The 'Different' singer says he wanted advice off everyone he saw about his latest record.
Robbie Williams has revealed he asked "all sorts" of people to give their opinion on his new album ahead of its release, including the "mail man and the dustman".
The 'Candy' singer returned with his ninth studio album 'Take The Crown' this month, and says he was so "scared" about the record's potential reception that he asked everyone he could whether they thought it was good or not.
"I've been scared, thinking this sounds great, sounds confident, sounds big," Robbie revealed to The Sun this week. "I've been having all sorts of people come in and have a listen - the mail man, the dustman, people delivering things from Amazing.
"I said, 'Come and have a listen to this. What do you think should be the first single? Is it good?'," Robbie explained. "You see, this is a really important album for me.
"Every album is important but this one definitely shows where I am in today's society and pop culture."

'Take The Crown' launched earlier this month to positive reviews and reached number one on the UK album chart, leading to the announcement of a new stadium tour for 2013.
Robbie will head up and down the UK next summer as he performs five dates across the country, starting with a show in Manchester on 19th June then playing in both Glasgow and London before heading on to Europe.
