Watch’s James Blunt’s Poignant Video For ‘The Girl That Never Was’
Directed by Vaughan Arnell (Sam Smith, Pet Shop Boys) the video for The Girl That Never Was tells a story of the painful aftermath of the loss of a child, reflecting the delicate, raw, lyrical themes of the acoustic-lead track. You can watch it in full below.
Prior to The Girl That Never Was, the new album’s first single arrived in the shape of the upbeat banger Beside You. Directed by Craig Bingham, that song’s video evokes memories of James’ past.
