James Bay’s only got “One Life” … and he wants his girlfriend present for all of it.
The music video for Bay’s charming new song, “One Life,” which describes the path from a couple falling in love to becoming pregnant and raising a child together, was released on Thursday.
Bay’s own relationship, which he has mainly kept out of the public eye up until this point, served as the inspiration for the song. Alongside his girlfriend, Lucy Smith, with whom he shares his 20-month-old daughter Ada Violet, Bay, 31, tells that they had been together since they were little children growing up in the same hometown. “She has played such a significant role in my path. Before I ever began to perform as a solo musician, we were friends.”
The “Move Together” singer claims that when he showed Lucy the song and music video, she responded favorably, and he valued her opinion.
“One of my best reviewers and judges is Lucy. I wouldn’t want it any other way and I really need that from her “He claims. “If she just told me she appreciated everything I wrote, it wouldn’t work. Given this, I would consider myself to have something if I could write a song that she would want to listen to repeatedly. I’m really happy to announce that One Life was one of those tunes.”
Bay teased the song on social media before its release and said that it is a song about “the most important and secret portion of my life.”
I’ve never been good at discussing my personal life on this site. That’s fine with me. The lines can blur, though, and that’s okay occasionally, I’m discovering. All things considered, creating (and appreciating) music is such a personal experience, and you two are fantastic for sharing it with me, he wrote in the caption of the Instagram video that featured a number of images of the pair over the years.
