Will Young is making a musical comeback with a brand new album.

The 'Leave Right Now' singer has announced that we will return to music, despite previously hinting he was retiring from the industry.

In December, Will said he was putting his music career on hold while focusing on writing, acting and his podcast Homosapians.

He said at the time: "I could definitely see myself moving to Cornwall full-time and becoming a therapist."

However, he's now back in the studio, recording a follow-up to his fifth album Echoes, which topped the album chart in 2011.

He posted a countryside view from a recording studio, with the caption: "View from studio album number 7! Echoes 2.

"Writing with my pals who I am ever thankful Jo Mc put me in touch with . I know she’s watching and dancing !"

Will Young has scored four number one albums since winning Pop Idol in 2002. His most recent album was 2015's number one 85% Proof.
