This is the opening song and title track of the eleventh studio album by Robbie Williams. He told Beats 1 regarding the record's name:
"I was musing over the phrase 'light entertainment' - all the huge TV shows from when I was a kid, 30 million people watching them, this huge shared experience of these moments called light entertainment.
Sometimes it can be levelled at people in a bad way, but for me that's heavy entertainment. That's what I'm hoping to do with this album - to have a shared experience with millions of people through the medium of light entertainment, but on steroids."
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
