James Blunt's says his new album 'Moon Landing' is honest and features heartfelt songs written specifically for his own fans

James Blunt's new album is "honest".

The 'I'll Be Your Man' hitmaker is releasing his fourth studio album 'Moon Landing', which features heartfelt songs written specifically for his own fans.

Blunt believes the LP is a step away from his third album, 'Some Kind of Trouble', which he produced because it was his job to do so.

He said: "My first album was done out of love, joy and a pleasure, and was a thrill to do. On the second one you're riding out this wave and by the third you're treating it like a job, perhaps. So when it came to this record I just wanted it to be honest and not written for any audience but my own."

The 39-year-old musician lives on the famous party island of Ibiza where he is a regular club goer and although he is constantly questioned about when he is going to make a dance album he insists he is going to stick to his trademark acoustic tracks which are inspired by romance.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, he said: "People ask me when I am going to make my Ibiza album but I don't write those sort of songs. I write sensitive and romantic songs as we all have days isolation, misery, sadness and insecurities."
