Robbie Williams to duet with Tyson Fury on his first Christmas album | Ents & Arts News

Robbie Williams is teaming up with boxer Tyson Fury on his first ever Christmas album.

The Christmas Present will feature a whopping 28 festive tracks – some of them well-known, and some of them less-so.

Heavyweight fighter Fury will be joining the Take That star on a track about a drunken office party called Bad Sharon.

Williams is understood to have had the idea of working with the sportsman when he went along to watch Fury’s Nevada bout with Tom Schwarz in June.

The album will be split into two collections – Christmas past and Christmas future – as well as bonus tracks.

Sir Rod Stewart, Bryan Adams and Jamie Cullum also feature on the collection.

In a statement to his fans, Williams said: “I’m beyond excited to announce my first ever Christmas album.

“I’ve done a lot in my career and releasing this record is another dream come true.

“Making this album has been so much fun and I can’t wait for you all to hear it.”

It’s his 13th album and was written in locations around London, Los Angeles and Stoke-on-Trent.

It will be a busy festive period for Williams, who will also be singing the theme song for a Channel 4 Christmas special of The Tiger Who Came To Tea.

The Christmas Present is out on 22 November.
