    We changed the format for today's Take Aim since we had James Blunt as our guest. He is English so we decided to be polite.

    Pick one song on Moon Landing and give us the scoop! How about "Bonfire Heart?"

    I wrote the song with Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, we worked together before and we get on. He was on tour in Europe and I jumped on the tour bus. I was like a groupie to OneRepublic and we wrote the song on the road in Amsterdam and Luxembourg, about the human condition and the need to connect with someone. We need someone to light the spark in our bonfire heart.

    What's on tap for 2014?

    It's an exciting time. It's doing its thing. We will do a world tour that begins in China on New Year's Eve. We will cover some ground. Last time, I did 260 cities in a year on my tour! I'll be in the States around May time. That's where I hope to be.

    Any non-music skills, hobbies or talents?

    I love skiing. I used to race downhill for the army. I love water skiing and surfing and diving.

    You are playing a charity gig at Prince William and Kate's place on November 26. Ever hobnob with royals? Will there be a duet with Taylor Swift?

    I haven't been asked to [duet with Swift] but I am looking forward to the concert! I have done 'em a few times. It's always an honor. It's not more nerve-wrecking than a normal audience, but it is a special occasion.

    And you nabbed the Nobel Peace Prize gig -- whoa!

    Yes, there is a 60-or-80 piece orchestra that they are providing to use as my backing band. Very different.

    Are you going to have a "lunar landing" with James Blunt?
