Today, three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated and BRIT Award-winning multiplatinum singer, songwriter, and artist James Bay debuts the music video for his acclaimed new single “Wild Love.”
A clip of the video premiered today on ABC’s Good Morning America and co-stars Stranger Things star Natalia Dyer. The video begins with a closeup of Bay and follows him through a crowded dance floor where first sees Dyer and the two lock eyes.
About the video and working with Natalia Dyer, Bay said, “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 a massive ‘Stranger Things’ fan so I tried everything in my power not to fan boy too hard.”
Released on February 8th, “Wild Love” has already reached 4 million Spotify streams and counting in addition to racking up half a million YouTube views for the initial lyric video. Across the globe it has earned widespread critical acclaim from NME, Forbes, Harpers Bazaar, Time, GQ UK, Rolling Stone, People, Clash, Billboard, and 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.
