The singer told Loose Women that the positive feedback about Echoes has inspired his future songwriting.
"It's been like a breath of fresh air for me. It's probably been the most critically acclaimed of all my albums," he said.
"I think after ten years, having that as well as it going to number one is just great; I feel like I've got this new lease of life and I'm evolving as a songwriter.
"I love singing now more than I ever did and maybe that's because I've done acting, and after this record's down I'm going to do the stage show Cabaret."
Young recently released footage of his outdoor shows for the Forestry Commission.
