On the re-release, James Blunt said, “I’ve released seven studio albums, but ‘Back To Bedlam’ was the one people actually bought. So on its 20th anniversary, the record label and I thought we should repackage it with some early demos, and milk it for all it’s worth". 

He also added, “It was one of the biggest-selling albums of the ’00s, so here’s hoping it makes a dent in the ’20s'".
