James Blunt Quitting Music? Not Quite Yet

Rumours that James Blunt was quitting the music scene - partly catalysed by the fact he said he was quitting the music scene - have been quelled via a facebook post.

According to Gigwise, blunt 'joked' to a reporter, saying "I just want to take some time out for myself. I haven't got any plans to do more songwriting." We at Contact Music are starting to realise where the confusion stemmed from. "I have been chilling out since I finished my world tour and I've spent a lot of time in Ibiza, where I have a villa," he continued. Blunt then took to Facebook to set the record straight, but strangely, his modicum of the truth was far more cryptic than the supposed joke he was trying to amend. "The Mail on Sunday has reported that James Blunt has split up due to musical differences. Neither could be reached for comment due to recording commitments," he posted, before setting his location as 'Conway Recording Studios'. Help us out Blunt. 

The former military man shot to fame in 2005 with his hit single 'You're Beautiful' but hasn't had a Top Forty single since his 2008 release, 'Stay The Night'. His most recent album, Some Kind Of Trouble hit No.4 in 2010, reaching Gold status in the UK. He's also been the butt of many jokes from myriad comedians and prominent musical figures.
