~BLAH BLAH BLAH, LOOK AT ME: MY NAME’S WILL YOUNG AND I JUST RELEASED THE PERFECT VIDEO FOR THE PERFECT LEAD SINGLE FROM MY (PROBABLY) PERFECT UPCOMING FIFTH STUDIO ALBUM BUT I’M LIKE TOTES BORED RIGHT NOW SO I THINK I’LL JUST RELEASE A SONG THAT ISN’T EVEN ON MY ALBUM FOR FUNZIES JUST BECAUSE I CAN. PS: I LOOK TOTALLY FLAWLESS ON THE COVER ART, LOLOLZ.~
And that–if I had to guess–is exactly what flashed through Will Young’s mind before unleashing the completely free, completely amazing Pascal Gabriel co-penned (Rachel Stevens, Kylie Minogue) “The Way I See” onto Amazon.co.uk today.
The song is nothing short of a flawless pop gem: It sounds a bit like if you cracked open Britney‘s “Scary” and poured the bright ’80’s synthesizers into a bowl of Rachel Stevens’ Come & Get It, smoothed the mix over a lush Sophie Ellis-Bextor disco-encrusted mold and then sprinkled some sweet, sweet Will Young crooning on top to garnish.
Mmm…I’m going to be stuffing my face with this one for a while. Echoes truly cannot arrive soon enough!
Echoes will be released on August 22. (iTunes UK)
