First two albums of Robbie Williams to be released on vinyl for the first time ever!
Universal Music announce the reissue of British singer Robbie Williams’ first two, multi-million selling solo albums, Life Thru A Lens and I’ve Been Expecting You, on vinyl for the very first time, including a special edition white vinyl of Life Thru A Lens, and aquamarine for I’ve Been Expecting You.
Originally released in October 1997, Life Thru A Lens was Robbie Williams debut solo album. It entered the chart at number 11 but had to wait almost six months before it reached number one. It eventually spent 147 weeks on the Top 100 and has been certified 8x Platinum by the BPI for UK sales in excess of 2 million copies. It includes the hit singles Old Before I Die, Lazy Days, South Of The Border, Let Me Entertain You and Angels, the latter his biggest selling single to date, and voted the best song of the last twenty-five years at the 2005 BRIT Awards.
Now certified 10 x Platinum by the BPI, with UK sales in excess of 2.5 million, I’ve Been Expecting You was originally released in October 1998, when it entered the chart at number one. It returned to the summit the following January and once again a month later. It includes the hit singles Millennium, No Regrets (with backing vocals from Pet Shop Boys’ Neil Tennant and The Divine Comedy’s Neil Hannon), Strong and She’s The One.
Set for release on September 24th, 2021, both titles are housed in gatefold sleeves, reproducing the original distinctive artwork. The albums have been newly mastered at Abbey Road Studios and will come along with download codes for digital units.
