James Blunt is spoiling fans this week dropping a new single, an album release date and now he has announced an upcoming tour.

Blunt today revealed news of a massive 2020 tour playing a huge nine shows in the UK, and many more across Europe.

The tour starts in Birmingham on Friday 14 February.

Too sweet.

News of the tour comes after Blunt yesterday released a single from his next album Once Upon A Mind – due out on Friday 25 October through Atlantic Records.

Ahead of its release Blunt said the album, which will be his sixth, would be the ‘saddest’ yet because ‘misery sells’.

The first track, Cold, is a long-distance love song. ‘It’s been lonely, trying get your attention from a thousand miles away,’ he sings in the first verse. ‘And you know me, always overthinking the worst possibilities.’

The singer had heralded that the album would feature back to basics ballads after his foray into electronica on his last record The Afterlove.

‘I think this is the most honest album I have ever made” said Blunt in a press statement.

Back To Bedlam was similar in that I had been writing those songs for a while about my life experiences at that time, and they came together on my debut.

‘And every song on this album represents something that I’m currently going through or have recently experienced. It’s a very personal record, and I’m proud I can share it.’
