Will Young has more pride in his new material

Will Young has revealed that he's more proud of his music now than ever before.

The 'Leave Right Now' hitmaker explained to Stylist magazine that although he likes his previous albums, he has more respect for his new material and is genuinely "really happy to put my name to" it.

"It's amazing that I'm still around after five albums and a greatest hits compilation. I'm even more proud of my work today than I was 10 years ago. It's not that I'm not proud of my past but what I'm doing now both in music and outside of it, is stuff I'm really happy to put my name to."

He also added that his career's longevity is down to having "nerves of steel": "I am quietly competitive. You need nerves of steel to stick around in the music business."

"But I would never walk over anyone to get what I wanted. I want to feel that I've done as much as I can, because we're not here for long."
