James Blunt and Roots Manuva collaboration is on

Acts are serious about working together

James Blunt and Roots Manuva collaboration is on
Roots Manuva and James Blunt are set to head into the studio for an unlikely musical meeting of minds.

As previously reported Roots Manuva said he wanted to collaborate with Blunt - though appeared to be joking by referring to the singer as "what's his name".

However asked by BBC 6Music if he was joking Manuva said: "No, no, we're sorting that out, he knows."

However he is still unclear as to how the team-up will work, saying: "We'll just get in the studio, have a few wines, eat some cake and go for it."

Fans may not have to wait that long either with Manuva - real name Rodney Smith - explaining, "It [the collaboration] could be pretty soon, I've got some time off coming up soon so I'm gonna pursue it, I'm definitely gonna try and get something in the bag."
