Will Young continues to push boundaries in his music videos with this new one for Thank You directed by Nick Bartleet, who orchestrates Will through a group of interesting characters within the visually stunning setting of Porchester Baths in West London.

The drama of the piece, and emotions in Will's relationships with the men of various ages in the steam room, is acted out through choreography. And if the 'thank you' message seems at odds with the obvious pain at the heart of the song, the video delivers a proper verbal wallop at the end. Everyone should stick around to see that. 

Will Young has already commented on the video, saying: “I am so very pleased with this video for Thank You. Nick has captured beautifully the emotion of the song and encapsulated an individual narrative to create a music video unlike any other I’ve done before.”
