Singer and Songwriter James Blunt speaks to BBC Breakfast about his latest album Some Kind Of Trouble. It is his third studio album.

James was an officer in the Life Guards, a Cavalry regiment of the British Army. He served under NATO in Kosovo during the conflict there in 1999. When he left the army he turned his attention to music and is best known for his single You're Beautiful.

James started the interview by telling BBC Breakfast presenters Bill and Sian why his songs aren't as popular in the UK as elsewhere.
