Hot Video Alert: Will Young - Jealousy

"Jealousy" is hands down my favorite Will Young song to date. There's nothing about this song that I don't like. It's absolute perfection. From Young's tender vocal delivery, to the driving beats provided by producer Richard X, "Jealousy" is an electropop masterpiece through and through. Unlike many truly ACE songs, the complementary video for "Jealousy" is equally as perfect. Directed by Diamond Dogs (Olly Williams and Phil Sansom) (The Hoosiers, Rumblestrips) "Jealousy" tells the story of impossible love. Will Young portrays a young trapezist who's heart belongs to a fellow trapeze artist. As he follows the young guy around looking all forlorn and depressed, we soon learn the reason for his sadness...he's in love with someone else. This stunning video serves as the perfect counterpart to an already perfect musical specimen. 

I absolutely LOVE where Will Young is headed, musically speaking.  I think as a young artist, you've got quite a few chances to refine your sound and grow as a musician and at the age of 32, Will Young certainly has grown.  When Young's Groove Armada collaboration, "History" was released I started to get excited.  There had been rumblings around rumorville that Will was working on a more dance-pop sounding record, however aside from a few obligatory dance remixes there was nothing to show for those rumors.  Enter "History" and all of my wishin' & hopin' suddenly became a reality.  "Jealousy" appears to be a continuation of that electro sound that Young experimented with on "History."  According to Young in an interview on, this new sound is something he'd been wanting to do for a while.
"My music has evolved a fair bit and I would say this is an electro-pop album. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for around six years and this felt like the right time to change musical direction. The music still retains an essence of me so it doesn’t feel like I’ve done something dishonest." {SOURCE}
"Jealousy" was co-written by Young and UK electro duo Kish Mauve (Kylie Minogue - "2 Hearts," "All The Lovers") and produced by Richard X (Róisín Murphy, Sophie Ellis-Bextor), who consequently produced Young's entire fifth studio album, entitled Echoes. Serving alongside the talented Mr. Young we have an impressive array of talented songwriters including Fred Falke, Andy Cato (Groove Armada), Richard Stannard, Kish Mauve, the Sound of Arrows, and Pascal Gabriel. Echoes is due out in the UK on August 22nd and is preceded by the release of "Jealousy" on the 21st.  Check out this video of Young performing the song live for the first time on Alan Carr: Chatty Man and check out the stunning video below (U.S. fans you can watch it HERE).
