  • Will Young Announces New album “Light It Up”, Shares New Song “Falling Deep”

  • British singer-songwriter Will Young is back. He has announced his ninth studio album “Light It Up” will be released on August 9, 2024 via BMG.

    The album is his first LP in three years since the 2021 album “Crying on the Bathroom Floor” and comprises a 10-track.
    This time, he worked with Scandinavian pop production duo pHD, Andy Cato of Groove Armada, Jim and Mima Elliot on the album.

    Will Young said of the album, “I think for me it was about finally feeling more content and being able to go back to embracing joyous unashamed pop music. I really hope this is the go-to pop album for a dance, for a cry and for a celebration. I know I do all three with it.”

    From the album, he unveiled the first single called “Falling Deep” on April 18, 2024.
    The track was written by Daniel Davidsen, David Brook, Fraser Churchill, and Peter Wallevik.

    Will Young said of the song, “I'm remembering my roots of pop and completely welcoming it. The song immediately made my mind go to the late 70s and early 80s. I wanted the fun and nostalgia of that time but to modernise it, and I'm so proud of the result.”
  • The accompanying music video was directed by Samuel Douek.
    Will Young said of the video, “I wanted to work with dancers my age as I think sometimes there can be such a focus on youth in the dance world for all performers, and older performers come with such grace and wisdom. It was a fantastic day working with people my age. We all knew what a Nintendo Gameboy was and I think especially women can be overlooked as they age, so it felt very important to work with men and women for the project”.

  • Will Young embarks on “Light It Up Live 2024” in support of the album this fall. The tour kicks off at Palace Theatre in Southend on September 3 and will conclude at Cadogan Hall in London on November 26, 2024.
