Multi-award-winning British pop star and actor Will Young is back with a new single today. ‘Falling Deep’ is out now via BMG

The euphoric track is the first single taken from Will’s forthcoming ninth studio album, “Light It Up”, which is out on 9 August 2024. Pre-order for the album is now available HERE.

To celebrate the new album, Will is embarking on his most intimate tour yet – taking shape as an up close and personal evening of acoustic performances, stories and conversation. The 50-date UK tour will kick off in September through to November. General on-sale begins on 26 April – visit the website for more details. About the tour, Young says: “I’m very excited to be going to a lot of places I haven’t been. I wanted to go to smaller venues so I could properly get around the country rather than just playing the big cities.”

Channelling the nostalgia of ‘80s pop with a modern, soulful touch; ‘Falling Deep’ sits somewhere between The Police and The Weeknd. The song is written and produced by renowned pop hitmakers PhD (who have worked with Kylie), with GRAMMY-winning songwriter David Brook (OneRepublic & Galantis) and Fraser Churchill (Charlie Puth). ‘Falling Deep’ speaks to the sweet surrender of giving into a new experience, however dangerous or out of control it makes you feel. It is the perfect introduction to Will’s first album of originals in five years.

Will says: “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.”

‘Falling Deep’ is brought to life by a vibrant music video with nods to the classic, musicals-like chorus line. Directed by Samuel Douek (who has worked with Anne-Marie, Tom Walker and Mabel); it features an ensemble of dancers, all around Will’s age. Watch HERE.

He said: “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”.

The forthcoming album “Light It Up” – out on 9 August 2024 – is Will Young’s return to “joyous pop”. The 10-track collection sees the acclaimed singer-songwriter team up with new collaborators, pHD, the Scandinavian pop production/writing duo who have worked with Little Mix. He also reunites with Andy Cato of Groove Armada and long-term writing partners Jim and Mima Elliot (who worked on Will’s defining album, “Echoes”).

He said: “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.”
