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

The euphoric track is the first single taken from Will’s forthcoming ninth studio album, “Light  It Up”, which is out on 9 August. 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. He will be visiting New Brighton’s Floral Pavilion on October 9th.

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.” 

Channeling 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 said:

“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.” 

“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 – 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 has 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”).
