British singer and songwriter James Blunt will release his fourth studio album MOON LANDING in the U.S. on November 5th.  The album sees the Grammy-nominated Blunt going back to basics musically, with an incredibly powerful collection of emotionally charged songs.  A perfect example is the track “Miss America” which was inspired by the tragic death of Whitney Houston. James recently performed a beautifully raw version of the song which can be seen here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10VHXHZ49b0 .

 

MOON LANDING is produced by Tom Rothrock (Beck, Moby, Foo Fighters), who worked with James on his multi-platinum selling debut BACK TO BEDLAM, and Martin Terefe (Martha Wainwright, Jason Mraz, KT Tunstall).  The album’s first single “Bonfire Heart” was co-written with Ryan Tedder and can be heard here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZB5LnNC-e0

 

James said: “There’s just something romantic, old-school and lonely about the moon landings. A nostalgic memory of something huge that we can hardly believe we once achieved, and for some sad reason, can’t achieve again – like first love.  This is a much more personal album, and also quite back to basics.”
