James Blunt's new album 'optimistic'

Monday, 18th Oct 2010

James Blunt has stated that his new record will have a more optimistic feel to it than his previous recordings.

The performer told the Daily Mail that he wanted his new album to be closer to the music he enjoyed growing up, which includes artists such as Fleetwood Mac and David Bowie.

His new record, Some Kind of Trouble, is due for release next month and will feature electric guitars and uptempo beats as he attempts to move away from the sound of his last recording All the Lost Souls.

"After the last tour I tried writing at the piano, but I was repeating myself, writing sad songs about Poor Old Me," Blunt told the news source.

He added that he thinks his new tracks are the best he has ever written and feels more confident than ever before in his music.

To coincide with the release of his new album, Blunt is set to hit the road next year, kicking off his tour on February 17th 2010 with a performance in Glasgow.
