Robbie Williams splits from EMI record label

Friday October 21, 2011

Robbie Williams has split from his long-term record label EMI, which has been behind his entire solo career.

He has walked away from the company to join rivals Universal.

The singer is already familiar with the label as they are the home of Take That.

He was part of the band when they released their reunion album Progress with Universal last year.

Though, the Angels star is now focusing on his solo career again. 

Of his move to Universal, Robbie said:

"I'm really thrilled to be joining the Universal family at what I think is the most exciting time in my career."

The star is currently working on his ninth solo album, which is set to be released next autumn.
