By Will Young
I've always kind of liked Will Young's tracks, mostly the upbeat ones such as 'Your Game', 'Switch It On' and the recent 'Grace'. I'm not such a fan of the slower ones he brings out. His voice is great but his energy in the up-tempo tracks is far paramount. This third single from his current album of the same name will be his last physical release, as everyone is now going digital. I'm not totally bowled over by it. It feels more like an album track than a single to take on the charts with, but no doubt it'll be a success.
You can't take away anything from Mr Young. A 2008 UK tour playing to over 50,000 screaming fans, a glorious return to reality TV as he performed on the X Factor - propelling his album up the charts, turning it into his fourth consecutive platinum album -and then finally, on New Year's Eve, joining Elton John at the O2 arena.
'Let It Go' will be released with exclusive tracks recorded at London's Cadogan Hall, including Will's cover of 'Help Me' by Joni Mitchell. Constantly on the go, continuously changing his sound and delivering great performances, Will Young is already booked in to have some political chats on BBC One's Question Time, and in March will be the subject of a Southbank special. 'Let It Go' will no doubt rocket up the charts and give him more recognition that he deserves, I just don't think this is as great as his other recent outings.
