In de zomer van 2013 brengt James Bay zijn eerste mini-album, The Dark Of The Morning uit. Een slordig jaar later is Let It Go de opvolger,waarvan het titelnummer de Britse hitlijst weet te halen. Ondertussen had de zanger al een tour achter de rug samen met Hozier.

Eind 2014 verschijnt Hold Back The River, afkomstig van zijn debuutalbum Chaos And The Calm dat in maart 2015 verschijnt.

Het wordt de eerste Top 40-hit voor Bay, die ook nog eens wordt onderscheiden met de Brit Awards Critic Choice. Ook Let It Go, dat Alarmschijf wordt, is afkomstig van Chaos And The Calm en staat eind mei in de Top 40. Later volgen de singles If You Ever Want To Be In Love en Best Fake Smile.

In 2018 maakt James Bay bekend een ander geluid te willen laten horen. Dat doet hij in de aanloop naar zijn nieuwe album Electric Light met de tracks Wild Love en Us.


Songtekst

From walking home and talking loads
To seeing shows in evening clothes with you
From nervous touch and getting drunk
To staying up and waking up with you

But now we're sleeping at the edge
Holding something we don't need
All this delusion in our heads
Is gonna bring us to our knees

So come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me

Everything that's broke
Leave it to the breeze
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me
And I'll be me

From throwing clothes across the floor
To teeth and claws and slamming doors at you
If this is all we're living for
Why are we doing it, doing it, doing it anymore

I used to recognize myself
It's funny how reflections change
When we're becoming something else
I think it's time to walk away

So come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me

Everything that's broke
Leave it to the breeze
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me
And I'll be me

Trying to fit your hand inside of mine
When we know it just don't belong
There's no force on earth could make me feel right
No, whoa

Trying to push this problem up the hill
When it's just too heavy to hold
Think now's the time to let it slide

So come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me

Everything that's broke
Leave it to the breeze
Let the ashes fall
Forget about me

Come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don't you be you
And I'll be me
And I'll be me
