Who We Used to Be, the musician’s seventh LP, will be released Oct. 27
James Blunt has shared a new single, “Beside You.” The song, produced by the Six, is the first listen from the musician’s forthcoming seventh album, Who We Used to Be, out Oct. 27 via Atlantic Records.
“It’s a bit of a celebration,” Blunt explained of the single in a statement. “An upbeat banger about finally being with the one you’ve been searching for your whole life.”
To record Who We Used to Be Blunt worked with a variety of producers, including Jonny Coffer, Red Triangle, Jack & Coke, and Steve Robson. The LP follows his 2019 effort Once Upon A Mind. Earlier this year, that album’s single “Monsters,” written about Blunt’s dad, came back into the spotlight thanks to an emotional performance on American Idol with winner Iam Tongi.
In 2021, Blunt unveiled a greatest hits album, The Stars Beneath My Feet (2004- 2021). The 30-song collection spanned the musician’s lengthy career, including hits like “You’re Beautiful” and “Cold.”
