 Robbie Williams: Discovered new pride for own songs

Robbie Williams has found a new appreciation for his own work thanks to his 25th anniversary album.

The 48-year-old singer has re-recorded some of his biggest hits on record 'XXV' and he admitted looking back at his old singles has made him realize what he's accomplished and achieved over the years.

The musician, who has repeatedly spoken of self-loathing and an inner struggle - for example because of his weight - told BBC News: 'I now understand why people celebrate anniversaries. You can look back and say, 'Maybe I was closer to what I wanted to do than I thought at the time.'” The 'No Regrets' hitmaker also joked that having an orchestra for the reworked songs gave him dignity to engage. He continued, 'And then there's also these incredibly talented people who play their instruments and form an orchestra, and then the orchestra gives these frequencies that are angelic and godlike and add to what might otherwise be discarded pop records , meaning added. I have Gravitas on these records now! I am worthy!'

Robbie rose to fame as a teenager when he joined Take That, and he says he will always be 'incredibly grateful' that his career has continued so long after he left the boy band in 1995. He said: 'My big feeling my prime professionally could have been when I was 16 to 21 when I was in Take That. I know how fragile I am as a human being and to be a been or a forgotten or whatever would have happened to me after Take That... I'm incredibly grateful that the ship is still moving forward. In short, I'm incredibly grateful: that's what the anniversary has done for me.'
