It’s been a while since we’ve heard new music from Will Young.
His last album ‘85% Proof’ was released in 2015, and since then the pop star had publicly announced his retirement from music. Fortunately for us, the singer hasn’t been able to stick to his promise.
Returning today with ‘All The Songs’, the lead single from his forthcoming eighth album ‘Lexicon’, it’s a long-awaited and much-appreciated return to form.
Speaking of the track, Will Young said: “I always say that there’s no point in doing it if it’s not joyous. That’s been my motto: do it the way you want to do it.”
The music video for the dance-infused track, shot by renown photographer Rankin, sees Young take on a number of different characters while getting a little provocative and taking off his clothes. From then on, it’s safe to say things get a little bit steamy.
The upcoming album, his first release on independent label Cooking Vinyl, has been teased as a continuation of sorts of his 2011 album ‘Echoes’, which featured production from Richard X, Jim Eliot and Mima Stilwell – all of who return for ‘Lexicon’.
‘Lexicon’ will also feature production and songwriting from Eg White (Adele, Florence + The Machine), Boy Matthews (ZAYN, Duke Dumont), Danny Shah (David Guetta, Kylie Minogue) and Tom Walker.
