Clash Issue 107 James Bay
Personifying this issue’s recognition of those restless creatives who are not afraid to scale the dizzy heights of elevation is James Bay, the second of four cover stars for Clash 107.
After the phenomenal success of his 2015 debut album, ‘Chaos And The Calm’, James returns three years later with a new sound and new look that represents the exertive and evolutionary nature of his responsive ambitions. In simultaneously shedding his shoulder-length locks and overt classic rock inclinations in favour of something more refined and contemporary, James returns with new album ‘Electric Light’ as a renewed and insuppressible force of energy that refuses to be constrained.
“I actually wholly accept and embrace that I and everybody in my position will be typecast to some degree,” he tells us. “What that means is I have a strength that people will use to describe me as an artist. So I’ll play to that, but what I always want to do is show that there is more than that and that I have other strengths to go alongside it. And then maybe, at the very least, I’ll get typecast as a broader sound or thing.”
Standing proudly alongside James Bay in this spring issue is J Hus, Leon Bridges, Trippie Redd, Jade Bird, Tommy Cash, Tove Styrke, Alice Cooper, Bishop Nehru, and much more.
