James Blunt's 'Moon Landing' Touching Down This Fall
Blunt reunited with producer Tom Rothrock (Beck, Moby, Foo Fighters) for the new album. Rothrock had previously worked with Blunt on his "Back To Bedlam" album. The album also features production from Martin Terefe (KT Tunstall, Martha Wainwright, Jason Mraz) and Ryan Tedder.
Yesterday, Blunt premiered the first single from the new album, "Bonfire Heart" which was produced and co-written by Tedder. You can listen to it here.
"This is a much more personal album, and also quite back to basics," says Blunt. "It's about me and Tom, the producer, finding where the story all started and where we are now.
"It's an album about dreams, longing, first love. About looking in the mirror and seeing the boy you were, the man you are – and learning to be comfortable with that, flaws and all.
