Listen: James Bay's Sexy New Track 'Wild Love'

 

James Bay has ditched the hair AND his signature hat in favor of a brand new sound – and a new song, “Wild Love” which debuted yesterday. In an interview with the BBC, James admits “The hat and the hair was a visual that came with a sort of sonic signature, which wasn't breaking the mould. But as soon as I wrote the first couple of songs for this record, I went, 'Well, this isn't the hat and the hair guy.'"

It’s clear that James has learned to use a synth and isn’t afraid of the autotune – and told NME last year that the second record was influenced by lots of listening to Lorde and Frank Ocean.

Bay also announced a brief tour for April of 2018 – but don’t hold your breath, no Austin (or even Texas dates for that matter) just yet.
