James Bay is back with a new single “Wild Love,” his first new song since his 2015 debut album Chaos & The Calm. Watch the official lyric video below.
“I know some of this new sound was not apparent on my first album – there were hints, perhaps – but I think my new music helps to paint a fuller picture of who I am. As soon as I recognized I was being pinned down as ‘the intimate acoustic guitar guy’ I realized I knew I had to push myself musically. I want it as part of my arsenal, but I don’t want that solely to define me. I’m not there yet, but hope that this new music can do for singer-songwriter, loosely, what Drake and Chance The Rapper are doing for their genre: tearing up the rule book.
Along with the new release, James Bay is hitting the road again for an intimate North American run kicking off March 25th in Seattle, WA. See dates below.
