    James Blunt's fifth album, The Afterlove, finds the "You're Beautiful" singer-songwriter reaching into new territory. It started off with a 5am conversation with his producer, Tom Rothrock, at Burning Man Festival, where a discussion about retirement came up. Instead, the former reconnaissance officer decided to take a new direction because, as he says, "if I just repeated myself I might as well be dead."

    Blunt recently received an Honorary Doctorate for Music from the University of Bristol, which he found amusing, remarking that it's something he doesn't take too seriously and that, "I only make my family call me Dr. Blunt." And it's his dry wit that have garnered him much attention over the last few years.

    "I'm trying to laugh at myself on social media because why would I focus on those negative guys? They're at home. They've made no f***ing effort. They're at home alone in a dark room, probably with their trousers around their ankles writing something negative, and I don't think they should be taken that seriously," he says of the few discouraging comments he gets on Twitter - a platform that the singer-songwriter has shined on. And, in reality, that's true. Despite all and any negative criticism, there are far more people buying Blunt's albums and tickets than there are people cursing his creations.
