English chart-topper James Blunt has made his return, sharing his new single Love Under Pressure and announcing the release of his greatest hits album, The Stars Beneath My Feet (2004-2021). The album is set to feature an additional three new tracks, and four exclusive live recordings.
Produced by songwriting duo Afterhrs (One Direction, Maroon 5) and written in collaboration with Jack Savoretti, Love Under Pressure brings Blunt's signature evocative and reflecting lyricism, as he presents an impassioned vocal performance. Set atop piano driven hook and swelling production, the track navigates the demise of a relationship.
Speaking of Love Under Pressure, Blunt shares: "Earlier this year during lockdown, I was lucky enough to have a Zoom writing session with the very talented Jack Savoretti. We had never worked together before, but our managers thought it might be a good idea to get us together to do some writing. I’m very pleased we did. Not only is Jack a great guy, but we wrote a banger of a single!”
The two time Brit Award winner rose to fame in 2004 with his debut album, Back to Bedlam. Spawning the hits You're Beautiful, Goodbye My Lover and Wisemen, The 11× Platinum record went on to become the UK's the best-selling album of the 2000's, peaking at #1 on the ARIA Album charts, reaching 9× Platinum locally.
