Will Young Releases New Album “Crying on the Bathroom Floor”: Streaming
- British singer-songwriter Will Young released his eighth studio album “Crying on the Bathroom Floor” for the first time in two years on August 6, 2021.
The album comprises of 10-track, including covers of Bat for Lashes, MUNA, Cam, Robyn, London Grammar, Lykke Li, Sky Ferreira, Solange, Everything But The Girl and Clare Maguire.
On the album, he worked with a producer Richard X, who also produced previous album “Lexicon”.
Will Young said of the album title, “'Crying on The Bathroom Floor' was destined not only to be a single but the title of the album. For me, there is humour in the album title as well as sadness. My respect for MUNA is super high – they are just the sort of exciting, authentic act that make music worth listening to. It was a privilege to put my own spin on their song as well as a privilege to work with Richard X again on production. I am looking forward to sharing the rest of the album with everyone. These are all songs written by strong, authentic and challenging, individual women that I find utterly inspiring.”
He added, “To me this is more than a traditional covers album, I really wanted to showcase some artists I admire and songs that may not be particularly well known. Crafting these arrangements with Richard X and my amazing musicians was such a labour of love over the last year.”
- Back in April, he said of the album, “After 18 years of recording and performing a lot of original material, I loved the idea of creating an album that celebrates some of the modern female artists I so admire in pop. In today's times it's so much easier and accepted to occupy other genders, ideas and explore new avenues. I wanted to understand what it might be like to sing their lyrics.”
He continued, “I wanted to work with Richard X again and create a true pop record. It's strange because I feel I have ended up with a piece of work that feels truly me, despite the songs not being written .... by me. I feel connection to the lyrics, and the stories, and the women who wrote them. The songs became my songs, the words my words for all the time I was performing. Now they are there for the next person to interpret and embody.”
