Will Young announces the release of his brand new single ‘Thank You’ to be released through Island Records on July 24th 2015. ‘Thank You’ is the second single to be taken from Will’s critically acclaimed new album ‘85% Proof’ which went straight in at Number One on the UK Official Album Chart this month, his fourth Number One album.
‘Thank You’, written by Will with Jim Eliot, is one of Will’s greatest musical accomplishments so far and comes complete with one of the best final lines in a song you are likely to hear this year! Stay tuned to the album version to hear it in full effect?
‘Thank You’ also comes with a stunningly choreographed and captivating video shot in the historic Porchester Baths in London. ?Watch the video from Tuesday 16th June at http://www.vevo.com/artist/will-young
Will has also confirmed a UK nationwide tour to take place during October and November 2015.
‘The Love Revolution Tour’, Will’s first tour in four years, starts in York on 29th October and runs across the UK & Ireland finishing in London at the Hammersmith Apollo on 29th November. Tickets are available from: http://www.livenation.co.uk/artist/will-young-tickets
‘85% Proof’ is the sixth album from the multi-million selling Brit Award winning singer-songwriter and represents his most accomplished work to date. The record is an eclectic, hugely confident and startlingly human record which Clash described as ‘The most deliciously instinctive and relentlessly endearing pop music you’ll hear this year. A masterclass in delivering a mature pop record’. Meanwhile The Sun called the album ‘pure class’ and The Guardian said it was‘A reminder of how good Young can be.’
‘85% Proof’ follows up Will’s No 1 album ‘Echoes’ released in 2011 which has sold over half a million copies. In the intervening years Will moved back to theatre staring as The Emcee in Cabaret (for which he was nominated for an Olivier Award); presented an ITV documentary on surrealist artist Magritte; filtered his passion for politics via blogs for the likes of Huffington Post; wrote a best-selling biography and fronted a campaign for Stonewall. He also started teaching and mentoring other singer-songwriters.
Produced by previous collaborator Jim Eliot (Mikky Ekko, Ellie Goulding), ‘85% Proof’ is a creative?reflection of Will’s extracurricular activities post-Echoes and his most personal/honest songwriting to date. Writing and recording for the new record also coincided with a move to a brand new label, Island Records.
