Hot off the back of a sold-out UK tour, and Number One platinum album, Will Young has announced a tour of nation’s forests in 2012.
In the ten years since winning Pop Idol, Will Young has sold over 9 million records and crafted some of the deftest British music of his era. A succession of hits including ‘Jealousy’, ‘Leave Right Now’, ‘Don’t Let Me Down / You and I’, ‘Light My Fire’, ‘All Time Love’, ‘Who Am I’ and ‘Changes’ from multi-platinum albums like ‘From Now On’, ‘Friday’s Child’ and ‘Keep On’ has ensured a chart presence across the whole decade.
This year the release of Will Young’s fifth studio album, ‘Echoes’ sees his musical career develop further. The album, produced by Richard X, entered the charts at No 1 and has sold over 300,000 copies in the UK so far. The first single from the album ‘Jealousy’ has been a top five chart and airplay smash, Will’s most successful single in recent years. Grazia called it ‘the best song of the year’. Will has also recently had his own ITV Saturday Night Special which drew over 5 million viewers, and he has delivered fantastic live performances on a wide range of TV shows from Jonathan Ross to Strictly Come Dancing.
Commenting on the tour, Will Young said, “The forest gigs have a great reputation for their atmosphere so I’m really looking forward to performing my songs in such unique settings.”
