James Bay has returned with a brand new single, “Wild Love“. 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. Listen below.
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.”
Bay also announced details for an intimate North American headline tour and London show, which will see him perform at intimate venues coast-to-coast kicking off in the US March 25th.
