“Millennium” is a song by English singer Robbie Williams from his 1998 album I’ve Been Expecting You. On September 7, 1998, it was released as the album’s first track which became Williams’ first single to top the UK Singles Chart. The song also received extensive airplay in the United States and Canada, where it was the lead single from Williams’ 1999 compilation album, The Ego Has Landed.
The song borrows heavily from the musical arrangement of John Barry‘s “You Only Live Twice”, the title track of the 1967 James Bond film of the same name, said to be one of Williams’ favourite James Bond movies. However, it is a re-recording in a slightly different key instead of a direct sample for reasons of cost.
