“Veering from lubricious, Prince-meets-Sesame-Street funk-pop to Blondie-style new wave, [his] new songs are both wildly eclectic and very catchy. Sexier and more self-assured than his debut.” – Q Magazine

20 FEBRUARY 2018 (Toronto, ON) – Three-time GRAMMY Award-nominated and BRIT Award-winning multiplatinum singer, songwriter, and artist James Bay, has debuted the accompanying music video for his acclaimed new single, Wild Love. Featuring co-star Natalia Dyer of Stranger Things, the video begins with a close-up of Bay, before following him through a crowded dance floor where he first sees Dyer, and the two lock eyes. In addition to releasing the “Wild Love” video this week, it was also announced today that Bay will appear as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on March 10.

Upon discussing the video and working with Natalia, Bay says, "It was such a pleasure to work with Natalia on the ‘Wild Love’ set. She's a lovely person, a huge talent and it was great hanging with her while making this video. I'm also a massive Stranger Things fan so tried everything in my power not to fan boy too hard."

Released on February 8 via Republic Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, “Wild Love” has already reached 4 million Spotify streams and counting, in addition to racking up 3/4 million YouTube views for the initial lyric video. It has earned critical acclaim around the globe from NME, Forbes, Harpers Bazaar, Time, GQ, Rolling Stone, People, Clash, Billboard, and many more.

After teasing fans for months online, “Wild Love” marks Bay’s first new music since his internationally acclaimed, GRAMMY Award-nominated debut Chaos & The Calm (2015). The song premiered on BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac Show as her “Hottest Record In The World.” Composed in East London’s Baltic Studios, Bay co-wrote and co-produced the track with longtime friend and collaborator Jon Green and brought onboard Paul Epworth [Adele, Florence and The Machine] to add final production elements.
