Following the release of his debut album Chaos And The Calm in 2015 and major tours around the world, James Bay found himself being tugged in a variety of new directions as the first songs for his second record rapidly started to emerge, he not only knew he had to embrace the unexpected places his ideas were pulling him, but he was truly excited by the possibilities that lay ahead.
Fast-forward to the release of his much anticipated second album Electric Light.
Bay explains of the energy that underpins Electric Light that 'There's passion and fire and that's what I'm chasing on this record'. Anthem-in-waiting 'Wild Love' is a key example of how these new sonic ideas have flowed naturally into Bay's own music. With its stirring emotions and yearning passion its spirit is pure James Bay, yet it's laid over a bold musical soundscape.
With Electric Light, James Bay solidified that he is the definition of a modern day rock star.
