Spotify Premium – James Blunt’s Some Kind of Trouble

James Blunt will be releasing his exciting new album, ‘Some Kind of Trouble‘ on November 8th, and Spotify users can hear it first, only on Spotify Premium.

Blunt’s first album, “Back to Bedlam” catapulted him into worldwide superstardom on the strength of such massive songs as “You’re Beautiful,” “High” and “Goodbye My Lover.”

His second album, 2007’s “All the Lost Souls” debuted at No. 1 in 10 countries, selling nearly 5 million copies globally and featuring such hits as “1973,” ”Same Mistake” and “Carry You Home.” He has received numerous awards and accolades including two Brit Awards, two World Music Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards, an MTV European Music Award and five Grammy nomination.

The new album is delightfully upbeat and uncynical. “It captures a bit of the mood of the early ‘80s. There was a global atmosphere in the West that we could do anything – the same optimism we felt as teenagers,” says Blunt,. ‘Some Kind of Trouble’ really captures that same sense of freedom and excitement and naivety.”
