James Blunt will release his new album Moon Landing in October after taking a year away from the music industry.

The 39-year-old star explained that his fourth album will be "back to basics," saying: ''This is a much more personal album, and also quite back to basics.''

Blunt revealed he will release the title track Moon Landing as a single and the whole album will feature production from Tom Rothrock, who worked on Back to Bedlam in 2004.

Speaking about the album, he said: ''It's about me and Tom, the producer, finding where the story all started and where we are now.''

Contact Music further quoted the star as saying: ''I've just finished my new album in Los Angeles, and am so excited. It's a really beautiful sounding record, full of loneliness and longing. There's been a lot of love put into making it and I couldn't be happier with how it sounds... I really hope you like it too.''

Moon Landing is set for release on October 21.
