Houston, James Blunt Has Landed
By RR

James Blunt has returned with his highly anticipated new album Moon Landing. For Blunt, his fourth studio album was about taking a more personal approach - one that focused on getting back to the basics. “It’s an album about dreams, longing, first love.” says Blunt.



The goal was to rediscover the power of music to communicate emotion in an honest way, without too much production, polish, or over-complication. To accomplish this, Blunt went back to work with Tom Rothrock (Foo Fighters, Moby, Beck), the producer behind Blunt’s Grammy nominated debut Back to Bedlam, with additional production support from Martin Terefe (Jason Mraz, Martha Wainwright, KT Tunstall).

“It’s a really beautiful sounding record, full of loneliness and longing. There’s been a lot of love put into making it, and I couldn’t be happier with how it sounds…” - James Blunt.

"Bonfire Heart”, the lead single off of Moon Landing, is an upbeat, foot stomping, sing-along gem that is uplifting and optimistic and tinged with longing. The piano, ukelele, and drum driven “Satellites” is equal parts haunting and infectiously bouncy.

Blunt fully explores a back to basics approach on "Sun On Sunday”, employing stark piano, sparse ambient sounds, and exposed vocals that float vulnerably as if in outer space. The song's arrangement and structure draws your attention to Blunt’s stunning vocals and words. 



James Blunt is best known for his worldwide smash hits “You’re Beautiful” and “Goodbye My Lover” from his 10x platinum (UK) and 2x platinum (US) debut album Back to Bedlam (2004). Subsequent releases, All The Lost Souls (2007) and Some Kind of Trouble (2010) featured the hit tracks “1973” and “Stay the Night” which continued to expand upon Blunt’s signature brand of singer-songwriter infused pop.
