New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Three-time GRAMMY Award-nominated singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist James Bay shares his new single "Peer Pressure" [feat. Julia Michaels] through Republic Records / Universal Music. On the song produced by Joel Little (Lorde & Khalid) James Bay noted "I think it can be easy to stay very guarded in life, and not let anybody in, past your personal armor. These guards we all put up every day for different reasons. In writing 'Peer Pressure' Julia and I wanted to talk about how, when the right person comes along, they can break through any armor and with love, get straight to you. It's about that person who, no matter how much of a guard you hold up, finds their way through to you. Working with Julia was one of those magical moments when the writing felt so special and the subject felt like a unique take on a topic which is most commonly discussed negatively. It's like sometimes your peers are the ones who bring you out of yourself."

Julia Michaels added: "James is an incredible songwriter and amazing talent. Writing 'Peer Pressure' was a great collaborative experience because we had so much fun in the studio and the song came from a place we could both relate to. I love the song so much and I hope fans connect to it as much as we do."

Next up, BAY will return to the states for his North American headline tour. The run kicks off March 3rd in Nashville, TN at The Ryman Auditorium and makes stops at New York's Beacon Theater March 12th & 13th and LA's The Wiltern on March 25th. In addition, this summer BAY will join Ed Sheeran on his European stadium tour. Check out the full itinerary below and purchase tickets here:

Since his emergence in 2014, JAMES BAY vaulted to the forefront of popular music fueled by transcendent vocals, deft musicality, and a striking sense of soul. He has since sold 5 million albums, including over 4 billion streams. Following the release of his debut album Chaos And The Calm, which featured—"Hold Back The River" and "Let It Go"— BAY was nominated for "Best Rock Album," "Best Rock Song," and "Best New Artist" at the 2016 Grammy Awards. In the UK, the record became the "Biggest New Artist Album Release" that year. Receiving the BRIT's Critics Choice award in 2015, BAY has gone on to receive a win for "Best Male Solo Artist" at the BRITS, "Best New Act" & "Best Solo Artist" at the Q Awards, "Most Performed Work" at the Ivor Novello Awards, "International Newcomer" at Germany's ECHO Awards, and was nominated for "Best New" & "Best PUSH" at the MTV EMA's and a MTV VMA for "Best New Act." On the other side of the globe, he has received a nod for "Best International Artist" at the ARIA Awards in Australia. In addition to selling out shows and performing at festivals across the globe, BAY lent a new version of his song "Running" for the 2016 Sports Relief charity, is an advocate for the international non-profit Wateraid, designed his own signature line for Topman, and Epiphone created the Limited-Edition James Bay Signature "1966 Century" Guitar in his name.

In 2018, James unveiled Electric Light in 2018 which produced singles "Wild Love," "Pink Lemonade" and "Us." Bay co-wrote and produced the album with his longtime songwriting partner John Green and Paul Epworth (Rihanna, Adele). Last year, he made his Saturday Night Live debut performance, performed a duet of "Us" with Alicia Keys on The Voice Season Finale performed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and sold out shows across the globe.
