Hot off the back of a show-stopping performance at ‘Radio 2 In The Park’, James Blunt today releases ‘The Girl That Never Was’, the emotional next instalment of music from his upcoming new album Who We Used To Be – out October 27th. 

The new single, which lyrically explores the heartbreaking theme of loss, is delicate, raw, acoustic-lead and one of James’ most emotional songs to date.

The album’s first single arrived in the shape of the upbeat banger ‘Beside You’. Directed by Craig Bingham, the video evokes memories of James’ past. Meeting versions of himself throughout his life, the video sees James embrace the characters of his past self as he moves forward. Watch the video for ‘Beside You’ – BELOW:

Who We Used To Be is James’ first studio album since the acclaimed, top 3 Once Upon A Mind in 2019. This time out he has worked with a variety of producers including Jonny Coffer, Red Triangle, Jack & Coke and Steve Robson. His recent greatest hits collection, The Stars Beneath My Feet, went Gold, selling over 100,000 copies.

Next year, James makes a most welcome return to the road, where he will play 12 dates across the UK next Spring, kicking off March 30th at Leeds First Direct Arena and finishing April 14th at the Bournemouth International Centre. Tickets are on sale now at www.jamesblunt.com
