James Morrison is to release his third studio album, 'The Awakening', on September 26
James Morrison has announced his third album, 'The Awakening'.
The 'You Make It Real' hitmaker - who recently parted ways with Polydor, his label of six years - has confirmed his third record will be released on September 26.
Writing on his twitter page, he said: "OK, so the news is out! My third album, The Awakening, is out Sept 26 (sic)."
James recently admitted he had to consciously "try to forget" some of the things he'd learned about making music for his third album, as he wanted it to return to his roots and not produce something a record which is not too over-commercial.
He told BANG Showbiz: "It's my favourite piece of work so far, I tried to forget what I'd learned before and do what I wanted to do in the first place, but I didn't have any experience to do.
"So I made an album that felt real and not over-commercial and tried to just write good songs."
'The Awakening' - the follow-up to 2008's 'Songs for You, Truths for Me' - has been produced by former Suede guitarist Bernard Butler.
