James Blunt today announces a special greatest hits album, The Stars Beneath My Feet (2004-2021)– out November 19th on Atlantic Records – alongside a huge UK arena tour for 2022 which will see James celebrate songs spanning a stellar 17-year career that has spawned over 23 million album sales, a global smash hit with You’re Beautiful, two Brit Awards and two Ivor Novello Awards, as well as receiving five Grammy Award nominations.
Amongst the string of hit singles, The Stars Beneath My Feet (2004-2021) will also include four new songs as well as four exclusive live performances from around the world, including the Glastonbury Festival.
James’ classic 2004 debut album Back To Bedlam, was recently named as one of the top ten best selling albums of that decade, and with Once Upon A Mind, James Blunt reinforced his reputation for writing honest, emotional songs that people can easily relate to. The album marked a return to what James Blunt does best – writing classic songs that touch both the heart and the head. Another side of James – his wit and charm – have in recent times been showcased via his always engaging Twitter account.
As well as his huge 2022 greatest hits UK arena tour, James Blunt and his band will be one of the highlights of this summer during his string of highly anticipated rescheduled UK dates. The tour includes a must-see date at the Royal Albert Hall on 23rd July, the first full-capacity concert at the venue as part of its 150th anniversary celebrations.
James will perform at the Bonus Arena in Hull on 8th February and the First Direct Arena in Leeds on 11th February 2022.
