Most of the album, Reality Killed The Video Star, was written in Robbie’s home studio and was recorded in London. The album was produced by the legendary Trevor Horn, about whom Robbie says: "He's added something to the record that I haven't had on previous records – his genius".
Robbie collaborated with a number of people on the songwriting for the 13 tracks on the album, including Danny Spencer & Kelvin Andrews, Brandon Christy, Craig Russo, Richard Scott and Scott Ralph, Chaz Jankel, Guy Chambers and Fil Eisler.
Talking about the album, Robbie said; "I want people to feel elated, I want them to dance, I want them to forget about who they are and where they are for 50 minutes – and, within those 50 minutes of forgetting who they are, I also hope people relate to the songs. This is a record that I’m very proud of – I think it’s fucking brilliant. I want it to be the record that, if people think of Robbie Williams, they go, “Yeah, Reality Killed The Video Star”.
