Multi-platinum-selling vocalist Will Young is returning to Blackpool with his latest tour.

The 23 date trek – which visits Blackpool Opera House on Monday, November 7 – is to promote his new album Echoes which is released on August 22.

The first single from it is Jealousy which will be released on Sunday August 21.

Coming on the 10th anniversary of Will’s first audition for Pop Idol Echoes is the follow up to his platinum selling Hits collection and is his fifth studio album in a career notching over eight million sales so far. 

With Echoes Will has sidestepped some of his traditional sounds to move more into electronic music, making an album pulsing with the undercurrents of the dance-floor.

“I had to learn to undo my musical muscle memory to allow space into the music,” he said.

Will has written all but one song on Echoes along with a personally assembled roll call of collaborators. 

Prior to recording his new album Will guest starred in the 2011 TV drama Bedlam. He also ran this year’s London Marathon in aid of the Catch 22 charity having spent the last year fitting in training around the writing of the album.

Will will be performing his new material along with favourites from his past albums. Tickets go on sale at 9am tomorrow priced £35 each from the box office (0844 856 1111) and www.blackpoollive.com
