Album of the week: Will Young “Echoes”


He is one of Britain`s best singers and now almost 10 years in the business. Singer and actor Will Young released his brand new album “Echoes” this week.

Will Young just released his fifth studio album called “Echoes” and it looks he will enter the UK album charts next weekend at number 1 or number 2. It`s almost 10 years ago he started his career as the first winner of the casting show “Pop Idol” and has been very successful since then. Besides his music he also stepped into the movie biz and played a teacher in the great series “Skins” and a role in “Lady Henderson presents”.

The new album starts with the great single “Jealousy” and features 13 excellent pop tracks. It was a good choice to team up with producer and writer Richard X, who did work with Kylie, Saint Etienne or Goldfrapp, cos he put a more modern sound to Will`s new album.

There is only one word for this album and his voice: EXCELLENT! Listen to up-tempo tracks like “Lie Next To Me”, “Runaway”, “Personal Thunder”, my favourite “Hearts on Fire” and wonderful ballads like “Outsider” and “Silent Valentine”.  A perfect album for late summer days to come! It`s a shame he never really made it abroad, this finally has to be changed!!

Will is touring the UK in October and November 2011.
