A music video was released on 26 May 2011, and featured footage of Blunt's Some Kind of Trouble tour.
Marc Hirsh from Boston Globe said that: "Blunt’s happy on those Train tracks: He pulls the same trick nine songs later (minus the whoas) on "I’ll Be Your Man.'’ (“So baby come over from the end of the sofa,’’ the romantic sings on that one, too lazy to move five feet on his own.)Stephen Thomas Erlewine from Allmusic was positive, saying that: "Blunt’s strength is his embrace of soft rock cliché, whether he’s cheerfully bouncing along on "I’ll Be Your Man". Colin Somerville from Scotsman said positively that: "I'll Be Your Man is Blunt getting in touch with his inner teen idol, all chugging acoustic guitar and an excuse to twitch the pelvis." Simon Price from The Independent was negative, saying that: "When he tries to do "seductive" ("I'll Be Your Man") it's embarrassing." Mike Schiller from PopMatters said that: "“I’ll Be Your Man" could be John Cougar Mellencamp. Maybe such similarities could be chalked up to homage, to an artist wanting to pay tribute to those that made him such a success, but these songs are prototypical of their influences to the point of caricature", he completed.
