James Bay Shares Julia Michaels Collaboration Peer Pressure

Wednesday, 27 February 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

James Bay and Julia Michaels have shared a collaborative single, Peer Pressure. 

The acoustic duet serves as the first new music from the Hold Back The River singer since the release of his sophomore album, 'Electric Light', in early 2018. Michaels, meanwhile, put out her 'Inner Monologue' EP at the end of January.

Produced by Joel Little, the track finds the pair singing about letting your guard down for the right person. Bay said:

"I think it can be easy to stay very guarded in life, and not let anybody in, past your personal armor. These guards we all put up every day for different reasons. In writing Peer Pressure Julia and I wanted to talk about how, when the right person comes along, they can break through any armor and with love, get straight to you. It’s about that person who, no matter how much of a guard you hold up, finds their way through to you. Working with Julia was one of those magical moments when the writing felt so special and the subject felt like a unique take on a topic which is most commonly discussed negatively. It’s like sometimes your peers are the ones who bring you out of yourself."

Check out the intimate live video below.

Bay will support Ed Sheeran on his summer European tour with Zara Larsson and The Darkness. He also tours North America this spring.
