Will Young's FREE song.
This is not a drill! If you have access to Amazon UK, you can now download a FREE, non-album track from Will Young. The Way That I See is a discotastic throw-down with a shimmering 30 second bridge that's far more elegant than the rest of the Pascal Gabriel-penned track.

If that is a cast-off, what will the rest of the 12-song Echoes sound like? Music Week just did a piece on the project, which was produced by Richard X, though he did not do the writing. Will has a long history of producing solid b-sides/rarities. Among his best songs are My Needs, Easy, Gonna Get It This Time, Don't Look Down and the Bond-worthy masterwork, This Is Who I Am.

UPDATE: You can now hear short samples of all album tracks on Amazon. First thoughts: standouts are I Just Want A Lover, Runaway, and Losing Myself. Come On reminds me of a slicked up version of the Von Bondies track used on Rescue Me.Which was true of the original version recorded by Kish Mauve.
