‘Quite Miss Home’ is tuneful, inspirational and driving while the lyrics are deep.

James Arthur was the victor of the British X Factor’s ninth season in 2012, winning the public vote with a rendition of Shontelle’s rousing ballad “Impossible.”

 

Born in Middlesbrough, England, Arthur had written and performed in various bands since the age of 15, as well as performing solo in pubs and bars in his hometown.

 

Many of the singer/songwriter’s early recordings illustrate the pop/rock and hip-hop influences that helped shape his unique voice and style.

 

Before he appeared on The X Factor, Arthur made it into the final 200 contestants of the U.K.’s The Voice TV series in 2011, without managing to progress any further.

 

A year later, he auditioned for The X Factor, where he sang judge Tulisa Contostavlos’ song “Young” and subsequently made it through the boot-camp round and into the live shows.

 

From then on, Arthur showcased his considerable talents and slowly improved under the watchful eye of mentor Nicole Sherzinger.

 

He was pitted against Jahméne Douglas and Christopher Maloney in the final round of the contest, where he impressed the audience with performances of Cy Grant’s “Feeling Good,” Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love,” and Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On.”

 

The final song of the evening — the version of Shontelle’s “Impossible” — was released immediately after Arthur was announced as the winner and made it to number one in the U.K. and Ireland, while also charting across Europe.

 

He then went on tour with the X Factor show, playing across the U.K. in huge, sold-out arenas such as Wembley and the Birmingham LG.

 

After his X Factor success, Arthur worked alongside singer/songwriter Labrinth and Graham Stack (JLS, Take That, Westlife) in preparation for his debut album. He put out the eponymous release later that year; the album featured “Impossible” and “Roses” (with Emeli Sandé), as well as follow-up singles “You’re Nobody ‘Til Somebody Loves You,” “Recovery,” and “Get Down.”

 

Arthur departed from Syco Music the following year and briefly returned to the scene with an independent release, the rap mixtape All the World’s a Stage.

 

The singer/songwriter made a return in 2016, signing a record deal with Columbia and issuing his second full-length effort, Back from the Edge.

 

The stripped-down and reflective record was led by the singles “Say You Won’t Let Go” and “Remember Who I Was.”

 

The next year, he was featured on Rudimental’s “Sun Comes Up” and issued his own solo single, “Naked.” Arthur released a string of singles in 2018, including “Rewrite the Stars,” a duet with Anne-Marie that was featured on The Greatest Showman: Reimagined. 2019 brought the solo single “Falling Like the Stars,” along with the Ty Dolla $ign collaboration “Treehouse,” which also featured Shotty Horroh. Both singles landed on YOU, the singer/songwriter’s outward-facing third album, which released in October that year.

Lyrics:

 

I’m in the kitchen while you smoke outside

You’re careful not to let the smoke inside

I always tell you it’s poison

But I know it helps you take the edge off the day

We get a drink before it’s closing time

The one on high street with the blinking sign

All of these memories feel poignant

I won’t be there to see the snow melt away

Oh, yeah I’ve been gone on business

I’ve gotta make some money

I really feel the distance

 

And I quite miss home

And I miss you telling me

To leave my shoes at the door

‘Cos you just swept the floor and the dirt drives you crazy

Yeah I quite miss home

‘Cos it feels like poetry

When the rain falls down on the window

While you’re in my arms and we’re watching the TV

Yeah I quite miss home

Yeah I quite miss home

 

I smell you cooking from the living room

And then I tell you that I love your food

I know it doesn’t come easy

But you know it reminds me where I’m from

Oh, I’m in another city

I got nobody with me

And it just hit me

 

That I quite miss home

And I miss you telling me

To leave my shoes at the door

‘Cos you just swept the floor and the dirt drives you crazy

Yeah I quite miss home

‘Cos it feels like poetry

And the rain falls down on the window

While you’re in my arms and we’re watching the TV

Yeah I quite miss home

Yeah I quite miss home

 

And I quite miss home

Yeah I missed you telling me

To leave my shoes at the door

‘Cos you just swept the floor and the dirt drives you crazy

Oh I just miss home

‘Cos it feels like poetry

As the rain falls down on the window

While you’re in my arms and we’re watching the TV

 

Oh I miss home, yeah I quite miss home

Oh I miss home, yeah I quite miss home
