Event Description:

James Bay Electric Light Tour is coming to the Greek Theatre at UC Berkeley on October 11! 

Three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated and BRIT Award-winning multiplatinum singer-songwriter James Bay will release his anxiously awaited second full-length album, Electric Light on Friday, May 18, 2018 via [Republic Records].

Aspiring to push his own musical boundaries with Electric Light Bay noted: “If I had to describe my first album visually it would probably be a flame – while this new album is about a real sonic and artistic evolution for me. The feeling of a 100 watt bulb expanding and brightening is what I envisioned. Electric Light came to my mind and I knew it was perfect.”

Composed in East London’s Baltic Studios, Bay co-wrote and co-produced Electric Light with longtime friend and collaborator Jon Green and brought onboard Paul Epworth [Adele, Florence and The Machine] to add final production elements to the record. Released on February 8th, single “Wild Love” has already reached 10 million Spotify streams and counting in addition to racking up nearly 3 million views from its official music video co-starring Natalia Dyer of Stranger Things. Across the globe, it has earned widespread critical acclaim from NME, Forbes, Harpers Bazaar, Time, GQ UK, Rolling Stone, People, Clash, Billboard, and more.
