    ANNOUNCES SPRING HEADLINE TOUR ACROSS NORTH AMERICA


    Today, three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated and BRIT Award-winning multiplatinum singer, songwriter, and artist James Bay returns with his brand new single “Wild Love.”

    Get it HERE via Republic Records and check out the song’s lyric video HERE.

    After teasing fans for months online, “Wild Love” marks Bay’s first new music since his internationally acclaimed, GRAMMY® Award-nominated debut Chaos & The Calm (2015). The song premiered today on BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac Show as her “Hottest Record In The World.” Composed in East London’s Baltic Studios, Bay co-wrote and co-produced the track with longtime friend and collaborator Jon Green and brought onboard Paul Epworth [Adele, Florence and The Machine] to add final production elements.

    While some fans might call “Wild Love” a new sound for Bay, on this Bay explains: “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.

    On the song Bay stated: “Wild Love is about the experience of falling for someone. Something you can feel immediately when you meet them for the first time, or which rekindles throughout a relationship. It’s also about yearning for someone – whether that’s the person you can’t keep your eyes off across the room, or in my experience, the person you don’t stop thinking about wherever you are in the world.”

    Today, Bay also announced details for an intimate North American headline tour and London show, which sees him perform at intimate venues coast-to-coast kicking off in the US March 25th.
