей музыкальной среды. Должны быть и интеллектуальные альбомы, не всё же играть в псевдо-рокера ) Надеюсь, что Роб примет на вооружение успех будующего свинга и начнёт делать упор на подобное творчество. Скажу больше, я за то, что бы после Рудбокса 2 был снова свинг.

Код:
это такой же трек как например Суперблайнд, Десептикон или Бласфеми для Реалити.

Deceptacon - любимая песня с альбома, и, помню даже ходил слух о выпуске сингла. А с выбором синглов, как мы все поняли в последнее время, вообще нет логики ни какой, ну или она ооочень тонко по английски где то спрятана эта логика. Shine My Shoes - энергичная бодряночка, задающая современный тон альбому, который сделан по всем параметрам начала прошлого века. Жду от альбома массивный удар тяжелоартиллерийский, где каждый номер будет искриться как шампанское, а игра большого оркестра заставит Роба и нас оказаться в атмосфере настоящего шоу, праздника, дерзкого, непосредственного и очень роскошного, пусть хоть и на минуты прослушивания этого альбома )
Ждём новостей )

187

Это рудбокс интеллектуальная музыка?)) Да и рокер из него уже не выходит, даже псевдо.
Песня обычная. Выпустил бы он её или нет- лично я бы ничего не потерял или не получил.

Любительское видео на Shine My Shoes пришлось по душе

отличный отзыв на первую песню

Single review: Robbie Williams – Shine My Shoes
Josh Gill's Blog
Complete with a swinging beat, dampened piano and a big brass band, Shine My Shoes shows that Robbie Williams (and writing partner Guy Chambers) are more than capable of writing fun and exciting songs that stand alongside the abundance of age old swing classics.

The first single from his newly announced second swing album Swings Both Ways (full story here), Robbie’s Shine My Shoes is an explosive introduction to his highly anticipated followup venture into the genre.

Opening with rim-shots, finger-snaps and a nicely dampened piano, Robbie’s clean and crisp vocals sit nicely over the minimal verse instrumentation.

Drawing the verses to a close the excellently orchestrated brass band starts to build and explodes into action for the chorus. The chorus has the audience participation factor too, with plenty of obviously placed and catchily simple “hey hey hey’s” for people to join in with. It would fit nicely alongside some of his older hits in a live setting and would no doubt have the audience singing along.

Shine My Shoes is a strong lead single for Swings Both Ways. It is very well produced and having brilliant instrumentation, and boasting some fun hooks and dripping with the trademark confident Robbie Williams swagger.

You can purchase Shine My Shoes (as well as preorder the full album) from iTunes, and be sure to keep up to date on all the latest Robbie Williams news over on his official website.

Моя любимая тема - кредиты альбома!

- Ну, что ж, 9 новых песен (включая Supreme с оркестром).
- Лысый Стив Сидвелл снова поработал с Робби.
- 10 студий, в которых альбом записывался/сводился и пр.
- Стив Пауэр спустя 10 лет вновь продюсер - пускай и только на одной песне - Wedding Bells
+ 1 песня с Гари Барлоу (он на бэк-вокале и за пианино) - также Wedding Bells

Большой релиз обещает быть, Леша Азарта был прав весной:

а меня порадовало наличие труда вот этого дяди - Danny Spencer
который смастерил для Роби и Рудибокс и Реалити.

Я очень доволен, что Роберт загадал нам именно такой альбом! Вот если бы ХОТЬ ЧУТЬ-ЧУТЬ раньше был релиз, чтобы осень встретить с этими нотками. Вильямс в плане подхода к людям черезчур прямолинеен - все релизы постоянно в конце осени.

195

Тедди сегодня год ;)))

196

Попробую продвигать новый альбом и через свою танцевальную группу по буги.

И самому приятнее под Роба танцевать и другие пусть знают наших ))

В общем, Роб супер вовремя со свингом возврщается - мне точно в настроение попал.

А Shine My Shoes напоминает Элвисовский период "Тюремный Рок", собственно, та же Trouble из RW Show той же породы.

Robbie to outsell Gary Barlow in album war

 
Robbie-to-outsell-Gary-Barlow-in-album-war
Printable version
After 14 years of abandoning us all to an audio wilderness Gary Barlow has finally released his 3rd album after over a decade wait, and Paddy Power reckon it's going to be a corker, offering odds of 1/1 it will be a UK number 1.

The bookmaker are also offering match bets on who will sell the most albums, as Robbie Williams releases his new offering 'Swing Both Ways' featuring duets with Kelly Clarkson and Olly Murs. Robbie currently has the edge with odds of 4/7 his album will be winning the sales game against Gary's 5/4, and he is also the favourite to enjoy the most chart success at 4/5.

