Will Young 'driven crazy' by love

Will Young, who has just released a new album, thinks it's unrealistic to create a record full of entirely "happy" songs. 

The 'Evergreen' singer thinks it would be an unrealistic reflection of human emotion if every track he wrote was a positive one and told Attitude magazine: 

"Two of the saddest songs on this album were written after I bumped into someone I used to see, which sent me into a spin."

"It was like a punch in the stomach. I think you need that. I don't think I'll ever write an entirely happy record."

His new offering, 'Echoes', will be unveiled on August 22 and he has already premiered its first single, 'Jealousy'. He added that "matters of the heart" drive him to act irrationally:

"I'm pretty good with most things except relationships. When it comes to matters of the heart I do go a bit potty."

"I think I'm getting better with age but I still analyse the texts - what does one kiss mean and all that stuff."
