They’re Loving Lions Instead…

Robbie Williams and Russell Brand

Robbie Williams and Russell Brand have paired for a duet covering the classic footballer’s anthem ‘Three Lions’ for the World Cup this year.

The track is set to be released on Monday and is backed by a full orchestra of singers from the Official England Supporters Club. However in this version, rather than the original chants ‘It’s coming home’, the intro has been covered by soprano Olivia Safe.

Russell told the Sun: ‘I was embarrassed by how emotional I felt singing this song. I nearly cried.

‘It took me back to Euro ’96 – Spice Boys, dentist’s chairs and Gazza’s last hurrah. It’s the only good England song and I look forward to singing it as we crash out on penalties. Then I’ll be crying.’

I have a feeling the video for this version may be one to watch out for!
