James Blunt is reaching for the stars with his stellar new release, ‘Love Under Pressure!’ The track is one of the four new songs appearing on his upcoming greatest hits album, The Stars Beneath My Feet (2004-2021), set to arrive on November 19 via Atlantic Records. Listen to ‘Love Under Pressure’ here!
Co-written with Jack Savoretti and produced by the brilliant songwriting duo Afterhrs, ‘Love Under Pressure’ is an infectious piano-driven dance bop. Thanks to the exquisite choice of instruments and hypnotic beats, James rightly delivers the euphoric moments you wait for in the song! The lyrics are more emphasized and have a stronger impact on the ears because of the production involved. Before we knew it, we were on our feet, jumping and vibing to the otherwise heartbreaking context behind the lyrics.
Earlier this year during the lockdown, I was lucky enough to have a Zoom writing session with the very talented Jack Savoretti. We had never worked together before, but our managers thought it might be a good idea to get us together to do some writing. I’m very pleased we did. Not only is Jack a great guy, but we wrote a banger of a single!
