UK singer-songwriter James Bay is set to release his debut acoustic EP “The Dark Of The Morning” on July 22 via iTunes and all digital outlets. It’s preceded by the first single “Move Together” available online now. You can hear it streaming now.
Even though he’s only 22 years of age, Bay possesses the wisdom and craft of a veteran songwriter. His stark delivery adds raw power to the stripped-down five-song collection’s acoustic strumming, elegant cello, and delicate piano.
“Move Together” glides from a plaintive, poetic verse into an unforgettable melody. The lyrics exude a cinematic gravitas, while the music remains evocative of greats such as James Taylor and Carole King. This solo affair stands out as a propos introduction to his style.
