Absolutely ! I am tired and excited and a little anxious and MASSIVELY EXCITED and I am not sure I'll be able to sleep tonight and I'm planning to get up early to listen to that radio programme and... HELP, I'm hyperventilating

(I think the "freak" part of the email was intended for me)

Long time lurker, infrequent poster.

Had a listen to Love Me Better and Time of our Lives a few times, but can't really bring myself to listen to them any more than that. LMB especially sounds a bit like the weaker tracks on SKOT.

I'm holding out hopes that some day there'll be a Back to Bedlam v2 but no album since 2005 has been comparable. Whenever I put on High or Tears and Rain it gives nostalgia like nothing else. Out of my Mind, So Long Jimmy, You're Beautiful, Billy and Cry too - no album James has released since B2B has been that strong an offering. I can't fault any song on it.

I wish he'd get together with Sacha Skarbek again and put out some kind of follow up :/

Spend 15 mins looking at this interview with him - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmjrPggJoBY

Especially around the 6:40 mark when he shows the writing process behind Wisemen & You're Beautiful.

The new promotional clip for the album. Very much inspired by us...

"It's OK...we're all @JamesBlunt fans here"

If you have been affected by James Blunt, please order The Afterlove the new album.

ShortList
By Dave Fawbert
13 March 2017

It’s no exaggeration to say that few men in recent times have managed to U-turn their public perception quite so successfully as James Blunt.

As his saccharine hit You’re Beautiful clogged up the charts and the radio back in 2004, he was – without exaggeration – one of the most hated men in Britain. Cue the advent of Twitter, a whole host of hilarious replies and comebacks in which he owned his own uncoolness and position as a hate figure, and slowly but surely gained everyone’s respect. He recently told us: “My record label started it up and asked if I could promote my music. I thought, ‘That sounds really boring.’ So I decided I’d just abuse myself on it.”

And the Bluntmeister general is back at it again with this new TV advert for his new album The Afterlove, which features – what album doesn’t these days? – a co-write with Ed Sheeran, the man who has taken his crown as the easy target for people looking to slag someone off for being a bit boring yet stratospherically successful.

To explain it would be to ruin it, so here it is:

https://youtu.be/xCG73MBAEaA

Excellent.

While we’re here, another chance to remind you all that – no matter what you think about him, 1973 remains an undisputed, all-time, absolute banger of a tune.

The CD arrived around 9:00 this morning!
Since then, I can't stop listening to it. After all I'm reaffirming that I love JB's voice.

We got two songs as bonus tracks for Japan.
14: LOVE ME BETTER (OFENBACH REMIX) 15: LOVE ME BETTER (WE ARE I.V REMIX)

There are many songs I really love. Among them my favorite is MAKE ME BETTER so far.

Longtime boardie original Bedlamite here....seems it has been forever since I sat down to actually write on this forum although I have been popping in and out lurking around from time to time. It is nice to see some familiar "faces" on here and new (to me) ones as well.

In my opinion, The Afterlove is right up there with B2B in quality, purity and a sense of who and where James is right now. Although there are a mixture of styles and sounds, I think it is fantastic. To me it kind of feels all is right in the world now for James with of course the bumps and bruises along the way. I feel he's letting us see some of his rawness once again... some moments on TA where I feel he lays bare allowing us a peek inside.

For now TA is on loop in my home, my car, my head and penetrating its way into my soul...as B2B once did.

Thank you James for this..... a treasure I am cherishing.

I'm loving this album as well. It delivers the emotional payload I've come to love on a James Blunt record. At the same, it is light and fun. I like pop and I like JB's unique style, it's a win win for me.

James' vocals sound open and relaxed, as on B2B, like he's really enjoying singing these songs. I love his 'don't-give-a-fug' attitude and is making music that excites him.

I love all the songs, some standout more than others, still undecided as to which one is my favourite. How rare to love so many songs on one album. Awesome work. Congrates James

I received an email that my order would be delayed, but I was excited to see that my order had arrived today.

However, I need help, please. I had received a confirmation email that I would receive two signed copies because I pre-ordered so early - but they are not signed. Is it possible that something inside the CD is signed by James? I thought he would just sign the cover. Both are factory-sealed.

I'm living in the U.S. at this moment.

Help, please...a little sad...
