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.

Young has a clear, crisp voice, albeit a little more first tenor/second alto than I like in male singers, but it works for him. I really like how he utilizes his falsetto at times. The key thing is he can really sing! None of this trilling stuff - he nails his notes.
Echoes contains songs I've never heard before listening to it - but I'm thinking MAYBE i'd heard "Jealousy" before - American radio is a vast wasteland when it comes to singers like Young. I suppose there are a few places where you can hear real singers singing, but I've not found them in Atlanta.
The songs on this album are ALL catchy, but my personal favorites are Jealousy, I Just Want a Lover, Personal Thunder and Safe from Harm.
This is a really super album with a talented singer.
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.
