About this album

Swing When You’re Winning is a traditional pop album by English pop singer Robbie Williams, released in 2001. Consisting mainly of pop standard song covers common to the Great American Songbook, this album is his fourth solo album released in the United Kingdom and his fifth solo album overall. Aside from the title, the album is not directly associated with Williams’ previous album, Sing When You’re Winning.

Born from his life-long love for Frank Sinatra - combined with the success of the track “Have You Met Miss Jones?” that he recorded for the film “Bridget Jones’s Diary” in early 2001 - the album was recorded at the Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, California.

The album features the UK number one single “Somethin’ Stupid”, a duet with Nicole Kidman. Additional featured songs include versions of “Beyond The Sea” which was featured in the 2003 animated motion picture Finding Nemo, and “Have You Met Miss Jones”, which was part of the soundtrack in the 2001 film Bridget Jones’s Diary. The album’s first song, “I Will Talk and Hollywood will Listen”, is the only original song on the album.

The album featured duets with actors Rupert Everett, Nicole Kidman, Jon Lovitz and Jane Horrocks, as well as a special guest performance from Robbie’s friend and former flatmate Jonathan Wilkes.
