The musician has become somewhat of a national treasure as of late, known for his deadpan comedic Tweets and self-deprecating humour. So, what does he have to say about this great news? – “In hindsight, I’m not sure letting them film this was a good idea.”

The documentary follows Blunt across Europe, filmed on the road during his 2022 Greatest Hits Tour and is described as “Spinal Tap meets Alan Partridge”. It’s set to be “a behind the scenes, brutally honest story of a painfully self-aware, endlessly touring musician, for whom persistence eventually prevails”.
The documentary will be distributed by production company Lorton Entertainment, known for award-winning Oasis documentary Supersonic and soon-to-air George Ezra film End-to-End.
An official release date has not yet been confirmed but it looks as though the documentary is set to give us another dose of the You’re Beautiful singer’s signature awkward dry humour as well as a never-seen-before intimate insight into his career journey.
