Swings Both Ways Is The 1ꯠth UK No.1 Album

The news is in - at the end of an amazing week for Robbie, Swings Both Ways has gone straight to number 1 on the Official UK Albums Chart!

This staggering achievement not only earns Robbie an Elvis-equalling tally of 11 albums at the top spot but sees Swings Both Ways become the 1ꯠth ever Official No.1 Album, a whole 999 releases after Frank Sinatra's Songs For Swingin' Lovers! became the first.

It seems the 57 years between the release of the two landmark albums - both of which were recorded at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles - have done nothing to diminish people's love of a good old fashioned Swing song; a huge thanks goes to everyone who bought the record and helped it on its way. To add another milestone to the incredible journey of Robbie's tenth studio album, Swings Both Ways also gathered the highest number of pre-orders in history.

Robbie told

I am over the moon that Swings Both Ways is number one! And such an honour to be the 1ꯠth album in that spot too, following Frank Sinatra who was the first person in that spot and my hero. Thanks to everyone who bought the record, see you all on the tour next year!
