Will Young will release new EP Summer Covers via Pledge Music on 26th August 2016.
The EP will feature an eclectic mix of fan favourite covers ranging from Joni Mitchell to The Buzzcocks. Summer Covers was recorded live in Dean Street Studios with the same band line-up from Young’s jazz residency at legendary British jazz venue, 606 Club.
The songs included on the EP have inspired Young and become fan favourites during his live sets over the years.
Speaking about the EP, Will says, “I really wanted to record some of my many covers I have done over the years, especially following a jazz residency at the 606 Club a few years ago. I had an amazing experience in the studio with an incredible bunch of musicians, recording these tracks live to create this EP. These are just a few songs that say and do something to me, and I hope they do for others too.”
Summer Covers is the first release from Young since his number one 2015 album 85% Proof. Young followed the album release with the sold-out Love Revolution tour.
