"I cannot find the words to say how excited I am to get back out on the road again on tour in 2024” James said. “My new album was incredibly fun to write and record, and some of the new songs will undoubtedly get you up on your feet and dancing again.  I’m looking forward to crowd surfing at a venue near you!”

The album’s first single arrived recently in the shape of the upbeat banger ‘Beside You’. Directed by Craig Bingham, the video evokes memories of James’ past. Meeting versions of himself throughout his life, the video sees James embrace the characters of his past self, as he moves forward.

Who We Used To Be is James’ first studio album since the acclaimed, top 3 Once Upon A Mind in 2019. This time out he has worked with a variety of producers including Jonny Coffer, Red Triangle, Jack & Coke and Steve Robson. His recent greatest hits collection, The Stars Beneath My Feet, went Gold selling over 100,000 copies.
