After selling out his spring headline tour, three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated and BRIT Award-winning multiplatinum singer-songwriter James Bay has announced details for his expanded North American and European run including an October 1st concert in Chicago at the Aragon Ballroom. Show time is 7:00pm. Doors open at 6:00pm. General admission tickets are $37.50 and will be available online at Ticketmaster.com starting Friday, March 16 at 10:00am. 17 & over. Every pair of online tickets comes with one (1) CD of James Bay’s new album Electric Light. Purchaser will receive an additional email with instructions on how to redeem the album. US residents only.

Bay will release his anxiously awaited second full-length album, Electric Light on Friday, May 18, 2018. 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” Here!

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.
