âThis is a much more personal album, and also quite back to basics,â commented Blunt. âItâs about me and Tom, the producer, finding where the story all started and where we are now. Itâs an album about dreams, longing, first love.â About looking in the mirror and seeing the boy you were, the man you are â and learning to be comfortable with that, flaws and all. About getting back to basics and rediscovering the power of music to communicate emotion directly and honestly, without too much polish or complication.
Since BACK TO BEDLAM was released in 2004, James has won countless awards including two BRITs, two Ivor Novello Awards, 5 Grammy nominations and a host of MTV awards. He has sold nearly 17 million albums and 20 million singles worldwide and toured around the globe several times over.
