Paul Young is an English singer, songwriter and musician who has just turned 60.
He’s back with his first new album in 19 years!
Formerly the frontman of the short-lived bands Kat Kool & the Kool Cats, Streetband and Q-Tips, his subsequent solo success made him a teen idol.
He is famous for such hit singles as “Love of the Common People”, “Wherever I Lay My Hat”, “Come Back and Stay”, “Everytime You Go Away” and “Everything Must Change”, all reaching the top 10 of the UK Singles Chart.
Released in 1983, his debut album No Parlez, the first of three UK number one albums, turned him into a household name. In 1985 he won ‘Best British Male’ at the Brit Awards.
In July 1985, Young appeared at Live Aid held at Wembley Stadium, London, performing the Band Aid hit “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”
Since the late 1990s, Young has released very little new material, but has continued to tour in different parts of the world.
So, now in 2016 he’s back with his brand new album ‘Good Thing’. This sensational new material was born to be played Live!
