Robbie Williams set to be Christmas number one
05 Dec 2013
The artists for this year’s Christmas No.1 have been announced with Robbie Williams making the list.
Robbie Williams is one of the contenders for this year’s Christmas No.1 with his cover of the classic Dream A Little Dream Of Me.
The single is due to be released on 15 December, although last night Robbie released a preview of the track with his music video.
In the quest for the Christmas No.1 Robbie is up against collaborator Lilly Allen, who he recorded a duet of the song Dream A Little Dream Of Me on his album Swings Both Ways.
However, Robbie is going it alone when he releases the single version of the track later this month.
Lily Allen’s Christmas track, Somewhere Only We Know, is featured on the John Lewis’s ‘Rabbit and Hare’ Christmas television ad.
Amongst the others up against Robbie are the expected competitors including this year’s X Factor winner and last year’s winner James Arthur with his single Recovery.
Some surprises to this year’s list include the star of Channel 4’s Rock School Lil’ Chris. The singer has partner up with his friend, Lloyd Wilkinson, to try and get to the No.1 spot with Christmas Number One (#FeedEmYellowSnow).
Robbie Williams has previously had three Christmas No.1s and has recently enjoyed chart success with his album Swings Both Ways, which took the title of the 1000th No.1 in the Official Albums Chart.
Robbie Williams has recently announced that he will be taking his album Swings Both Ways on UK tour.
