This is a real exclusive for the site! A while back James Blunt sent me a message through myspace asking whether we’d be interested in giving his forthcoming album a push by posting a track. Naturally I was horrified at the very suggestion but in the spirit of giving every artist an equal go, no matter how feeble, I said we’d be delighted (there’s only me but shur why burst his bubble?). The mp3 arrived a few hours later and I was really staggered at his new direction. Gone are the drippy themes of love and general angst and in their place stands insightful passages that will really have most people scratching their heads as to their meaning. His voice, such a thorn in the earlobes for most decent indie folk, has also undergone a radical makeover, a certain joyful innocence has replaced the quivering nonchalant warble of old. I’m not making this up, ‘Round And Round’ is by far Blunt’s best work to date and should open the doors to a new army of young fans. The new album has a provisional working title of ‘Back To Bednow’.
