Will Young writes dance album with Groove Armada

Former 'Pop Idol' winner plans double album with the dance giants

Will Young is reportedly working on a dance album in collaboration with Groove Armada.

The singer has said that he hopes to release the album in 2009, reports the Daily Record.

“I’ve written so many dance songs, loads with the guys from Groove Armada,” he said, “but it’s just finding the avenue to get them out.

“I’d like to do a double album – one side of chill-out songs, the other with more upbeat house songs. I think I’m going to put it out next summer and it’ll be interesting to see how people react.”

Young added that he was cautious about the change of musical direction.

“I’m not afraid of trying different things,” he said, “but I am slightly wary because people will say, ‘Who does he think he is?'”