But it's not all doom and gloom for Mr Barlow as its odds of 7/4 he will put his X Factor success to good use and perform with Take That on one of the Live Shows, and its 5/1 he and Robbie will put their chart bloodbath behind them and perform a duet.

A spokesperson for Paddy Power said, 'Robbie has always been Take That's bad boy making him chart gold. The odds are saying Mr nice guy, Gary Barlow might not be able to compete'.

Album Sales match bet
Robbie Williams 4/7
Gary Barlow 5/4

Album to be UK Number 1 1/1

Chart success match bet
Robbie Williams 4/5
Gary Barlow 1/1

Specials
Robbie Williams to tour with Take That in 2014 5/4
Take That to perform on X Factor live shows 7/4
Gary and Robbie to duet on X Factor live shows 5/1

202

Специальный концерт будем обсуждать здесь:

INTRODUCING... SHINE MY SHOES

07 Oct 2013
Each week for the next 13 weeks we'll be taking you by the hand and sweeping you off your feet as RobbieWilliams.com fox-trots out in to the big wide world of Swings Both Ways to squeeze every last little drop of gossip we can from the people who helped make Robbie's forthcoming album as awesome as it is.

We've spoken to Robbie. We've spoken to his collaborators. We've scoured every last lyric and sang along to them like howling alley cats. And now it's time for you to hear our findings.

So head back to RobbieWilliams.com every Saturday brunch (UK time) between now and the New Year to read a brand new edition of our all-new 'Introducing…' Swing series, as we get all to know one song from the album a little better each week.

First up, let us formally introduce you to someone we think you're going to really hit it off with: please meet Shine My Shoes…

Shine My Shoes, the defiant and upbeat opening track to Swings Both Ways, sees Robbie re-united with his long-term writing partner in crime, Guy Chambers.

Of course, Robbie and Guy go back years. The duo co-wrote some of Robbie's biggest hit singles - including Angels, Rock DJ, Feel, Millennium, Let Me Entertain You, No Regrets, Supreme and Eternity - and last year they paired up on-stage for the first time in more than a decade for a good ol' singalong around the piano during Robbie's sell-out run of shows at the O2 in London. Guy also produced Swings Both Ways and co-wrote six songs on the album.

The third writer of Shine My Shoes is Chris Heath. Confidant and author of both Robbie's biographies, Feel (2004) and You Know Me (2010), Chris helped lend a lyrical sprinkling to three tracks on the new album - Go Gentle, No One Likes A Fat Pop Star and Shine My Shoes.

"It's in the spirit of a Sammy Davis Jr. song," explains Robbie about the latter, once again inspired by one of his all-time idols to whom he also dedicated Swing When You're Winning alongside Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra.

"In the biopic The Rat Pack there's a dream sequence where Sammy Davis Jr. is dancing against the racists. I'm singing against the haters and the naysayers, giving them my time in the form of a swing song detailing exactly why they should hate me."

Robbie certainly loses none of his inspiration's defiance in the translation from scene to song. "The smugness will infuriate the haters," Robbie explains, "and the people who kind of like me will just think that it's sweet".

Swing along to the lyrics by watching the following video below.

Swings Both Ways is released on 18th November, but you can download Shine My Shoes instantly when you pre-order the album on iTunes.

KINGS OF SWING: SAMMY DAVIS JR.
The multi-talented Sammy Davis Jr. was born in 1925 in New York City and was famed for winning his battle against racism to become one of the biggest and brightest stars of the Swing era, not to mention being a key member of the acclaimed Rat Pack alongside the likes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.

He was a hugely versatile performer - both on stage and on the silver screen - combining his comedic, acting, dancing and singing showbiz talents to help transform prejudices forever by refusing to appear in any clubs that practiced racial segregation. In 1960, Davis Jr. married Swedish actress May Britt at a time when interracial marriages were forbidden by law in 31 states across America.

Davis Jr. was also notorious for enjoying the finer trappings of his glamourous 1950s Hollywood lifestyle and he continued to perform until the early 1980s. The legendary trailblazer passed away in 1990 in Beverly Hills, California, leaving a glittering career of music, movies and mayhem behind for millions to enjoy the world over for decades to come.

cameron adams ‏@cameron_adams 6 Oct
Very impressed with cheeky listen to Robbie Williams' Swing Both Ways album. Duet with Rufus Wainwright is thunderously camp; of course

cameron adams ‏@cameron_adams 17h
There are some classic Robbie Williams lyrics on No One Likes a Fat Pop Star, which was written with Guy Chambers. Coming next..

cameron adams ‏@cameron_adams 17h
RW's No One Likes a Fat Popstar ``Showbiz is a single chin game, scum paparazzi & weight police nasties have narrowed the hall of fame."
