James Blunt To Sing Taliban Into Surrender In Afghanistan

October 11, 2010
James Blunt To Sing Taliban Into Surrender In AfghanistanJames Blunt has claimed he can end the war in Afghanistan by singing the Taliban into surrendering.

The singer, a former Army captain who served in Kosovo, said he was “tired” of the conflict and wanted to “go out and fix it”.

“I'm going out there at Christmas time and will sing the Taliban into surrender,” he told the Daily Mirror. “If I can't do it, then who can?"

Blunt was meant to visit the troops six months ago but said his visit was abandoned when his plane broke down.

“I wanted to get in there and scare the Taliban,” he added.

Meanwhile, Blunt is set to release his new album ‘Some Kind Of Trouble’ next month. The follow-up to 2007's 'All The Lost Souls' was recorded in Los Angeles.
