The 'Troublemaker' singer and 'Not Fair' star have both worked on Robbie's new swing record.

Olly Murs and Lily Allen have spoken about their excitement about collaborating with Robbie William on the 'Candy' singer's new album 'Swings Both Ways'.

The pair are just some of the many guest artist to feature on the new record, Robbie's second Swing release after 'Swing When You're Winning', and both stars have revealed how their team-ups came about.

'Right Place Right Time' star Olly toured with Robbie on his 'Take The Crown' stadium tour earlier this year and they have recorded a cover of 'I Wanna Be Like You', and Olly says it felt very natural to record something after the pair spent so much time together.

"I absolutely loved working with Rob on this album," Olly said, of the pair's collaboration. "After touring Europe with him this year it seemed only right that we record something together, and 'I Wanna Be Like You' is such a classic sing-a-long tune.

"It's always brilliant when you get to work with your mates," the 'Troublemaker' singer added.

Lily Allen was also excited to record with Robbie and says she couldn't resist when he asked her to jump on a cover of 'Dream A Little Dream'.

"'Dream A Little Dream' is one of my favourite songs of all time so I didn't hesitate when Robbie asked me if I'd like to duet with him on it," the 'Not Fair' singer revealed. "I was a bit nervous when we recorded it, especially when I asked him what he wanted me to do and he said something like 'just be you'.

"But I'm really happy with it and think we do justice to a classic song," Lily added.

Robbie Williams releases new album 'Swings Both Ways' on 18th November.
