London, November 24 : Fans of Robbie Williams can rejoice as his best friend Jonathan Wilkes has revealed that the singer is set to release his new album next year.
Wilkes, who met Williams at their hometown Stoke in October, revealed that the former 'Take That' member was nearly done with the album, and was putting the finishing touches to his latest material.
"He's on really good form. He's enjoying his time off and he's looking forward to releasing new material next year. You can't keep a good man down for long!" the Mirror quoted him as saying.
Mark Owen, fellow band member of the pop group, had previously revealed that he had had the privilege of listening to William's new tracks when he visited the singer's LA residence.
He had said: "It's really, really good - in fact it's even better than ours. I was a bit gutted."
