James Bay releases new track ‘Pink Lemonade’

James Bay has released a new track called ‘Pink Lemonade’, taken from his forthcoming album Electric Light.

The Grammy nominated singer-songwriter made his comeback with ‘Wild Love’ last month, and fans have been craving more from the artist ever since. ‘Pink Lemonade’ is an uptempo offering from James and is much edgier than his previous single.

Listen to ‘Pink Lemonade’ below.

In addition to releasing a new single, James has confirmed the release date and tracklist for Electric Light. His new album will be released worldwide on May 18.

Electric Light Tracklist

  1. ‘Intro’
  2. ‘Wasted On Each Other’
  3. ‘Pink Lemonade’
  4. ‘Wild Love’
  5. ‘Us’
  6. ‘In My Head’
  7. ‘Interlude’
  8. ‘Just For Tonight’
  9. ‘Wanderlust’
  10. ‘I Found You’
  11. ‘Sugar Drunk High’
  12. ‘Stand Up’
  13. ‘Fade Out’
  14. ‘Slide’

Describing his forthcoming album, James said: “If I had to describe my first album (Chaos and the Calm) visually, it would probably be a flame. 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.”

If that wasn’t enough, James has also announced a whole host of new tour dates. Having previously announced a London show and US dates for March/April, James has now added more dates in the UK and Europe whilst also confirming a fall tour in North America.
