James Arthur surprised his fans across the pond with a performance of his song ‘September’ on The Late Late Show with James Corden. It’s the British singer’s first appearance on the US chat show since 2017 when he performed his record-breaking hit ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’.
Now he’s back with his first TV performance of ‘September’, which was released in June and followed with an incredible music video. He’s come a long way in the past four years, but his voice is still breathtakingly beautiful as ever and at this point it feels like James is incapable of writing a bad song.
James also stopped by for a virtual chat from his ‘gaming den’ back in the UK where he spoke about his upcoming album. It’ll All Make Sense In The End was initially set for release on 8th October, but we’re going to have to wait a little longer as the date has now been pushed back to 5th November.
When asked about the album cover depicting a young version of himself, James spoke about the inspiration behind the record:
“During the lockdown, it was a time of introspection [for many artists] and I was doing bits of therapy and realised that a lot of the reason why I’d hit walls in my life so often were because of things from childhood – trauma or whatever – deep-rooted issues that I needed to maybe address.”
“This little lockdown project that I ended up doing, it felt like the right sort of artwork. Basically if I could say something to my younger self, I’d say don’t worry about it – it’ll all make sense in the end.”
