James Blunt Shares New Single ‘The Girl That Never Was’
James Blunt has shared his new single The Girl That Never Was, the emotional next instalment of music from his upcoming new album Who We Used To Be, set for release on 27 October.
The Girl That Never Was, which lyrically explores the theme of loss, is delicate, raw, acoustic-lead and one of Blunt’s most emotional songs to date. You can check the song out 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, the song’s video evokes memories of James’ past. Meeting versions of himself throughout his life, the video sees James embrace the characters of his past self, as he moves forward.
Who We Used To Be is James Blunt’s first studio album since the acclaimed, top 3 Once Upon A Mind in 2019. This time out he has worked with a variety of producers including Jonny Coffer, Red Triangle, Jack & Coke and Steve Robson. His recent greatest hits collection, The Stars Beneath My Feet, went Gold selling over 100,000 copies.
