James Blunt

It’s been 15 years since fans first fell in love with the charming James Blunt via his blockbuster 2004 debut album 'Back To Bedlam' and the global sensation 'You’re Beautiful'. The chart-topping superstar – made famous by his honest, heartfelt songs and impressive Twitter skills – has amassed more than 67 million streams in Australia to date and sold 23 million albums worldwide, as well as 5 x Grammy Award nominations, 2 x BRIT Awards and 2 x Ivor Novello Awards. James recently returned with his latest, deeply personal 2019 album, 'Once Upon A Mind', debuting at Number 5 in Australia on the ARIA chart.

Fans will instantly recognise James in the video for 'Cold', filmed in the Welsh countryside, mirroring the iconic music video and a circular nod to 'You’re Beautiful'. Cold reflects where he’s come from – and where he’s now going. “I’m back where I started,” says James of his new material. “Writing songs for me and the people around me. And I’m free again.”

‘Once Upon A Mind is by far James’ most personal and raw (album) since his debut.’ – The Sun
‘If Back To Bedlam was his songs of innocence then Once Upon A Mind is his songs of experience.’ – Mail On Sunday
