Following the news that his sixth studio album, ‘Once Upon A Mind’, will be released on October 25th via Atlantic Records, James Blunt today announces a major 2020 UK and European tour including a must see show at London’s Royal Albert Hall April 7th.
James kicks off the tour February 14th in Birmingham and finishes at London’s Royal Albert Hall playing shows across Europe throughout the run.
After flirting with electronica on his last album, James Blunt returns to what he does best on new album ‘Once Upon A Mind’, writing classic songs that touch both the heart and the head. Highlights are many and include the breezy first single ‘Cold’, 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 his 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.
