GRAMMY WINNER JAMES BAY'S NEW 'ELECTRIC LIGHT'

James Bay 'Electric Light'



NEW YORK, NY — Three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated and BRIT Award-winning multiplatinum singer-songwriter James Bay will release his anxiously awaited second full-length album, Electric Light on Friday, May 18, 2018 via [Republic Records].



Starting today fans can pre-order Electric Light which will unlock an instant download of critically acclaimed single “Wild Love” and brand-new track “Pink Lemonade.” Premiering as Apple Music Beats 1 “World Record” today, “Pink Lemonade” illuminates another shade of Electric Light - showcasing Bay’s evolution with a louder sound and transistor guitars. The song comes out right in time for his NBC Saturday Night Live debut performance on Saturday, March 10th with host Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us, Black Panther). Check out “Pink Lemonade”.



After selling out his spring headline tour, Bay is also announcing details for his expanded North American and European run. Adding nearly 30 new dates, the tour takes Bay across North America and Europe making stops at New York’s Beacon Theater on September 18th and Los Angeles’ The Greek Theatre on October 7th. Fan pre-sale for these newly added shows will begin on Wednesday, March 14th at 10am local time, with the public on-sale taking place on Friday, March 16th at 10am local time. Fans can gain access to pre-sale tickets with purchase of any item from shop.jamesbay.com and every pair of online tickets comes with a copy of Electric Light (offer valid for US residents only). Tickets can be found at www.jamesbay.com.



Aspiring to push his own musical boundaries with Electric Light Bay noted: “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.”



Composed in East London’s Baltic Studios, Bay co-wrote and co-produced Electric Light with longtime friend and collaborator Jon Green and brought onboard Paul Epworth [Adele, Florence and The Machine] to add final production elements to the record. Released on February 8th, single “Wild Love” has already reached 10 million Spotify streams and counting in addition to racking up nearly 3 million views from its official music video co-starring Natalia Dyer of Stranger Things. Watch the “Wild Love” music video here. Across the globe it has earned widespread critical acclaim from NME, Forbes, Harpers Bazaar, Time, GQ UK, Rolling Stone, People, Clash, Billboard, and more.

STANAJ




STANAJ released his debut EP The Preview [LAVA/Republic Records] ]—which premiered exclusively on Complex—at all digital retailers last August. Upon its release, the EP entered the Top 10 on iTunes pop chart. Following an incredible debut performance of the song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which garnered public praise from fellow guest Justin Timberlake, the EP soared into the Top 15 on iTunes Overall Albums Chart.


 Timberlake’s cosign follows a bevy of social media endorsements from additional superstars such as Drake, Chris Brown, NBA athlete Brandon Jennings, Kim Kardashian West, Russell Simmons, and more. His follow up single, “Romantic” (NOTD Remix), became a breakout hit on Spotify with nearly 80 million plays worldwide. Most recently, STANAJ has been on the road touring with fellow vocal powerhouses JoJo and Jessie J, and releasing new music for his fans- including his From a Distance EP and “The Way I Love Her,” a song he co-wrote with Simon Wilcox and RedOne, who also produced the track.
