Michael Bublé and Robbie Williams team up for swing duet

WENN

Canadian crooner Michael Bublé got into the swing of things with pop star Robbie Williams after the pair teamed up for a track on the British singer's new big band album.

The singer is working on a follow-up to his hit 2001 cover album "Swing When You're Winning," which featured renditions of "Mack the Knife," "Mr. Bojangles" and "Somethin' Stupid," which he recorded with Nicole Kidman.

Now Williams has collaborated with Bublé, who is no stranger to covers of swing classics.

The singer tells Britain's Daily Star, "I got to know Robbie through (the U.K. version of) 'The X Factor,' and I love him. The song is for his new swing album and it's so good. We had too much fun making it."

And Bublé admits he and Williams bonded over their struggles with dealing with fame, adding, "Robbie has probably been more open than I have with certain things. I'm pretty open but he's bared his demons. I have the same demons, so we talk about all the things I think about, as I don't have other people to talk to them about. It's pretty awesome."

It's too bad Robbie Williams isn't a bigger star here in the U.S. because he's a big deal in England and other parts of the world.  Maybe a duet with Buble, who's a pretty big deal everywhere, will help Robbie Williams reclaim his rightful place in the pop music world in the U.S.!!!
