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 via het album Electric Light dat Wild Love en Us tot de Tipparade brengt. Begin 2019 maakt hij, samen met Julia Michaels, de track Peer Pressure.


Songtekst

Saw you today after so much time
It felt just like it used to be
Talking for hours 'bout a different life
Surrounded us in memories

We were close, never close enough
Where are we now
Cause if it's torn, we can stitch it up
Don't rule it out
Oh no no

I'll come around
If you ever want to be in love
I'm not waiting
But I'm willing if you call me up
If you ever want to be in love
I'll come around

Wanted to ask if we could have been
But my tongue wouldn't break the seal
You always had something effortless
At school you were the biggest deal

Little quirks close and open up
Time is slipping by
Always thinking 'bout the two of us
Replay on my mind
Always playing on my mind

I'll come around
If you ever want to be in love
I'm not waiting
But I'm willing if you call me up
If you ever want to be in love
I'll come around

We were young, we were side by side
Don't know when we started losing touch
If you want we could walk around
Maybe that would be enough

Used to talk, drinking to the night
I would wake up on the front room floor
All along you'd be in my bed
Make me crazy, make me want you more

I'll come around
If you ever want to be in love
I'm not waiting
But I'm willing if you call me up
I'll come around
If you ever want to be in love
I'm not waiting
But I'm willing if you call me up
If you ever want to be in love
I'll come around
