Three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated and BRIT Award-winning multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and guitarist James Bay returned to The Today Show on NBC for a powerhouse performance of his recent single “One Life.” Watch it HERE.

The performance marked the U.S. television debut of “One Life.” He brought the house down with a moving rendition of the song. The track remains a standout from his highly anticipated third full-length album, Leap, out July 8th via Mercury/Republic Records. Pre-order and pre-save Leap—HERE.

Tonight, he graces the stage at The Slipper Room in New York for an intimate sold out gig followed by another sold out show at Hotel Café in Los Angeles on June 23.

Next up, he hits the road across the country in support of the album. He recently revealed headline dates in major markets such as New York’s Irving Plaza on September 7th, Philadelphia’s Theatre of Living Arts on September 9th, Boston’s Paradise Rock Club on September 10th, and Washington, DC’s 9:30 Club on September 11th.

The shows are adding to his current run supporting The Lumineers on their 2022 Brightside World Tour where he will be joining them on nine dates including Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on September 1stand Chicago’s Wrigley Field on September 3rd. Check out the full confirmed itinerary below.

“One Life” set the stage for Leap as it has generated over 5 million global streams and counting, it received widespread acclaim. People praised it as “sweet,” and NME dubbed it “uplifting.”

For Leap, Bay worked with some of the most sought-after producers and songwriters in a mixture of in person and remote sessions in Nashville & London including Foy Vance [Ed Sheeran], Dave Cobb [Brandi Carlile, Chris Stapleton], Ian Fitchuk  [Kacey Musgraves, Brett Eldredge], Joel Little [Lorde, Taylor Swift] & Finneas [Billie Eilish, The Knocks]. Check out the full tracklist below!

To announce the album and this next chapter, Bay shared a powerful letter on social media where he talked about his mental journey towards the making of this next body of work. Read the letter below and on social media– HERE.

It arrived on the heels of “Give Me The Reason.” The latter has already gathered nearly 12 million global streams and right out of the gate, Rolling Stone detailed how the single captures “that feeling of being on the verge of letting go of someone, while looking for any excuse to give it another try.” NME dubbed it “bittersweet,” and mxdwn noted, “the song opens up with his iconic voice that ignites the listener.” “Give Me The Reason” was recorded at both Blackbird studios in Nashville and in London with producer Gabe Simon [Lana Del Rey, Maroon 5, Calum Scott] and co-written with Foy Vance and features Ian Fitchuk on drums.
