The singer, whose last LP was 2009's The Hits, admitted that he is "excited" about the record, which he hopes will show people a different side of his personality.
"I'm so excited about it," he told Metro. "I did a song with Groove Armada last year which someone compared to Bronski Beat, which was a compliment, so I've gone a bit upbeat.
"I've had good feedback from the record company."
Asked if he is bored of singing ballads, he responded: "I can do more than one thing. I've always been more attuned to doing mid-tempo stuff, maybe because of my voice of temperament, and I'm not moving away from that.
"If I suddenly recorded a dubstep record that'd be stupid. I want to do different things but within my boundaries; I want to continue to evolve."
Young's last studio album, 2008's Let It Go, peaked at number two on the chart and sold half a million copies.
