James Blunt is back.
The man behind monster hits like ‘You’re Beautiful’ and ‘Goodbye My Lover’ is returning to tackle the charts once more with his new album ‘Moon Landing’.
Born in an army hospital in Tidworth, Wiltshire, Blunt was educated in Harrow, then Bristol. And following is school years signed up for four years in the Army. He ended up serving six, in Canada, Kosovo and then London. He was spotted playing at the South by Southwest Music Festival and signed up by Linda Perry to her new label Custard. In 2005, he recorded his first album, ‘Back To Bedlam’.
Two more albums, three world tours, four number one singles, five Grammy nods (plus two BRITS, two Ivor Novellos and a host of MTV awards) and seven whole years on the road later, Blunt is returning to the sound that made him famous, with a ‘back to basics’ approach to his new album.
Elaborating on the title, Blunt said; ‘There’s just something romantic, old-school and lonely about the moon landings.’
‘A nostalgic memory of something huge that we can hardly believe we once achieved, and for some sad reason, can’t achieve again – like first love.’
‘In my teens, I found freedom in music. It’s a way of dreaming, a way to express who you are to the audience, but just as importantly, to yourself. It has taken me a while to understand it, to feel it again – and start dreaming again.’
