The long-running dispute between James Blunt and former producer Lukas Burton is almost certain to end up in court, as EMI and Blunt seek a High Court judgement on Burton's claims that he wrote a bunch of songs on Blunt's first album. Burton is claiming responsibility for writing You're Beautiful, but then who would?
Burton is sharing his side of the relationship with Blunt with anyone who'll listen:
Burton goes on to describe the moment when Blunt took the songs he'd buffed to a new management and cut him out as a moment of "abject treachery".
In public, team Blunt are doing little more than confirming the existence of the claim.
