Three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated and BRIT Award-winning multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and guitarist James Bay reveals a new single entitled “Everybody Needs Someone.” Listen to “Everybody Needs Someone” here . It’s the latest track to be released from his highly anticipated third full-length album, Leap, out July 8th via Mercury/Republic Records/EMI Records.
On the new track Bay said: “In these last couple weeks before Leap arrives, I want to share one more song with you. It’s called “Everybody Needs Someone. I love this song so much. I know in hindsight that despite lots of fun work and touring back in 2019 I wrote this song because I was feeling lost and alone. The feeling came like a quiet tidal wave. It really threw me around for a while. But thanks to the people closest to me in my life, I made it through that time. They know how to hold me up when I’m down. I hope you all love this song too. So excited for you to have it. x”
“Everybody Needs Someone” illuminates another side of the upcoming record. With its eloquent songcraft and Bay’s powerful delivery, it instantly captivates. Stay tuned for the premiere of the music video soon.
Bay recently appeared on NBC’s The Today Show and The Late Late Show with James Corden where he delivered two unforgettable performances of the previous single “One Life.” Watch The Today Show HERE and The Late Late Show with Jame Corden HERE.
