James Bay's emotional song "Wild Love." features a love connection with his co-star, Stranger Things' Natalia Dyer, across a crowded club.
“It was such a pleasure to work with Natalia on the 'Wild Love' set," Bay says in a statement announcing the clip. "She's a lovely person, a huge talent and it was great hanging with her while making this video. I'm a massive Stranger Things fan so I tried everything in my power not to fan boy too hard.”
The video for the ballad opens with Bay, 27, in silhouette in a pitch-black room, singing directly into camera as the a close-up shot moves to a wider view of the singer surrounded by a flock of purple butterflies. As the electronic-tinged track unfolds, James is transported to a crowded dance club, where he spots Dyer and they lock eyes across the dance floor, with Dyer mouthing the refrain, "I wanna give you wild, wild love," as they appear to have a missed connection.
"Wild Love" was co-written and co-produced by Bay along with longtime friend and collaborator Jon Green with additional production help from Paul Epworth.
