THE ROCK SONG OF THE DAY IS: JAMES BLUNT - HIGH

"High", by James Blunt
"High" is a pop rock song written by British singer James Blunt and Ricky Ross for Blunt's debut album Back to Bedlam.

The song was produced by Tom Rothrock and Jimmy Hogarth and received a mixed reception from music critics. It was released as the first single in the autumn of 2004 and failed to make an impact on the United Kingdom singles chart, peaking well outside the top seventy-five. Following the success of "You're Beautiful", "High" was re-released in the autumn of 2005, and became a top twenty hit worldwide, charting at number three in Italy and at number sixteen in Britain.

The single was released initally on two physical formats. CD1 includes an exclusive non-album recording entitled "Sugar Coated", which was written by Blunt and Sacha Skarbek. CD2 also includes two exclusive non-album recordings, entitled "This Twilight Garden" and "Play", as well as two remixes of "High". The re-issue of the single was released on three physical formats. CD1 includes a live recording of "In a Little While", a popular song by U2. The recording was made on August 5, 2005 at the BBC Radio 1 Unleashed Music Festival in Cornwall. CD2 includes an exclusive US radio session of "You're Beautiful", plus the video and making-of footage for "High". The 7" Vinyl includes an exclusive track entitled "Butterfly".
