James Bay fans, rejoice! The English singer-songwriter is back with new music, and if you can’t tell, we are so excited!

And we’re in luck because James is sharing another song from his upcoming album. ‘One Life’ is a sweet, acoustic track that makes you reflect on how beautiful love is and wanting to build that type of connection with someone.
Bay’s Sweet Inspiration For ‘One Life’
The English singer-songwriter is known for his poetic and meaningful lyrics, but his latest single is probably his most sentimental.
Bay shared on social media his inspiration behind ‘One Life,’ saying he wrote the sweet track for his longtime girlfriend Lucy— they’ve been together since they were 16 and have a daughter together. Someone get us a tissue box because the tears are coming through.
This is a song I wrote about me and Lucy. We first got together at 16 and have been together ever since. She’s supported me since day 1. From open mic nights, right through to my biggest shows. It’s been one adventure after another, but now we’re on the biggest one of all. Raising our beautiful daughter Ada.

The music video for ‘One Life’ is equally heartfelt and romantic, showcasing a couple who are very much in love going through different adventures in their lives. It’s similar to Bay’s love story with his girlfriend and it totally tugs at our emotions!
We are so excited for Leap; July 8 needs to come sooner! Until then, we’ll be listening to ‘One Life’ on repeat and imagining our own love story. Also, be sure to check out James Bay on tour this summer as he is joining another favorite here at THP, The Lumineers.
