Is James Arthur Retiring?

James Arthur recently released two new singles "You Deserve Better" and "At My Weakest" ahead of his third album, which may be his last.

James understandably created shockwaves with a recent tweet in which he wrote pointblank: “After this album I’m retiring. Love, James x.”

He hasn’t expanded on that statement since or directly explained why, but a later tweet may have added a bit of clarity.

After thanking a crowd for their energy, he added: “You reminded me how much I’m in love with the live aspect of the music business.”

So perhaps the business side and grueling aspects of recording and marketing have taken their toll on him or hopefully he was just being a bit dramatic.
