James Blunt Spent Over a Decade Writing a Song E! News UK


James Blunt took 12 years to write one of his new songs.

The ‘You’re Beautiful’ hitmaker’s new greatest hits album ‘The Stars Beneath My Feet’ also features new material and he admitted the idea of ​​’Love Under Pressure’ has been with him for a long time.

He told Red magazine: “I’ve had the piano part in my head for 12 years.

“All my friends would come and ask me if I could play something new, but I couldn’t make it into a full song.”

After almost two decades in the music industry, James thinks his songs are “stronger” now, but he fears he’s lost his “innocence”.

He said: “I think my songs are stronger today than when I started.

“But at the same time, with music, there is great beauty in naivety and innocence.

“I feel more competent as a songwriter now, but I also feel that innocence may have been taken away from me.”

The 47-year-old singer is known for his witty comebacks on Twitter and he admitted the negative comments he received bothered him.

However, he was quick to “overcome” his critics due to the “massive bonuses” of his work.

Asked if he was bothered by negative comments, he admitted: “When I first released music and I was very, very visible.

“Interestingly, there can be 100 positives, but the only negative is the one we as humans are always drawn to and affected the most.

“But I’ve always thought that if you don’t like something, don’t listen to it.

“You definitely get over it when you go to a show that night and a couple thousand people show up to listen to your songs or you go on a tour around the world.

“There are huge bonuses. I live in Ibiza. I enter clubs for free. So I’ll take it.
