After flirting with electronica on his last album, James Blunt returns to what he does best on new album Once Upon A Mind, writing classic songs that touch both the heart and the head. The album’s first taste arrived in the shape of the breezy, Cold, an effervescent modern spin on love.
There’s a freshness that resonates throughout the eleven new songs that make up Once Upon A Mind. On the new album, James has worked with a variety of producers including Steve Robson, Jimmy Hogarth and TMS. Highlights are many and include the poignant ballad Monsters, the pop swagger of 5 Miles and the country tinged Halfway. There’s a warmth that permeates the entire album, and a real sense of personality.
