Will Young: "Echoes Is Probably My Best Record"
EXCLUSIVE | We find out more about Will's brand new album here...
Will Younghas exclusively spoken to Groove Armada's last record called Annie Lennox to Grace Jones and Whitney Houston. He’s a great friend of mine, he’s like a second dad - so to move away to a new producer was scary but Richard has been brilliant."
Speaking of what his fans can expect from Echoes, Will went on to explain: "I think the whole record is a different sound but what I’m really pleased about is when you evolve, it doesn’t feel like it’s gone too far. Even with the single, Jealousy it’s a very different sound for me but it still feels right."
The 32-year old continued: "It doesn’t feel like I'm trying to be anyone else. I don’t think there will be anything on the record that people would think 'that’s a bit try hard' but there are some quite different songs."
As for the positive reaction his new material has received, an overwhelmed Young stated: "I have got an impression that people are enjoying it and I can tell it from my friends. If they don’t like it, they just don’t comment but they're all being quite nice about it."
"It feels great because I've spent so long on it, it has been a really long project so it would be really disappointing if I was just completely crazy and thought it was good but it wasn’t."
He added: "I feel like this is a good record, this is probably my best record and that’s a really good place to be in. If you can still get that respect, then I think that's the important thing isn’t it?"
