Some love him, others have little to do with his music. But even his sharpest critics have to smile when James Blunt reacts to criticism with a lot of self-irony. The musician lets his very own humour flash through again and again during his live appearances, which always makes a James Blunt gig a very entertaining affair. If you want to see for yourself, you get the opportunity to do so again in 2020. Because then James Blunt comes back on a big tour, which will also take him to Frankfurt.
When the "Once Upon A Mind" tour is as successful as his last guest appearances, fans can look forward to a great concert in the Frankfurt Festhalle on 19.03.2020. At the 2014 performance in Frankfurt Blunt enthused with a successful mixture of current songs and hits from his now almost 15 years lasting career. Between the songs the singer enchanted his audience with a lot of wit, charm and just this self-irony, which makes him so sympathetic.
Before his tour, the album "Once Upon A Mind" will be released on October 25th. The single "Cold" is the first convincing foretaste of this album. After he flirted with electronic sounds on his last album "The Afterlove" - which didn't convince all fans - Blunt returns with the new songs to what he masters like hardly anyone else: writing timeless songs that touch both heart and head. It is exactly this spritziness of "Cold" that characterises the other ten songs on "Once Upon A Mind", his sixth studio album. Rich in highlights, including the moving ballad "Monsters", the pop coolness of "5 Miles" and the country-coloured "Halfway".
"I think this is the most honest album I've ever made," says James Blunt proudly about his latest work. "Back To Bedlam' was similar in that I had been writing about my life experiences at the time for a while and they came together on my debut. And every song on this album stands for something I'm currently experiencing or have experienced more recently. It's a very personal album and I'm proud to share it with the world."
We are really looking forward to the new songs and the upcoming concert!
