James Bay recently announced details for an intimate North American headline tour and London show. Last week he released his brand new single “Wild Love.”
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 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.
James Bay is the definition of a modern day rock star. Following the release of his debut album Chaos And The Calm, featuring—“Hold Back The River” and “Let It Go”— BAY was nominated for “Best Rock Album,” Best Rock Song,” and “Best New Artist” at the 2016 Grammy Awards. In the UK, the record became the “Biggest New Artist Album Release” that year and has been certified Gold in the United States, Germany, Australia, Switzerland, platinum in Canada, Ireland, Netherlands, Sweden, double platinum in the UK and has sold nearly 3.5 million albums in global consumption, and 2.7 billion streams worldwide. Receiving the BRIT’s Critics Choice award in 2015, BAY has gone on to receive a win for “Best Male Solo Artist” at the BRITS, International Newcomer at the ECHO Awards, “Best New Act” & “Best Solo Artist” at the Q Awards, “Most Performed Work” at the Ivor Novello Awards and was nominated for “Best New” & “Best PUSH” at the MTV EMA’s and a MTV VMA for “Best New Act.” On the other side of the globe, he has received a nod for “Best International Artist” at the ARIA Awards in Australia. In addition to selling out shows and performing at festivals across the globe, BAY lent a new version of his song “Running” for the 2016 Sports Relief charity, is an advocate for the international non-profit Wateraid, designed his own signature line for Topman, and Epiphone created the Limited Edition James Bay Signature “1966 Century” Guitar in his name.
