James Bay has released his new single Wild Love following its debut as Hottest Record in the World on Radio 1’s Annie Mac show.

The track is the first new music from Bay since the release of his award-winning and multi-million selling debut album Chaos & The Calm, released in 2015. Wild Love was co-written and co-produced by Bay with Jon Green. Paul Epworth also helped produce the track.

 

Talking about Wild Love Bay says, “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 recognised I was being pinned down as ‘the intimate acoustic guitar guy’ I realised 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 songwriters, 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.”
