Williams went further and added, “If you have a card show in 2022, every week every artist sounds like every artist and looks like every artist.”

He then clarified: “It’s not their fault, I’m not picking on them.”

Williams recently released a compilation album titled XXV to mark the 25th anniversary of his solo career.

The album debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, meaning Williams broke the record for most number ones by a solo act.

In addition to classic hits such as “Kids”, “Millenium” and “She’s the One”, XXV also featured a number of new songs, including ‘Lost’ and ‘Hot Fudge’.

In addition to a new album, Williams recently announced that he will be starring in a Netflix documentary about his life and career.

He told fans listening to New Zealand radio station Newstalk ZB what to expect from the documentary: “It’s going to be full of sex, drugs and mental illness. They haven’t started. I’m I’m sure it’ll be warts and -all, and I’m sure it’ll be me giving too much information about my life and my times.”

Although he has editorial control, Williams insists the film won’t sanitize him: “Most people want to do a sanitized version of themselves because they’re afraid of giving away too much of their real life. . The audience can see it and I don’t respond very well as an audience member to that, so I won’t do that.”
