NEW MUSIC: JAMES ARTHUR | EMILY

Ahead of his fourth studio album, "It'll All Make Sense In The End," which arrives on November 5, James has released his new single titled "Emily" - and it's classic James Arthur emotional power balladry. AIt goes without saying that James Arthur knows his way around a ballad -look at his track record. So enduring are his ballads that last year saw his 2016 album Train Wreck enter the Top 20 after going viral on TikTok. "Wrote a song for my future daughter if I ever have one," James posted online of the song. Is James about to become a dad? Not - but it wouldn't be the first time a pop star has predicted parenthood. In 2015, Charlie Simpson released "Little Hands" before he knew his wife was pregnant, and back in 2005, Britney Spears wrote "Someday (I Will Understand)" two weeks before learning she was pregnant with her first child. Watch this space. "Emily" is a letter to his future child, but it also serves as an emotional ode to the next generation. "Dear Emily, we're gonna live forever; happily, I'm gonna ask your mum to marry me, but there are some things you need to know..." James sings, stripping everything back very effectively to little more than a guitar line and a vocal. Expect to hear a lot more from James Arthur over the next few months. As well as his new single and upcoming album, James is touring the UK in early 2022.
