Today James Blunt unveiled the first single from his fourth studio album, "Moon Landing," due out November 5. The single, "Bonfire Heart" is an infectious, melancholy four minutes that was produced and co-written by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, who has worked with Maroon 5 and Adele in the past.

"Moon Landing" includes work by a number of other impressive producers, including Martin Terefe, who has contributed to successful cuts by KT Tunstall and Jason Mraz and Tom Rothrock, who produced Blunt's massively successful 2004 debut album "Back to Bedlam."

However, The Guardian reported today that details of Blunt's latest work were leaked early. By him. This morning the "You're Beautiful" singer emailed information about "Moon Landing" and "Bonfire Heart" to thousands of inboxes all over the U.K., and some in Australia.

Warner Music claims that the mistake had to do with Blunt accidentally emailing subscribers to other Warner Music artists' mailing lists.
