Off the back of his recent fourth No.1 UK album '85 Proof' and coinciding Love Revolution tour, Will Young announces a brand new EP, entitled 'Summer Covers', released via Pledge Music this August 26th.
A euphoric, eclectic mix of fan favourite covers that range from Joni Mitchell to The Buzzcocks, 'Summer Covers' was recorded live in Dean Street Studios with the same band line-up from his jazz residency at legendary British jazz venue, 606 Club. The first time they've ever been released to fans, 'Summer Covers' is a mix of heartfelt covers that have not only served as a source of personal inspiration to Will, but have also become fan-favourite staples in his memorable live sets over the years.
Speaking on the EP, Will says "I really wanted to record some of my many covers I have done over the years, especially following a jazz residency at the 606 Club a few years ago. I had an amazing experience in the studio with an incredible bunch of musicians, recording these tracks live to create this EP. These are just a few songs that say and do something to me, and I hope they do for others too."
2015 was a momentous year that saw the singer explode back into the consciousness of the British public. From scoring his fourth No. 1 album with '85% Proof', embarking on the sold-out nation-wide 'Love Revolution' tour last autumn, filtering his passion for social activism via his campaigning for the WWF and the boldly-outspoken video for single 'Brave Man' to appearing on Celebrity Great British Bake-Off, Will continued to solidify his status as one of Britain's most beloved icons.
With a string of live dates that sees him bring his energetic live sets across the country this summer, an ambassadorship for BBC Music Day 2016, and the release of 'Summer Covers', 2016 is already shaping up to be another incredible year for the star.
'Summer Covers' will be released via Pledge Music on 26th August, with the instant grat track 'Amy' available to download instantly. 'Amy' will be available via iTunes 16th of July.
