After a three-year break, James Blunt is ready to release new music with his third studio album, Some Kind Of Trouble.

The first single off the new record is ‘Stay The Night’ which was released on September 10th in Austria (reaching a peak of #4); it is set to be released worldwide October 25th. Blunt will be perfoming the song tonight for the Help For Heroes Charity Concert in Twickenham.

The album cover has been unvailed and it is not exactly original, as the same concept has been done before by several other artists throughout the years (Nirvana’s Nevermind, Puddle of Mudd’s Come Clean, and most recently by Taylor Momsen’s band The Pretty Reckless, for their debut Light Me Up), but that does not keep it from being eye catching, interesting and eyebrow raising. It in fact is a still taken from a viral video posted on YouTube by ShayCarl for his vlog thumbnail. His wife took the picture as the user ShayCarl threw his daughter in the air. Blunt bought the rights to the picture last year, and now it has been used as his album cover art.
