James Bay – Running

Hello goosebumps, where did you come from? Oh, yes, that would be James Bay’s doing.

“My heart is ready to burst” after hearing the devastatingly beautiful “Running”, a ballad where Bay makes a vow to always come home no matter the obstacles. The Brit has a stunningly soulful, raspy voice which he pairs with some killer blues rock, like the fiery “Collide“.
