James Bay has released an acoustic video for the first single from his second EP, Let It Go.
Only available in the U.S. If You Ever Want to Be in Love is a bright and unforgettable anthem that showcases his immense range. The official follow-up to his critically acclaimed U.S. debut, last year’s The Dark of the Morning, If You Ever Want to Be in Love is the lead single off of the Let It Go EP. Here in the UK, Let It Go has already hit number 1 on the iTunes Top Singer/Songwriter Albums Chart while the title track rose to number 1 overall on Hype Machine twice.
Let It Go EP also features the heartfelt title track which stands emblematic of his songwriting prowess and artful lyricism. For both Let It Go and If You Ever Want To Be In Love, he enlisted the production talents of Jacquire King [Kings of Leon, Of Monsters and Men, Tom Waits] while mixing was handled by Michael Brauer [John Mayer, Coldplay].
Bay is also gearing up to support Irish sensation Hozier on his U.S. tour this fall. 2014 also sees him make his debut at prestigious UK festivals Glastonbury on June 27 and T in the Park on July 11. Bay remains a magnetic performer on stage, consistently captivating audiences with his powerful presence.
James Bay hails from the tiny town of Hitchin but he cut his teeth during rapturous sets at London’s famed Blue Flowers Club as well as Notting Hill Arts Club in addition to supporting both Laura Mvula and Rae Morris. It was at one of these very performances that a fan filmed his set and shared the video on YouTube. The video quickly caught the attention of Republic Records who ended up flying Bay to New York and signing him on the spot.
