Swing When You're Winning is a swing cover album by English singer-songwriter Robbie Williams, and his fourth studio album overall. It was released in the United Kingdom on 19 November 2001 and peaked at number one on the UK Albums Chart. The album's title is a play on Williams' previous album Sing When You're Winning. In 2013, Williams returned to swing for his tenth studio album Swings Both Ways

Album · 2003 · 14 Songs. Let Robbie entertain with his suave take on American swing classics. A bold project starts as such with "I Will Talk and Hollywood Will Listen" and his Mr Bojangles captures the Rat Pack’s reverie and mischief. Williams receives help from some starry friends, too: Nicole Kidman drops in to exchange sweet nothings for a thoroughly charming "Somethin' Stupid", while Rupert Everett is a revelation on the bluesy duet "They Can't Take That Away From Me". Swing When You're Winning Robbie Williams.

Still, Williams' tribute to the great American songbook is a surprisingly natural fit with its intended target: '50s trad-pop patriarchs like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.

Ultimately, though, ‘Swing When You’re Winning’ is a consumer artefact made for Christmas Day biliousness, the point in between the end of the Beano annual and the start of Morecambe & Wise. It mistakes celebrity for entertainment, cabaret for class. It’s Geri Halliwell as opposed to Ava Gardner, Rupert Everett as opposed to Sammy and Dean. Somethin’ stupid? You’ve got it. Victoria Segal. The Big Read – The Specials and Saffiyah Khan: What we said has reached people – and that’s the only important thing.

Robbie Williams, one of pop music’s most entertaining and talented (A word I use hesitantly) male pop artists of the past decade has surprisingly swung in a complete 360 degree spin quite literally with his release of Swing When You’re Winning, an album based on jazz covers and an original composition.
