James Blunt had to argue with his record label bosses to keep a saucy song on his latest album - because they deemed the track too "filthy" to be included on the CD.
The Beautiful hitmaker released his third studio album, Some Kind Of Trouble, in November (10) - but he almost had to drop a song called Turn Me On from the record following pressure from music bosses.
Blunt reveals he was asked to scrap the track - but he fought for it to stay on the disc.
They eventually agreed to place Turn Me On as the last song, following five seconds of silence, to separate it from the rest of the album.
He tells British TV show Loose Women, "My record label didn't want it on the album at all. I wrote it in an over excited moment. I think (they wanted to leave it off) because they didn't think it would be appropriate... it's filthy.
"So my album runs songs one to 11 and then there's a gap, and then there's song number 13, which is the unlucky song Turn Me On... You know behind closed doors I'm filthy."
