James Arthur will release his fifth album, ‘Bitter Sweet Love’, early next year.
“The more albums you make and the more success you have, the more the pressure tends to be upon you,” says James. “But I genuinely felt like a kid again, just making music I loved, not worried about trying to please everyone.”
Since winning ‘The X Factor’ in 2012 and topping the charts with his cover of Shontelle’s Impossible, James has scored four UK Top 10 albums, with 2016’s ‘Back From The Edge’ hitting No. 1 and going Top 40 Stateside.
He released his most-recent project, ‘It’ll All Make Sense In The End’, in 2021; a lockdown record, produced at home, that leant heavily on programmed beats.
‘Bitter Sweet Love’ is out January 26 and available to pre-order now.
