James Bay releases his new EP “Oh My Messy Mind”!

by Christopher Smith

Three-time Grammy® Award-nominated and BRIT Award-winning multiplatinum singer-songwriter James Bay surprised fans and released his new “Oh My Messy Mind” EP featuring new single and fan favorite song “Bad”.

On the release of “Oh My Messy Mind” and “Bad” James tells us: “I regularly write things down in a stream of consciousness to empty my head. “Oh My Messy Mind” is a line I wrote on a particularly dark day a little while ago. It seemed to reflect a weight that I felt I was carrying at the time, and that comes back now and again”.

“The songwriting that followed was me looking for a release. With “Bad” and the other songs on the EP I wanted to be honest about some of my own stories and other stories I was being pulled into. “Bad” is a break up song, it’s just not my break up.

“Bad”, which was produced by Dan Wilson (Adele “Someone Like You”), quickly became a fan favorite after James added it to his set list during his recent US headline tour this spring. The EP also features two additional new tracks “Break My Heart Right” and the song “Rescue” which was co-written by Ryan Tedder (Onerepublic) produced by Ariel Rechtshaid.

“Oh My Messy Mind” also features the hit single “Peer Pressure” featuring Julia Michaels, which has already amassed nearly 30 million-plus Spotify streams and counting. Last month, the two made their network television debut of the song on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
