With over 20 million albums sold, platinum records, sold out tours and five Grammy Award nominations, it’s easy to imagine why James Blunt’s career has been a triumphal trait. But the fact is that it was about to end before it even started. After being discovered by songwriter Linda Perry at the South By Southwest show, James Blunt debuted with the single “High” and the album “Back To Bedlam” in October 2004 but these went almost unnoticed. It wasn’t until the three-piece “You’re Beautiful” was released just over half a year later that he had his boom.
“You’re Beatiful” peaked the lists in ten countries – including Sweden, England and the United States. With the drag-and-drop, the album “Back To Bedlam” rushed up for the lists and became the best selling record in Britain in the twentieth century. Since then, the success has continued for James Blunt – every single disc he has released has sold platinum several times.
In March 2017, James Blunt released his fifth album “The Afterlove”, which include collaborations with Ed Sheeran and Stephan Moccio (Miley Cyrus, The Weeknd).
