JAMES Blunt has announced an exclusive live performance at London’s Koko on September 5 – his only headline UK show of 2007.

The gig is intended to celebrate the release of his new single 1973 on September 3 and will see Blunt perform tracks from his forthcoming sophomore album All The Lost Souls, due on September 17.

Tickets are sure to be in hot demand but are ONLY available through an online lottery via the singer’s own website.

To apply, register your details at www.jamesblunt.com from today, July 31.

450 people will then be randomly selected on August 17 and given the chance to purchase two tickets (costing £20 each, plus booking).

Blunt will perform the concert to an audience of just 1,500 together with his keyboardist Paul Beard, guitarist Ben Castle, bassist Malcolm Moore and drummer Karl Brazil.

Recorded & mixed in Los Angeles with acclaimed producer Tom Rothrock (Back To Bedlam), All The Lost Souls is inspired by the iconic sounds of the ‘70s.

Recently named Radio 2’s Record of the Week, 1973 will be available on 2-track CD, 7” vinyl and Maxi CD and each format features new bonus material, including the new video directed by PR Brown (Smashing Pumpkins).

In the three years since Blunt released his debut LP, Back To Bedlam – the best-selling album of the millennium – it has sold 11 million worldwide, going No. 1 in 18 countries and top 10 in 35.

He was nominated for 5 Grammy Awards, landed the first No. 1 US single (You’re Beautiful) by a British act since Elton John’s Candle in the Wind and won two prestigious BRIT Awards.
