James Blunt has denied that new song 'Annie' is directed at his ex-songwriting partner Amanda Ghost.
Ghost, who helped pen the number one single 'You're Beautiful' with the popstar, has responded to the allegations the track is an attack on her by insisting she is a success in her own right. She is quoted as saying: "I'd hardly have said my dreams were 'crumbling'. James has had one number one hit, but I've since gone on to have two more."
The lyrics to Blunt's new track from his All The Lost Souls album include the line: "Annie, you had your dream on the bright lights/ You're just not going very far / Your dreams are crumbling." However, a spokesperson for the singer denied the song was a veiled attack on Ghost commenting: "'Annie' has nothing to do with Miss Ghost. James makes it a rule never to disclose the inspiration for his music."
