Pop Idol winner Will Young announced his eight studio album with a naked photo baring his backside.

Young took to Twitter to make the big announcement and that the album would be called, All The Songs.

‘Here we go. Album 8….’ read the caption alongside the cheeky photo.

The 40-year-old also took to Instagram to tease a music video for a new single.

Dressed in black leather and donning a long black wig, Young wrote: ‘Biker ……? 5 days until video is upon us.’

Young rose to fame after winning the first series of UK Pop Idol in 2002, also making him the first winner of the worldwide reality TV show.

Shortly after winning Pop Idol, Young also came out as gay after tabloid newspaper outed him.

Earlier this month he revealed the pressures he felt as a gay man earlier in his career.

‘Things have changed a lot since I won Pop Idol and I didn’t even realize in the past how persecuted I was as a gay man,’ he said in an interviews.

‘At times I felt scared and I didn’t want to rock the boat for my career.’

The Leave Right Now singer added: ‘But now, that feels archaic. We’re in a different age and I’m more confident in myself and I also have legal backing that I didn’t have before.’

‘Civil partnerships, gay marriage, gay adoption, being able to feel secure in your relationships – all these things have made me, as a gay man, feel more secure.’
