"So Far Gone" is the second single from English singer-songwriter James Blunt's third studio album, Some Kind of Trouble.[2] The single was released as a digital download single release exclusively in the United Kingdom on 3 January 2011.[1] A live version of the song, recorded at Metropolis Studios, was included on the OpenDisc feature of Some Kind of Trouble. Blunt performed the song live for the first time on Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford on 28 January 2011. Australian radio stations have picked up the song and are beginning to give it airplay as of March 2011.

Music video

The video, directed by Marc Klasfeld,[3] for the track premiered on Blunt's official YouTube account on 13 December 2010.[4]


Matthew Horton from BBC Music said that: "Best Laid Plans teems with cliché and some David Gilmour-lite guitar noodles that also rear up on So Far Gone."[5] March Hirsh from Boston Globe said: "A few songs - midtempo anthem "So Far Gone,'' quavery failed-romance ballad "Best Laid Plans'' -- fill up the earphones well enough but don't bother pushing an inch deeper to engage the head."[6]
