Biography

If it is strange to think that Will Young began his pop journey as the first and quite the most atypical winner of the now global Pop Idol phenomenon, then keep in mind that Will was the one who stood up to Simon Cowell, one fateful Saturday evening. “What I love about that moment is that it was someone standing up for what they wanted. I didn’t realise how strongly I wanted that ... Read more in Amazon's Will Young Store

Editorial Reviews

Will Young will be releasing his brand new album 'Echoes' on the 22nd of August. The first single taken from 'Echoes' is 'Jealousy'. Releasing on the 10th anniversary of Will's first audition for Pop Idol in 2001, 'Echoes' is the follow up to his Platinum selling 'Hits' collection and is his fifth studio album in a career that has spawned over 8 million sales so far. . 'Echoes' is produced by Richard X (MIA, Kelis, Goldfrapp) who Will chose after falling in love with Steve Mason's (Beta Band) 'Boys Outside' album that Richard produced. With 'Echoes' Will has side stepped from some of his traditional sounds to move more into the world of electronic music, making an album of sophistry and gentility that pulses with the undercurrents of the dance-floor. The sweeping strings and key changes of his hit ballads have made way for synthesized melody, towards something and more controlled. 'I had to learn to undo my musical muscle memory,' he explains, 'To allow space into the music.' Will wrote all the songs on 'Echoes' along with a personally assembled roll call of collaborators including Jim Eliot & Mima Stilwell (Kylie), Andy Cato (Groove Armada) and Pascal Gabriel (Ladyhawke). 'Jealousy' is Will's first single release since the acclaimed 'History' collaboration with Groove Armada that became one of the sounds of last summer.

Will Young seems to be traveling the same route as Robbie Williams here in the USA. Nobody knows who either of them are. This new album from Will Young is fantastic. It starts with a jolt. JEALOUSY is kick-ass and the obvious choice to open this album. It starts out small and quiet then builds to a great TRIP-POP dance number. There isn't a bad song on the whole album. I JUST WANT A LOVER is another outstanding song that gets better with every listen. Actually, the whole album gets better each time you listen to it. COME ON, RUNAWAY, PERSONAL THUNDER, SAFE FROM HARM are all stand-out tracks. Will has a fantastic voice and is able to sing just about any kind of music genre there is. While listening to this album many times over you start to hear the influences Will has put into this great CD. PET SHOP BOYS, NEW ORDER, ERASURE, just to name a few. If I had one complaint it would be that I wish he would belt out a number and let us here what his voice can really do. He has done it in the past and is very capable of doing it again. But I digress, this is a fantastic album and should be heard by more than just those over in Europe. It's a pity that he isn't better known here. Seems I listen to more artist from across the "great pond" than I do artist from my own country. Give Will a listen, you might be pleasantly surprised.

I was never a fan of Will Young's voice and couldn't really get how he won Pop Idol (altho, I never saw the show because it's a Brit show), based on said voice. But with this record, I dig his voice. It goes really well with this Trip-Pop music. I pretty much dig EVERY track. It's just nice, groovy, melodic, music that is a few notches more exciting than chill out. I like chill out but that genre can put you to sleep. This album is like chill out stuff but with more beats and verve. 5 stars.

I've been a fan of Will Young for years and don't understand why he hasn't broken through in the U.S. His voice is different and really stands out on this collection of mostly dance oriented tunes. Will is known mostly for his ballads which he does so well. And this album is no exception to this: "Lie Next to Me" and "Outsider" are two fine examples of his balladry skill. What really stands out on this CD are his uptempo songs. And they REALLY stand out. Wow! From the opening song "Jealousy" the CD starts to take form with a groovy, trippy, beat that permeates throughout the whole collection. It's innovative yet somehow slightly retro at the same time. As the musical theme carries on throughout the collection, it ensures that every song on this CD is worth a listen. He even channels a little George Michael with "I Just Want a Lover". He really is an artist on the top of his form. For me, the album climaxes with one of Will's best songs to date: "Hearts on Fire". Sung like one of his famous ballads but the drums and bass line keep this track moving to a beat that provides perhaps the grooviest song on the entire collection. An incredible song, especially with his falsetto voice coming in. It really is Will at his best! Other standout tracks on this CD are "Silent Valentine", "Losing Myself" (I think we all can relate to this at times in our life), and "Safe From Harm". This CD is consistent from start to finish. And it's Will's most creative yet! Good job, Will!!

Will Young is fairly unknown in the US, but he has been around for a long time. Not many people know this and think that Kelly Clarkson is the original "Idol" winner, but Will was the first Idol winner winning "Pop Idol" in the UK before Idol came to the US.

I saw him with Kelly on American Idol in the first season and I just fell in love with his voice. This album "Ëchos" is one of his best. I personally have all of his records and you can hear him grow through his voice and it is amazing. I just hope that he will tour the US sometime soon so I get the opportunity to see him live. If you like light pop music, similar to Celine, then you will love his music.

I am surprised Will Young is not better known her in the united states. He has a clear, commercial voice that sounds terrific on the radio. Every track on this album has hit radio potential: great melodies, well crafted, artful arrangements and smooth production style that sounds both contemporary and familiar at the same time. I highly recommend this album!

I love this CD! I would pay to see him in concert here in the USA. And you are right the radio stations need to give Will some real air time!

Excellent album! I've not really loved Young's earlier work, but this album is superb. "Jealousy" and "Come On" are stellar tracks.
