Since his debut was released in 2004, James has had four number one singles and won countless awards including two BRITs, two Ivor Novello Awards, 5 Grammy nominations and a host of MTV awards. To date he has sold nearly 17 million albums and 20 million singles worldwide.
The album is produced by Tom Rothrock (Beck, Moby, Foo Fighters), who worked with James on his multi-platinum selling debut ‘Back To Bedlam’ , with additional production from Martin Terefe (KT Tunstall, Martha Wainwright, Jason Mraz). Of the new album, James comments: “This is a much more personal album, and also quite back to basics. It’s about me and Tom, the producer, finding where the story all started and where we are now”.
The album includes the single ‘Bonfire Heart’, co-written with Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter Ryan Tedder (front man with the band One Republic).
