Robbie Williams has confirmed plans to release a new solo album as part of his new record deal.

The singer announced that he will unveil his ninth studio LP next autumn after signing a deal with Universal Music.

Williams was previously signed to major label EMI, but his contract with the company ended following the release of 2009's Reality Killed The Video Star.

Confirming the move on his official blog, Williams explained: "I'm really thrilled to be joining the Universal family at what I think is the most exciting time in my career."

Universal Music Group Chairman/CEO Lucian Grainge said: "What a thrill this announcement is. To be working with Robbie and his team, and to have the opportunity to support this incredible stage of his career, makes life so exciting."

Universal Music UK chairman and CEO David Joseph added: "Having had the chance to listen to the music I've no doubt that Robbie is currently at his most creatively inspired. We are about to witness something very special."

Williams is currently recording the project in his own studio in Los Angeles and the record will be issued worldwide through Universal Music.

The 37-year-old has sold over 60 million albums throughout his career and has won more Brit Awards than any other artist in history.
