James Bay has returned with a new single, Wild Love.

The track, which the singer-songwriter co-wrote and produced with Jon Green, with additional production by Paul Epworth, is his first new material since 2015's 'Chaos & The Calm'.

Speaking about his new sound and song, he said:

“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."

“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.”

Alongside the new single, Bay has announced a London show at Electric Brixton on March 15. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on February 16. Following the show he will hop across the pond for a short North American tour.
