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.
