James Blunt Gets Into "SOME KIND OF TROUBLE"; 5x Grammy-Nominated British Singer/Songwriter Sets Eagerly Awaited Third Album; First Single, "Stay The Night," Arrives on November 2nd "SOME KIND OF TROUBLE" Hits the U.S. on January 25th, 2011

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 14, 2010) -  Custard/Atlantic recording artist James Blunt has announced the release of his hugely anticipated new album. "SOME KIND OF TROUBLE" lands at U.S. stores and online retailers on January 25th, 2011.

The album -- which follows 2007's acclaimed "ALL THE LOST SOULS" -- will be heralded by the infectious single, "Stay The Night." Written by Blunt with Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic) and award-winning songwriter/producer Steve Robson (Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Take That), the sexy, acoustic driven party song will be available at all leading U.S. DSPs on November 2nd.

"SOME KIND OF TROUBLE" finds Blunt in a delightfully upbeat frame of mind, capturing the five-time Grammy-nominated troubadour's newfound sense of spontaneity and excitement. Produced by Robson (with additional production from The Bird & the Bee's Greg Kurstin, and Eg White), the album marks a new chapter for Blunt, who sees his internationally successful first two albums as a kind of matched pair -- action and reaction.

"The second album was quite introverted," he says. "It was about perception. But these new songs are not about fame and celebrity -- they're about reality. I've been hanging out with my friends, writing songs about the world we live in, and where we want to go."

Among the highlights of "SOME KIND OF TROUBLE" are the bittersweet "These Are The Words," the trenchant, pointed "Superstar" and the powerful, unsentimental ballad, "No Tears," which Blunt views as the album's anchor, describing it as "the summing up of a life," explaining that, "There are certain songs along the way that are milestones, that define a writer to themselves. 'No Tears' is my milestone on this album."

As the release of "SOME KIND OF TROUBLE" approaches, Blunt is already eager to share his new material with his fans everywhere, promising that "We're going to have the time of our lives playing these songs." A worldwide tour is slated to kick off in early 2011 -- full details will be announced shortly. 

With global album sales now at a staggering 18 million, James Blunt is without question among the most gifted and successful singer/songwriters of his generation. He first captured the world's attention in 2005 with his 2x RIAA platinum-certified debut, "BACK TO BEDLAM," which featured the history-making #1 classic, "You're Beautiful." "ALL THE LOST SOULS" followed two years later, debuting atop the album charts in 10 countries and earning unanimous critical acclaim for such hits as "1973" and "Same Mistake."
