‘Brave Man’ is the fourth official single to be released of Young’s sixth number one studio album, 85% Proof.

The video follows the footsteps of a naked transgender youngster, who’s meeting all sorts of people alongside the road and experiences compassion, mockery and bullying. You can read more about the concept of the video on Will’s Facebook page here. 

Last night, Young performed his most recent single ‘Joy’ during the Strictly Come Dancing live result show.

Brave New Single choice for Will Young

Will Young unveiled the artwork and name for his new album on Instagram last night.
Will Young is set to release the video for his new single Brave Man tomorrow, October 19.

Despite its impressive album sales, the singles taken from Young’s sixth studio album ‘85% Proof’ haven’t quite left as much impact as the former Idols winner would have expected. But there’s still plenty of hope as Will has confirmed the upcoming new single, to be album opener ‘Brave Man’.

A video teaser of the Jim Eliot, Jemima Stillwell and Young co-written track was uploaded yesterday on Youtube with the announcement the full video is ready to go in premiere tomorrow, Monday October 19.

Will Young rose to fame as one of the first Idols winner franchises in 2001, and has build an impressive career with six albums to date.

The choice of the arousing orchestrated pop song as new single is bound to set the album campaign right back on track. Have a listen below:

Happy days for Will Young. The singer songwriter released his sixth studio album just a few weeks ago, with much success. 85% Proof, beat the Vaccines to the number one in the week of its release, so much much excitement in the Young camp.

Embarking on a 22-date tour later this year Young’s continuing his album campaign with the announcement of the arousing track ‘Thank You’ as his second single. The video, shot at London’s Porchester Baths and directed by Nick Bartleet (Rebecca Ferguson, Lawson, The Vamps), premiered Wednesday on the singer’s Youtube channel.

Thank You is emotionally very well captured, visually as lyrically, giving us plenty of reason to believe Thank You is set to be another glorified and successful piece of work in Will Young’s already impressive career to date. Thank you , Will Young!

For remix lovers out there, French producer Fred Falke also provided a remix for the track, which you can listen to here.

Will Young's upcoming album is going to be 100% EPIC

Will Young Like A RiverWill Young’s upcoming new album might only be entitled ‘85% Proof’ but after hearing a taster of what’s to come, we can guarantee it is 100% perfection.

Apart from Will’s current funk inspired single Love Generation, and the dark electropop ‘Like A River’ (check out the video here), the other three tracks, in the sampler, are a clear indicator Young’s ready to make his new album, an even bigger seller than Echoes.

So what can the fans expect from the three new tracks ‘Brave Man’, ‘Joy’ and ‘Thank You’?

First track, on the album, ‘Brave Man’ is an epic symphonic pop song, which just keeps building and building. Think Markus Feehily’s upcoming #1 single, but shaped and twisted by Will Young and slightly darker.

Joy e.g. has a very uplifting, anthem feel to it. Think Mika versus Band Aid versus Paul McCartney and the Beatles.

Last but not least, Thank You, actually feels a bit of a continuation to ‘Joy’ in the respect that Will is absolutely channeling his inner Paul McCartney on an absolutely beautiful percussion and violin packed production. Not to mention the incredible vocal soloist who showcases her skills towards the end of the song.

With just over a month to go, until Will’s album is to be released, we are waaaaay over the 85% Excitement to hear the full works. The full tracklisting of ‘85% Proof’ can be found here.

Will Young retells Classic Minotaur legend in Like A River Video

Will Young Like A RiverWill Young continues to promote his upcoming new studio album ‘85% Proof’ with the revelation of  brand new track, Like A River, via video.

The video, filmed in grey shades, is directed by the acclaimed filmmaker W.I.Z.  who has worked previously with Disclosure and Katy B. The story board for ‘Like a River’ is a haunting yet powerful take on the legend of the Minotaur which sees Will enter the maze himself.

Already loving the direction, Will is heading into with his album. The lead single for his album, Love Generation, is in contrast to Like A River very difficult, so it will be interesting to see what other genres we can expect and how well they are to fit with the ‘85% Proof’ theme.

Will’s new album is out May 25. Check the new video below:
