Bluntly speaking

James Blunt is in good spirits despite having been on the road since January 2010. Clearly excited to be back in Singapore, the musician is all smiles when Sands Style catches up with him before his sell-out concert at the Grand Theater at Marina Bay Sands, laughing and joking with a highly likeable enthusiasm that seems a far departure from his trademark tortured-soul sound.

 “It’s funny, because people look at pictures of musicians in magazines and see the clothes they are wearing and the seemingly glamorous lifestyle they lead, but the reality of being a musician is a completely different world. Normally I sleep on the tour bus; my bunk is the size of a coffin, and my drummer sleeps above me. There are 10 men on that bus so it’s not easy. It’s like a 14-month camping trip,” he laughs. “Singapore is great because I actually get to sleep in a proper bed.”
