"I've been scared, thinking this sounds great, sounds confident, sounds big," Robbie recently said of his latest album Take the Crown. Luckily, Robster's hunch was spot on as the collection soared to the top along with lead single 'Candy', helping him to sell out numerous stadium shows for 2013. It's a hefty achievement to follow up, but one he's decided to do with a big ole slowie.
"This time I'll be different, I promise you/ This time I'll be special, you know I will," Robbie tells his love over lofty strings and a soaring chorus co-penned by his Take That pal Gary Barlow, echoing the melancholy of his Escapology days. The result may come as a bump to earth following the bouncy riffs of his previous cut; but like all of his ballads, if you stick with it, you won't regret it.
