New York, NY (Top40 Charts) James Bay released the official video for his single "Bad". The video sees BAY emotionally floating through New York as he performs his hit single. The video features some never before performed stunts through some of New York's iconic streets and even an iconic shot in Times Square.

On the video BAY said: "I was handed a video treatment that said "James floating around New York City, suspended on a chair, hanging off the back of a truck." What isn't to love about that!? I was never going to turn that opportunity down! And it was genuinely one of the greatest experiences... the camera crew and the cops who escorted us around Manhattan and Times Square said they'd never seen anything like it in the city before."

"Bad", which was produced by Dan Wilson (Adele "Someone Like You"), quickly became a fan favorite after BAY added it to his set list during his recent US headline tour this spring and nearly 10 million streams online. The EP also features two additional new tracks "Break My Heart Right" and the song "Rescue" which was co-written by Ryan Tedder produced by Ariel Rechtshaid. Oh My Messy Mind also features hit single "Peer Pressure" [feat. Julia Michaels] which has already amassed nearly 46 million-plus Spotify streams and counting. Last month, the two made their network television debut of the song on The Ellen DeGeneres Show: Check out the performance here and the official music video here.

2019 is shaping up to be a big year for Bay. He just finished up a headlining tour and two sold out shows at New York City's Beacon Theater. Currently he is joining Ed Sheeran on his European stadium tour. Check out the full itinerary below and purchase tickets here: https://www.jamesbay.com/tour

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. 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, "International Newcomer"at the ECHO Awards, "Best New Act" & "Best Solo Artist" at the Q Awards, "Most Performed Work" at the Ivor Novello 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.

Between sold out shows everywhere and amassing nearly 2 billion streams, he 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.
