James Blunt Unveils Video For Latest Track ‘The Truth’

Following the release of his top 3 UK and sixth studio album, ‘Once Upon A Mind’, James Blunt today released the video for latest track ‘The Truth’.

Directed by Vaughan Arnell, the video sees James 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 James’ 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, James 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.”

James’ 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 his sixth studio album ‘Once Upon A Mind’, James Blunt has reinforced his reputation for writing honest, emotional songs that people can easily relate to.

His recent appearance on Graham Norton was notable on several levels. He performed a heartfelt rendition of ‘Cold’ with a beautiful gospel choir, then joined a sofa that included Bruce Springsteen and Robert DeNiro, and proceeded to steal the show with his quick wit and charm. James has also recently appeared on The One Show, Good Morning Britain and the Andrew Marr show.
