James Blunt doesn't care about Radio 1 snub
Singer-songwriter James Blunt has revealed that he doesn't care that BBC Radio 1 haven't given much airplay to his new single, 'Bonfire Heart', because he's 'more of an album seller'.
Speaking exclusively to EntertainmentWise about the song and the reception it has received, Blunt explained that it's neither here nor there that they aren't paying much attention to promoting the single because he's more concerned with album sales:
"No, it’s just one of the reasons I’m not normally a single seller because Radio 1 will drive single sales and why in the UK I’m an album seller. It’s a different thing for me overseas as you can see from the charts."
Despite the lack of support in his home country, he added that he's enjoying great success in other countries:
"I was sent a picture yesterday of [Bonfire Heart] at number one in the iTunes charts in shed loads of countries. It’s been great fun, it’s really been a fantastic week and it’s really amazing to see. You never know what’s going to happen and I’m just enjoying the support and I feel really grateful for that."
Blunt's new album 'Moon Landing' is due to be released on October 21.
