This might be the first Robbie Williams album I get!

That "Rudebox" track is a bit shit though, if it's the RW one of course.

Only five tracks???
I've been around the world for a number of reasons. I've seen it all the change of seasons, and I, my lord, may I say nothing?

I guess that "the album includes the following tracks" is not the same as "the album only includes 5 tracks", is it?

It could be an interesting album. I might get it, I'm sure that the RW & PSB collaborations will sound great. I hope there are least 3 or 4 tracks done with the PSB.

I'd say that either 'The Actor' and 'Lovelight' (or maybe both) are produced by the PSB.

The Rudebox in the BBC stream is a Dub. It has some CASIO sounds. I like the few vocal moments.

"Rudebox" is rather interesting, but could this really be the actual single version? Hardly any RW vocals on it. Well, it's gonna be interesting.

the only vocals you hear of RW is the lyrics to another track by a black act in the 80s but I can't remember who

UPDATE

I think it was Boops! by Sly & Robbie, who were Grace Jones's session guys.

Note the "Dub" attached to the title in the radio stream. It's not meant to be the radio version of the track. Madonna also released a Dub of her 'Hung up' before releasing the proper song.

Is it an Official info? Cos Robbie's latest album is not so old, and the official site don't say anything about this mini album or EP. It's sound like a fake rumour.

It's not a mini album/EP, they're just some of the tracks that might be on the album. He's done 2 tracks with Pet Shop Boys, a cover and a brand new one, from what I can gather.

The thing that confuses me is that Ghost/A Place To Crash is done for an August release and they are both from Intensive Care and not this new dance album

Ghost/A Place To Crash will be the new single? Is it a double A side, or they both will be released on separate singles?
I'm happy for Ghosts, but A Place... is a very weak song.

If it has only 5 tracks, it's an EP.
