It will be perfect if Will release The Best on vinyl. But I think it can't be.

Will's a truly unique, British talent. He's the reality TV star that proved that such beginnings don't necessarily follow the trend of being an initial 'flash in the pan' to eventual obscurity. Quite quickly after his first flush of success, Will went public about his sexuality (seemingly before the British tabloids did it for him - how nice of them).

At first, his career was under the dubious (but successful) eye of Simon Cowell, so of course, the initial outings were going to be the kind of bland yet sugary sweet 'pop' that Cowell knows sells buy the bucket load. So far so good.

Cowell's marketing techniques worked (as they usually do for that particular Svengali) but Will transcended that primary exposure and carefully, intelligently, built a credible canon which without a doubt ensured that accusations of being a 'puppet' or 'manufactured' were completely dispelled. He's had his issues, to the extent that he publicly declared his retirement from "the biz" and vowed to never release another album after 2015's "85% Proof". Being a so-called pop star isn't quite as easy as they make it look, clearly, and the inherent pressures took their toll on Will's mental health. To Will, it just wasn't worth it any more.

Luckily - Will has decided to give this aspect of his career another go and to this end, has recently released his 7th studio album, Lexicon. He's now doing things 'his way'. As well as making music, and continuing to make really inventive videos for the singles, he's also an actor, stage performer and a motivational speaker, promoting positive attitudes towards mental health issues. A busy man who deserves his success, as well as a fresh evaluation of his undoubted impact on British music in the past 18 years. Welcome back Will!
