Bitter Sweet Love: James Arthur's 5th Studio Release

1:34:00 PM

In his latest record, James showcases his musical prowess with tracks like ‘A Year Ago’, ‘Blindside’, and ‘Just Us’, among others. The album, titled Bitter Sweet Love, presents thirteen pieces of top-notch music, marking James's return to peak form.

The singles from the album have been gaining traction on radio waves for months. James recently made appearances on popular TV shows like Sunday Brunch and Michael McIntyre’s Big Show on BBC 1. Additionally, he delighted fans with acoustic sets during in-store performances across the UK.

James embarked on a journey to find the right producers for his album. After trying out various collaborators, he found his match in Steve Solomon, known for their successful collaboration on the 2016 hit ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’. Steve joined James in L.A. for the final touches, and later, they completed the album at Miloco Studios in South London. The result is a mature and deep collection of songs, showcasing James's exceptional songwriting skills.

2024 will also see a major world tour, in which multiple dates including UK arenas, sold out instantly, including London’s Wembley Arena, with The O2 now added. This was then followed by the announcement of a massive homecoming show at Middlesborough’s Riverside Stadium on Saturday 8th June 2024. This will be James’ biggest headline show to date and will see him joined by special guests McFly and Lauran Hibberd.

James is one of the world’s biggest streaming artists, with over 38 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone. James has scored 4 top 10 albums, with 2016’s Back From The Edge hitting the Number 1 spot and over his career has collaborated with the likes of Anne-Marie, Sigala, Rudimental, Marshmello & many more.

‘Say You Won't Let Go’ became his breakthrough hit in the US. It was officially the UK's most streamed song in 2016 and has gone on to be enjoyed via 4 billion streams while the song's official video has achieved 1.5 billion views on YouTube. Earlier this year, the track became his first RIAA Diamond Single with 10 million certified units – making James one of just 100 recipients of an RIAA Diamond Single certification in the programme's history.

Other huge hit singles include: ‘Impossible’, ‘Can I Be Him’, ‘Sun Comes Up’, ‘Naked’, ‘Empty Space’, ‘Rewrite The Stars’, ‘Falling Like the Stars’, ‘Train Wreck’ and ‘Lasting Lover’, which are all certified platinum records. The song ‘Cars Outside’ off the new album is currently becoming another global hit for James.

James Arthur’s fifth studio album, ‘Bitter Sweet Love’ is out now on all digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Entertainment/Columbia Records.
