Uber cool album cover.
Nothing new here really, basically just a collage of James Blunt pictures. But it just works so well here and it’s so nicely done, you can’t help but appreciate it. I like it a lot. The idea for the artwork came about supposedly because Blunt didn’t want his face on the album cover. So they put 1000 of his pictures on it!
The lead single off the album has already leaked. It’s called “1973”. Been playing it a lot lately actually. It’s slightly different from what we’re used to hearing from James Blunt. This one’s more uptempo, and has a bit of an 80’s vibe about it. Parts of it also kinda reminds me of Bryan Adams’ “Cloud #9”, which I love. So the song’s definitely a hit in my book.
