Custard/Atlantic recording artist James Blunt's hugely anticipated new album Some Kind Of Trouble finds Blunt in a delightfully upbeat frame of mind, capturing the five-time Grammy-nominated troubadour's newfound sense of spontaneity and excitement. Some Kind Of Trouble marks a new chapter for Blunt, who sees his internationally successful first two albums as a kind of matched pair - action and reaction.
The album - which follows 2007's acclaimed All The Lost Souls- will be heralded by the infectious single, "Stay The Night." Other highlights include the bittersweet "These Are The Words," the trenchant, pointed "Superstar" and the powerful, unsentimental ballad, "No Tears," which Blunt views as the album's anchor, describing it as "the summing up of a life," explaining that, "There are certain songs along the way that are milestones, that define a writer to themselves. ‘No Tears' is my milestone on this album."
With global album sales now at a staggering 18 million, James Blunt is without question among the most gifted and successful singer/songwriters of his generation. He first captured the world's attention in 2005 with his 2x RIAA platinum-certified debut, Back To Bedlam, which featured the history-making #1 classic, "You're Beautiful." All The Lost Souls followed two years later, debuting atop the album charts in 10 countries and earning unanimous critical acclaim for such hits as "1973" and "Same Mistake."
