Robbie Williams is the latest artist to give away his music through a tie-in with a U.K. national newspaper.

The Oct. 11 issue of the weekly Mail on Sunday newspaper will contain a free Williams compilation titled "Songbook." The album features 12 songs in live or studio versions, including hits such as "Angels," "Let Me Entertain You" and "Feel."

The disc will also contain a downloadable widget allowing computer users online access to six 30-second clips of tracks from Williams' new album "Reality Killed the Video Star" (Virgin), due in the United Kingdom on Nov. 9. The "Completemyartist" widget also gives users access to a series of playlists of Williams' musical choices, featuring songs by Dean Martin, David Bowie, Elton John, the Pet Shop Boys, the Rolling Stones and others.

The Mail on Sunday is Britain's second most popular Sunday newspaper (behind the News of the World), with a circulation of just over 2 million in August 2009, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations.

The CD is the latest in a long line of giveaways from the publication: previous releases have included Paul McCartney's "Memory Almost Full," Prince's "Planet Earth" and Mike Oldfield's "Tubular Bells." Its release will come one day after Williams makes his much-hyped appearance as a mentor on the hugely popular TV talent show "the X-Factor" (Oct. 10).

The campaign around the launch of "Reality..." will also see Williams' concert at the BBC Electric Proms at London's Roundhouse venue on Oct. 20 broadcast live to cinemas across Europe. According to the BBC, the show will be seen on some 200 screens across the continent, with delayed screenings also scheduled for Australia (Nov. 6) and South Africa (Nov. 13).

The cinema screenings are being organized by BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the publicly funded U.K. broadcaster, together with New York City-headquartered BY Experience, a pioneer in facilitating live digital cinema events.

In a statement, BBC Worldwide head of commercial affairs for music Salim Mukaddam said: "We are very excited to be working with an artist of Robbie's calibre in order to create what is likely to be the largest live music cinematic event of its kind in Europe. The Electric Proms is now an established event on the British music calendar and BBC Worldwide is proud to be able to extend the reach of the event to music fans across around the globe."
