Heavy Entertainment Show

Album: Heavy Entertainment Show (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • 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."
