Multi-award-winning British pop star and actor Will Young is back with a new single today 18th April 2024. ‘Falling Deep’ is out now via BMG – listen HERE.

The euphoric track is the first single taken from Will’s forthcoming ninth studio album, “Light It Up”, which is out on 9 August. 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.

About the tour, Will 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 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.”
