11 Sep 2012
The new Robbie Williams video for his comeback single, Candy is out now. Watch the official video and some behind the scenes footage.
If you haven’t heard the new song, you can hear and watch the Robbie Williams Candy video at the end of the article. We have also included a short clip of the Take That part-timer during the making of the Candy video.
American filmmaker Joseph Kahn, who previously worked on videos for Public Enemy, Muse, Lady Gaga and U2, directed the video. The shooting of the video took place over two days in August on location around London’s buzzing East End, particularly on Spitalfields Market.
Word spread quickly that superstar Robbie Williams was prancing around the streets of East London in a salmon suit and crowds gathered around the film team to watch the Rock DJ singer work on his much anticipated comeback video. “Work” included Robbie being run over, jump off a tall building and ride on a white horse while dressed as a knight with angel wings. Some fans even spotted Robbie twice but it turned out that Mr Williams had an identically dressed stuntman by his side for most of the more dangerous scenes.

Candy, the first new Robbie Williams single since 2009’s Morning Sun, is taking off the long-awaited comeback album Take The Crown that will hit the retailers on November 5th 2012.
Irish producer legend, Jacknife Lee and Robbie Williams’ friend and former Take That band mate, Gary Barlow, produced the 11-track album. Expectations on the album are high. It has almost been three years since Robbie Williams’ last and artistically quite disappointing album, Reality Killed The Video Star. Following the release of Reality Killed The Video Star and promotion duties, the heartthrob entered a rollercoaster life that, on the upside, saw him rejoin Take That for what turned out to be the most successful pop tour of all time by any artist and marry his fiancée Ayda Field. Earlier this year, the couple announced they were expecting a baby girl.
