Will Young has our attention
Will Young has always been adept at creating compelling pop and producing watchable music videos, but he’s taken his talents to the next level with his latest – All The Songs.
A break-up song filled with heartache, All The Songs is very good pop music. The video isn’t particularly elaborate, but it gives Young an opportunity to try on some different characters, to have some fun in the dressing-up box, and to strip it all off and show the world that he is definitely getting better with age.
Originally from Wokingham in England, Will Young came to the world’s attention in 2002, when he won Pop Idol – a television singing contest in the UK.
Young released his debut album – From Now On – in 2002, soon after winning Pop Idol. Since then, he’s been consistently releasing music and Lexicon – from which All The Songs is the first single – will be Young’s seventh studio album.
