LONDON, Oct. 6 (UPI) -- British pop singer Robbie Williams is working on a new album, his manager said.
Tim Clark earlier this year was quoted as saying the singer wouldn't deliver a new CD to his record label EMI because he was uncertain how the company's new owners would market the album.
However, Clark has since told the BBC a new CD could be released as early as next year.
It will be Williams' first since "Rudebox" dropped in 2006.
"I would certainly hope that a new album will be coming next year. There are never any guarantees but that's what we would hope," Clark told the BBC. "He's been writing and we heard some wonderful stuff. I was with Robbie last week. He was at home and he was writing songs and he played some of them to us. He's in very fine spirits, in very fine form and I think what he's doing sounds really wonderful."
