“I cannot find the words to say how excited I am to get back out on the road again on tour in 2024. My new album was incredibly fun to write and record, and some of the new songs will undoubtedly get you up on your feet and dancing again.

“I’m looking forward to crowd surfing at a venue near you,” said Blunt.

The album’s first single arrived recently in the shape of the upbeat banger “Beside You”.
