Described by James as a “hymn to his sons”, ‘I Told You’ is a memorable and deeply moving track from a loyal father to his growing-up-too-quickly children. “Hymn is a great word,” James reflects. “When I realised that things were going on at the older end of my family, with my father, I looked at my children and thought: these are things I need to say to you. We need to live every moment to the full, and celebrate the relationships we have. That’s what this song is about: it’s a celebration, with a dash of melancholy.”

News of James’ new album has been met with huge support across the board from fans and media alike. Following an outpouring of love on social media, he took to The One Show on BBC One to perform a stunning acoustic version of ‘Cold’, complete with a Gospel Choir.

On the new album, James has worked with a variety of producers including Steve Robson, Jimmy Hogarth and TMS. Highlights are many and include the poignant ballad ‘Monsters’, the pop swagger of ‘5 Miles’ and the country tinged ‘Halfway.’ There’s a warmth that permeates the entire album, and a real sense of personality.

James Blunt released that classic first album, ‘Back To Bedlam’, in the autumn of 2004 and soon after the single ‘You’re Beautiful’ became a global smash hit. He has sold over 23 million albums and has showcased his wit and charm more recently with his always engaging twitter account.
