Will Young has announced details of his new album 'Echoes'.

The former Pop Idol winner's new LP is released on August 22 and will be preceded a day earlier (August 21) by the single 'Jealously'.

The album has been produced by Richard X, who Young discovered after listening to Steve Mason's Richard X-produced album 'Boys Outside'.

Collaborators on the album include Andy Cato of Groove Armada and Pascal Gabriel of Ladyhawke.
