James Bay will release his second album Electric Light on 18th May via Virgin EMI it has been announced.
The album is the follow-up to his multi-million selling, award-winning debut Chaos & The Calm. Ahead of Electric Light, Bay has released new track Pink Lemonade, which premiered on Apple Music’s Beats 1.
Fans who pre-order Electric Light will get Wild Love and Pink Lemonade as instant downloads.
Talking about Electric Light Bay said, “If I had to describe my first album visually it would probably be a flame – while this new album is about a real sonic and artistic evolution for me. The feeling of a 100 watt bulb expanding and brightening is what I envisioned. Electric Light came to my mind and I knew it was perfect.”
The singer-songwriter co-wrote and co-produced Electric Light with longtime friend and collaborator Jon Green and Paul Epworth (Adele).
