I’d been hearing about the Will Young/Groove Armada collaboration for a while before Groove Armada’s new album, Black Light was finally released. THIS is the kind of music Mr. Young should be putting out. His voice is just so well suited to this style. FLAWLESS. The song is called “History” and you can see Young performing it live on Jonathan Ross’ show on BBC 1 below. If this isn’t a single from Black Light I’ll be very disappointed. The fact that it’s being performed live and promoted is a good sign, right?
Young confirmed last year that he’s working on a dance album, collaborating with the likes of Superbass as well as Groove Armada and Gregg Alexander. In addition to the dance album, Young is also at work on an album of cover songs by playwright/composer/director/actor/singer Noel Coward.
Young will be co-headlining with Bananarama at this year’s Osborne House Summer Concerts on The Isle of Wight. Young will be performing on Saturday July 31st, and Bananarama the following Sunday. You can get tickets now by clicking HERE.
