A collaboration with Sly and the Family Stone legend Rose Stone, "Revolution" was one of the last songs Robbie Williams wrote for Escapology
. He explained on his website
: "This was added to the album at the eleventh hour. We actually wrote it by mistake, and the day we wrote it, I went home thinking 'Well, at least we've got a great tune for the start of the next album.' And then I thought 'I'm not waiting years to put that on an album!' So we quickly recorded it and asked Rose Stone to come down and sing with me on it."
