James Arthur Releases New Song “Blindside”
British singer-songwriter James Arthur released a new song “Blindside” on August 4, 2023.
It is his third single of 2023, following “Work with My Love” with Alok and “A Year Ago”.
The track was written by James Arthur, Rick Parkhouse, George Tizzard, and Wayne Hector. Produced by Red Triangle and Steven Solomon.
James Arthur said of the song, “Blindside is a song I've wanted to write for years, about falling in love with the right person at the wrong time. It's an energetic song with a sad lyric and it really suited this new rawer style I was after.”
The accompanying music video was directed by Tim Mattia, who also directed the previous video for “A Year Ago”.
- Tim Mattia said, “Blindside is such a raw and emotional track, and when James and I spoke about how it came to be written, and the meaning behind the lyrics, I immediately knew we had to capture some epic performances from him, carrying on with the Americana feel of our previous video for 'A Year Ago.' We tied in a series of dramatic and emotional narrative scenes, showing the sudden loss of love in relationships, and a scene in which James gets literally more and more bloodied and bruised as the song progresses – the physical embodiment of his emotional pain.”
