James Blunt Unveils Video for Latest Track, "The Truth"

James Blunt has released the video for latest track “The Truth.”



Directed by Vaughan Arnell (George Michael, One Direction), the video sees Blunt strapped up with cameras running through London. Steeped in the beauty of simplicity, the video highlights the notion that we’re all travelling in certain directions, not always certain of our destination, and sometimes, even if we are, some might never get there. Featuring a catchy acoustic guitar and Blunt’s pitch perfect vocal, “The Truth” is an upbeat and heart-warming love song. When asked if the song was a direct love note to his wife, Blunt said, “Well, I’ve avoided using those words - but, yeah, I’m lucky to be here! It’s been a long, lonely journey searching for someone, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else than right here, with her.”

Blunt’s classic 2004 debut album Back To Bedlam, has just been named as one of the top ten best-selling albums of that decade, and now with Once Upon A Mind, he has reinforced his reputation for writing honest, emotional songs that people can easily relate to.

After flirting with electronica on his last album (2017’s The Afterlove), James Blunt returns to what he does best on Once Upon A Mind, writing classic songs that touch both the heart and the head. The album sees Blunt collaborating with a variety of producers such as Steve Robson, Jimmy Hogarth and TMS – resulting in a freshness that resonates throughout the eleven-song collection, with highlights including first single “Cold” (with a music video mirroring the iconic “You’re Beautiful” video fourteen years later), the poignant ballad “Monsters,” pop-infused “5 Miles” and the country tinged “Halfway.”

“I think this is the most honest album I have ever made” said Blunt. “’Back To Bedlam’ was similar in that I had been writing those songs for a while about my life experiences at that time, and they came together on my debut. And every song on this album represents something that I’m currently going through or have recently experienced. It’s a very personal record, and I’m proud I can share it.”
