See James Bay Play An Amazing Solo Session At Radio X

31 December 2018, 12:10

Watch the British singer-songwriter perform Wild Love and Pink Lemonade from his acclaimed second album, Electric Light - plus a classic track.

James Bay has released his second studio album Electric Light. It’s the follow-up to 2015’s chart-topping debut Chaos and the Calm and has been described by the Hitchin-born singer-songwriter as “a real sonic and artistic evolution for me”.

To mark the release of the Electric Light album, James came into the Radio X studios to perform a couple of new tracks from the album, lit only by some electric light bulbs.

James recently told Radio X’s Gordon Smart about the inspiration behind the single Wild Love:

"It's a bit of a love at first sight thing. I reckon that happens to people.

"They catch and lock eyes with someone across the room for the first time and it's magic and everything that follows is fantastic."

James also performed an excellent solo version of Hold Back The River, from his debut LP Chaos And The Calm.

Bay’s second studio album was co-written and co-produced with longtime friend and collaborator Jon Green, before the pair brought onboard Paul Epworth - who previously worked with Adele and Florence and the Machine - to finish off the record.
