James Blunt announces today all the details of a new remastered edition by Back To Bedlamone of the best-selling albums of the 2000s, to be released on 11 October on the occasion of the exactly 20 years since its publication.

To celebrate this important milestone James will be back on the road in February for a special series of dates in arenas during which he will perform the entire tracklist of the album live, along with all the hits from his career; theonly Italian date of this special tour is set for Saturday 22 February 2025 at the Unipol Arena in Bologna. Members of the fan club of James Blunt will be able to preview the tickets from 10am on Wednesday 29 Maywhile general sales will be open on Ticketone e Ticketmaster from 10am on Friday 31 May.

Among the new formats of Back To Bedlam release includes a special version remastered in 2024 by Stuart Hawkes, along with a series of unreleased demos of the album's most popular singles, as well as some never-before-released songs written at the same time by Blunt.

In his usual style, James Blunt states: 'I have released seven studio albums, but Back To Bedlam was the one that people actually bought. So, on its 20th anniversary, the record label and I thought we should enhance it with some of the early demos and capitalise on its value. It was one of the most popular albums of the 2000s, so I hope it can make its mark in the 2010s as well."

Back To Bedlam contains the great worldwide success You're Beautiful and is one of the ten best-selling albums of the 2000s. He won two Brit Awards, two Ivor Novello Awards and received five Grammy nominations. James is timidly approaching national treasure status in his native UK and is highly regarded for his intelligence and charisma, as is evident from his records, stage performances and social banter.

Last year, the singer-songwriter released his seventh studio album Who We Used To Be. With "melodies that press emotional buttons with military precision" (Financial Times) and considered "his best work in a long time" (Retropop Magazine), Who We Used To Be is the first studio album by James after the highly acclaimed Once Upon A Mind of 2019. His recent greatest hits The Stars Beneath My Feet became a gold disc, with over 100,000 copies sold.

"I've been touring for 20 years and, in reality, people only want to hear Back To Bedlam... so, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of that album, what better way to celebrate than to participate in the Back To Bedlam 20th Anniversary Tour!' he declares James. "I will play all the songs of Back To Bedlam in its entirety, from beginning to end, and I will add the best-known songs from later albums to finish. It will be, well, it pains me to say it... beautiful."
