Jimmy Brown - 8th Apr 2015

Will Young is back with his heavily Motown-influenced Love Revolution - and reminding everyone what a standout music video performer he is in the highly entertaining video by Chino Moya. 

Powered by the wonderfully inventive art direction and styling that marked out his video St Vincent's Digital Witness, Chino gives Will the chance to play a character with murky depths, and comic potential. He's the creepy marketing director of faceless cleaning products who's manic enthusiasm takes on quasi-religious overtones. 

Chino has hailed Will's acting chops - see below - and it certainly looks like he's taking his on-screen performing to the next level. Maybe it's all down to the beard...

CHINO MOYA:

"It was great working with someone who wanted to push the idea as far as me, especially when the track initially came in with a very open brief.

"Will is a great actor and that made the experience of making a music video with him completely different. He really got into the character and he did it amazingly well."
