Product Description

Product Description

It’s been nearly two years since the release of Will Young’s critically acclaimed and five times platinum selling album, ‘Friday’s Child’. Since then, Will’s solo career has seen him turn from a young apprentice into one of the UK’s most successful solo male artists. Returning as focused, driven and enthusiastic as he’s ever been, Will is set to release his eagerly awaited third album, ‘Keep On’, on 21 November 2005 through SonyBMG. Over the past few years, Will has emerged as an accomplished songwriter and vocalist whilst captivating fans and playing sell-out shows on two tours and at festival dates throughout the UK. Fast forward to 2005, and Will’s been in the studio working with long-time producer/collaborator Steve Lipson (whose credits include Annie Lennox and the Pet Shop Boys) to create an album that highlights how much his sound and style has matured. Co-writing over half of the album Will has also worked closely with an established team of songwriters including Nitin Sawhney, Karen Poole (Kylie), Jamie Hartmann (Joss Stone) and Robin Thicke (Usher). ‘Switch It On’ is the first single to be taken from the album and it’s packed with a sophisticated mix of fervent rhythms and attitude. A rich clash of guitars, harmonica and razor-sharp drums married with Will’s soulful vocals show him pushing the boundaries whilst still creating a track in his own, inimitable style. Things slow down a little for ‘All Time Love’, an elegant and classic ballad that picks up from where the number one hit ‘Leave Right Now’ left off. Stripped right back, ‘All Time Love’ is a spellbinding and magical song that could easily become a modern standard and is the second single due for release in February 2006. ‘Keep On’ is testament to Will’s dedication and creative development, and is just the beginning of the next chapter in one of the UK’s most exciting solo music careers.

BBC Review

What a relief: a perfect pop album. In Keep on, Will Young continues in his quest to veer as far away from the slushy cover TV ballads, and onto critical acclaim. Co-writing most songs, reflective, non-naff, lyrics are backed by instrumentation reminiscent of Stevie Wonder, (hear toe-tapper "Happiness") wrapped in the warm production of Steve Lipson.

Ultimately, Will's thin voice will never be the easiest listen, but he can be forgiven, since he sings so well, and so impassioned. The album falls into two genres: beautiful lush torch ballads, like "Who am I", "All Time Love" and "Save Yourself", whilst stand out tracks "Madness", "Keep it on" and "All I Want" are driven funky little numbers. If you've never had time for TV talent contest winners, here make an exception - it's the single proof that sometimes, these shows actually work to give us, the public, what we really need. --Lucy Davies

This is a brilliant third album. His albums are getting more and more mature and far from the poppy stuff he was expected to push out after pop idol. I think many people are genuinely surprised how good and individual he has become. All the songs are different and he not only has a soully character to his voice he sings with soul too. Home, Ain't such a bad place to be, Think About it and Think it over are particulary brilliant.Will will be there in years to come with the Madonnas, Robbies and Georges of the world as he is a one off.

This album contains Will's best work to date. It is energetic, mature,honest and lyrically stunning. It has everything you could imagine - motivating tracks in Keep On, Think it Over and Think About it. It has the exciting lead single Switch it On, alongside the funky masterpiece 'Ain't Such a Bad Place to Be' - both of which have a loudness and attitude that is unrivalled by anything else in the charts at the moment. There is plenty to think about on this album - there is not a single 'filler' on there. All I Want is very different to any of Will's previous work, serving to show other dimensions to his stunning vocal range. Intermingled with the upbeat tracks, are some truly beautiful ballads and intimate lyrics. All Time Love is haunting and the simple melody allows the beautiful vocals to really shine through, and let you understand what the song is all about. Save Yourself is pleading and slightly despairing, while Who Am I is a totally modern romantic track
which is ultimately positive. In the middle of the album is the summery 'Happiness' which is uplifting and light hearted. Less light hearted, but lyrically fascinating is 'Madness' which is performed calmly but you get the impression there is a frustration and anger behind it - a genius piece of work. The closing track of the album, Home, is arguably the best song that he has written or performed to date. It's not an overstatement to say it is a classic. The whole piece is moving, dark and totally original. It is demanding to listen to and there's no cosy finish to the piece - and that makes you want to listen to it all over again. Keep On is an inspirational adventure - there isn't one style to describe it - and that, along with beautiful vocals, fantastic and raw musical arrangements, and intelligent lyrics, is the attraction in this 3rd album from the multi talented Mr Young.

Got this as I liked the singles Switch it on, All time love and Who am I. It's worth getting for those tracks, which are excellent. Keep On is also a good track. The rest is worth a listen. It's a well made album and most people should find at least half a dozen tracks they like on it.

I've had a sneak preview of this album and was very impressed. There's not a bad song on the album, which is fresh, imspired and very diverse. If you like the current single Switch It On, have a listen to Keep On, Think About It and All I Want; they all have a similar hard edged sound with a funky, electro feel to them.
For the more traditional listeners there are some stonking ballads, such as Who Am I and All Time Love, which is predicted to be the next single, released just in time for Valentines Day.
Personally, the stand out track for me is Home. I believe this was written by Mr Young and Nitin Sawhney, and it's a very brave move. The lyrics are painfully honest, about a love affair that had to end, but the composition is like nothing I've heard before. There's a floaty ethnic influence, mixed in with celtic pipes and a clear, haunting vocal. Worth the price of the album for this song alone, I'd say!
If you've always thought you'd rather eat your right arm than listen to a Will Young album, give this one a try, you might just change your mind!

One can track Will Young's progress from a fresh-faced young pop idol into a fully-fledged musician through his albums; 'Keep On' marks his transition into a mature young man. It is his most ambitious to date, with the heavy rock of 'Switch It On', almost 80s 'Keep On', laidback pop of 'Think it Over' and the beautiful haunting melody of 'All Time Love'. Lovers of pure pop may find this album a little harder to enjoy but listen to it several times and allow it to grow on you; it really is worth it. Will Young is a sticker, and every release from him goes further to he's not just a pretty face.

Fridays Child was one of my favourite albums of the last 2 years and I was just a bit concerned that Will could live up to it with his 3rd release. I needn't have worried because Keep On is far better!!!!
Opening track Keep On is a great opener, all electro beats and pulsing rhythm. The song builds and builds, and is one of my favourites on the album. Other highlights are stunning stripped down ballad All Time Love, Who Am I (a ballad in the Leave Right Now style and written by Eg White who also wrote Leave Right Now), All I Want - a track which brings to mind the 1970's psychadelic era and which is arguably the most accomplished track on the whole album, and beautiful album closer Home, written with the genius that is Nitin Sawhney, a gorgeous atmospheric and totally beautiful song.
One track out of 12 that I'm not so keen on, and that's not bad going.
Will's developing his own unique style which is light years away from the reality-TV fodder he was given to record at the start of his career. This album proves that he is a huge talent with a long life-span. I can't see how anyone who loves music could fail to be impressed with Keep On!
