As the winner of the very first Pop Idol (the original American Idol, before Kelly Clarkson for you Americans not in the know), Will Young was not really on our radar until two seismic events took place. First, he contributed vocals to the Groove Armada track, History, one of our favorites tracks last year and secondly, he enlisted Richard X (Annie, The Sound of Arrows, Mirrors, Saint Etienne) to produce his new album, from which Jealousy, is the first single. The track moves Will away from the saccharine of his idol days into the electronic/dance realm, and is a beautiful song about desire and unrequited love (we’ve all been there). We love the video, ridiculous premise and all, which finds Will performing in a circus act?! and longing after another male aerialist, who in turn, seems to be torn between him and his girlfriend aerialist. Oh what a web Will weaves.
