This is a first in Williams career and will see him leaving his home of Universal Music. The lucrative deal with Sony will reunite Williams with Guy Chambers who collaborated on some of Williams biggest hits including 'Angels', 'Millennium' and 'Let Me Entertain You'.

Williams is thrilled with the new partnership; "The team at Sony are professional, incredibly hungry, and have a great energy. They're inspired, I'm inspired. I'm more ready than I ever have been and I'm totally convinced I'm in the right place. I look forward to working on this album, which is an album I'm immensely proud of, in this exciting new partnership with Sony Music."
No set date has been given to the album's release but it is expected to hit shelves in the forthcoming year. Watch this space.
