Chart-topping British singer Will Young will road-test songs from his highly-anticipated third album with a series of intimate pub concerts.

The EVERGREEN star - hugely popular in his native UK - has decided the best way to make sure his new material is of a high quality is to return to his roots and ditch stadium gigs in favour of more low-key affairs.

Young says, "It's important to get feedback, see how songs go down.

"Pubs and clubs would be good. Or a bingo hall."
