Will Young - Will Young Slams First Single

Will Young "hates" his first ever single.

The 32-year-old star released the double A-side 'Anything Is Possible' and 'Evergreen' when he won TV talent show 'Pop Idol' in 2002 but hasn't ever performed the first track lives because he dislikes it so much.

He said: "I've never done 'Anything is Possible' live. I hate it. I absolutely hate it."

The 'Come On' singer is known for his quirky music videos but admits he "can't bear" to watch back his first ones because they were so "shocking", despite having huge amounts of money spent on them.

He said: "I can't bear 'Evergreen' or 'Anything is Possible', they're absolutely shocking. And you wouldn't believe the amount of money that was spent on those videos. F**king hell! Dreadful videos. At one moment it looks like I'm in love with a tree! Dreadful. Really odd. Dreadful. No, no, no. No. But since then the track record has been pretty good actually - apart from one - but the first one was really awful."

While he never performs 'Anything is Possible', Will still plays 'Evergreen' live but enjoys experimenting with different arrangements of the track as he thinks it is "important" to continue to sing the song.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I just thought, let's do something a bit more interesting. Originally I wanted to do a really dancey 'Evergreen', which still could work one day. But Dave my MD [Musical Director] came with these chords, and it's nice to... it's a song that's so different to what I'm doing now but it's important and it's a moment and it's good to do, so we change it up and it works."
