NEW YORK (Top40 Charts/ Custard/ Atlantic Records) - Custard/Atlantic Records has announced the forthcoming release of the eagerly awaited second album from multi-platinum singer/songwriter James Blunt. Entitled "ALL THE LOST SOULS," the album will be released outside the U.S. on September 17th, with its North American release slated for the following day. The first single from the album, "1973," will premiere worldwide on July 23rd. "ALL THE LOST SOULS" comes nearly three years after the original October 2004 UK release of Blunt's breakthrough debut, "BACK TO BEDLAM," and two years following its U.S. release in October 2005.

"ALL THE LOST SOULS" was recorded and mixed in Los Angeles with producer Tom Rothrock, who also oversaw "BACK TO BEDLAM." The new collection features several songs that became road-tested favorites in the course of Blunt's marathon touring during 2006 - including "1973," "I Really Want You," "Same Mistake," and "Annie." Backing Blunt throughout "ALL THE LOST SOULS" is his long-standing live band of keyboardist Paul Beard, guitarist Ben Castle, bassist Malcolm Moore, and drummer Karl Brazil.

"For me, there was absolutely no pressure whatsoever," says Blunt. "Having sold over 11 million albums, I know that the likelihood of doing that again is really minimal. Instead of setting that as a target, I set out to do and record something that I really enjoy, that I'm really happy with. It was a release, in a way. It's something that I can say shows my growth and a development as a songwriter and as a musician, shows development in my own life, and records and documents it in that way."

Among his activities leading up to the release of "ALL THE LOST SOULS," Blunt will perform at London's Wembley Stadium on July 7th as part of the monumental "Live Earth" music event. The global concerts will feature 24 hours of music spanning 7 continents, bringing together more than 2 billion people to combat the climate crisis.
