Will also confirms a huge 21 date UK tour, kicking off this October and heading to York Barbican on Sunday 20th October 2019, with tickets going on sale at 9am on Friday 29th March 2019.
An upbeat, piano-led, dancefloor-tilted heartbreak anthem, ‘All The Songs’ serves as the perfect introduction to an album built around the joy of pop music, "I always say that there's no point in doing it if it's not joyous.

The joyfulness around the making of Lexicon lit a real spark of creativity for Young and in some ways the album provides a sense of new beginnings, his first release on the independent label Cooking Vinyl has given Young a sense of liberation and freedom; Lexicon was created partly by reuniting with the team behind his 2011 album Echoes, including producers and songwriters Richard X, Jim Eliot and Mima Stilwell, and also by teaming up with the likes of Eg White (Adele, Florence + The Machine), amazing new talent Boy Matthews (ZAYN, Duke Dumont), Danny Shah (David Guetta, Kylie Minogue) and Tom Walker.

The 40 year old South London local hasn’t spent the time between albums twiddling his thumbs.
Young has been working as an active and vocal campaigner for the LGBTQ movement, including the promotion of all inclusive children’s books on Cbeebies, the second season of his hugely popular LGBT podcast Homo Sapiens, that he co-created and co-presents with filmmaker and friend Chris Sweeney is now out and he’s already booked live dates across the summer, playing Tom Kerridge’s Pub In The Park events, a celebration of the best food and music the country has to offer, as well as at Gloucestershire's Party at The Castle and Leicester Racecourse.
Will Young has spent the last two decades at the forefront of pop after bursting onto the scene in 2002. His expansive career has culminated in four #1 and two #2 chart topping albums, two BRIT Awards and four UK number one singles.
