Losers
by Robbie Williams (featuring Lissie)

Album: Take The Crown (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This jangly, angst-filled power ballad finds Robbie duetting with American alternative folkie Lissie. Said Williams: "Lissie's just amazing. She is an amazing singer... she's like Stevie Nicks. There's this bit of craziness at the end, and it just goes into a different gear."
  • The song is a cover of a recording by American vocal and instrumental duo Belle Brigade, which originally featured on their 2011 eponymous debut album. Robbie commented to The Sun: "In 1997 or 1998, 'Losers' would have been a single. Now you won't be able to play 'Losers' on the radio. Times have really changed - listen to 'S--t On The Radio' and you will know."
