Multi-GRAMMY nominated and multi-platinum British singer/songwriter James Blunt celebrates the release of the Time Suspended deluxe edition of his acclaimed sixth studio album Once Upon A Mind with a nostalgic video for previously unheard track, “Should I Give It All Up (Demo)”.
Shot by James himself in lockdown and directed/edited by Jacob Wise, the video for “Should I Give It All Up (Demo)” features highlights from James’ official videos across the years and is a fitting celebration of a momentous career. Of the track James said, “It’s about insecurities. We all have them.”
The release of the deluxe version comes as Once Upon A Mind fast approaches UK Gold status, and features two brand new, original demos, and five stunning, acoustic versions of songs from the album.
Once Upon A Mind has marked a return to what James Blunt does best – writing classic songs that touch both the heart and the head. Amongst the string of six hit singles, the album includes the breezy first single “Cold,” the heartbreaking ballad for his father “Monsters,” and the latest smash “The Greatest” – of which the video applauds the NHS and health workers in the frontlines, battling the coronavirus.
Blunt first captured the world’s attention in 2005 with his 3x RIAA platinum-certified debut, Back To Bedlam, and its history-making 2x platinum-certified #1 single “You’re Beautiful.” The British tunesmith has since become one of the most popular singer/songwriters of the modern era, with total album sales now in excess of 23 million worldwide. He has also been the recipient of a remarkable range of top honors, including five GRAMMY nominations, two BRIT Awards, two Ivor Novello Awards (honoring British music and songwriters), and a host of MTV awards. Blunt has also earned viral acclaim for his hugely popular and extremely witty Twitter account, boasting over 1.9 million followers and growing (@jamesblunt).
