James Blunt has called time in his musical career, saying he wants to “take some time out for myself”. It seems that the former Queen’s guard, who saw action in Kosovo, has no interest in maintaining his career as a musician and recently told The Daily Mail that he has no further plans to write music.

Speaking to a reporter from the paper, Blunt said:

“I haven’t got any plans to do more songwriting. I have been chilling out since I finished my world tour and I’ve spent a lot of time in Ibiza.”



James Blunt rose to fame with his 2005 album, “Back to Bedlam,” which featured hit tracks “You’re Beautiful” and the aforementioned “Goodbye My Lover.” The British singer began his music career after serving as an officer in the British Army’s Life Guards, including completing a stint under NATO in Kosovo in 1999.

Blunt also released two other albums after “Back to Bedlam,” 2007’s “All the Lost Souls,” and 2010’s “Some Kind of Trouble.” While both were generally well-received, “Back to Bedlam,” was far and away the most successful, selling 11 million copies and earning him five Grammy nominations including Best New Artist, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album.
