Bonfire Heart is the first single from British singer-songwriter James Blunt's fourth studio album, Moon Landing. The song has been written by Blunt, in collaboration with OneRepublic's lead singer Ryan Tedder, with whom Blunt has previously worked for the single "Stay the Night".

The song debuted at number six and climbed to number four in the UK Singles Chart.

Promotion[edit]

Blunt's record label sent out an email notifying fans of the song's release, only to later discover they had inadvertently emailed a much larger mailing list. Blunt later took to Twitter to apologise for emailing "the whole of the UK by mistake".[2] The email invited its recipients to visit Blunt's SoundCloud page, where the song could be streamed for free. The song had its first radio broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on 29 July, with a lyric video being uploaded to Blunt's YouTube page later that day.

An accompanying music video directed by Vaughan Arnell was released on 28 August 2013.[3]

On 7 October, Blunt performed the song live on the results show of the Australian X-Factor.

On 5 November, Blunt performed the song live on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

On 28 February 2014, Blunt, after being interviewed, performed the song live on Skavlan.
