睽違了兩年的James Bay終於發新專輯了!從他開始在開始在IG上說要發專輯的時候我就一直等一直等一直等,總算被我等到了ಥ_ಥ

他在昨天2/8(台灣其實是2/9)在Youtube上發了新歌Wild Love。他這次的風格跟以為的輕搖滾不太一樣,以前的他都是拿著一把吉他,唱的大部分都是acoustic,這次的他加入了pop的元素,算是一種改革了吧。

變革了之後有些粉絲覺得不喜歡,但是哪一個歌手不會轉型呢?你看Taylor不也從鄉村音樂轉型了嗎?所以我覺得關於歌手風格改變這件事不必有這麼激烈的言論,又不是說James永遠都不唱acoustic了ಠ_ಠ,他在表演的時候還是會唱啊!

(只不過我們要永遠離開他的帽子和長髮了(ಥ﹏ಥ))

The new work is “diverse and eclectic,” Bay describes. “My lane needs to be widened. I don't wanna confine myself to a narrow lane.” But as much as he claims to have evolved, the old James Bay lives on in his heartfelt lyricism and rocker vocals. He also promises to continue performing with a guitar in hand. 

「這次的作品是一次多變化、不拘一格的風格,」James說道,「我不希望把自己的道路限制的很窄。」但雖然他說他已經的風格已經成長了,以前的James Bay仍然存在在他的歌詞和搖滾聲線內。他也承諾會繼續帶著他的吉他表演。

So does this really mean James Bay's iconic hat is gone forever? “Yeah,” he answers without hesitation. But then he quickly reconsiders. “I mean, who's to say anything's gone or not for good?”

「所以這代表以後不會再看到James的帽子了嗎?」記者問。「是啊,」James毫不猶豫的回答。但思索後了又說,「誰可以斷定把有些東西捨棄了會不是件好事呢?」

"If I'm not moving forward,

       I'm standing still."

“The whole ethos, for me, making this new music, was that if I'm not moving forward, I'm standing still. I'll move forward. All my fans have been on a journey with me over time, as well. I don't expect any of them to be the same person they were when they first discovered my music."

「對於我來說,製作新的音樂的整個思想就是『如果我不前進的話,我就只能站在原地』。我所有的粉絲都在這段時間內和我踏上同樣的旅程,所以我並不期待現在的他們與當初剛聽到我的音樂時的他們一模一樣。」

But when your identity becomes so public, you want to change. You want to change when it's the right time. Because it'd become something of a trademark for me, there's always something scary about taking the leap, and going, ‘Okay, you had a thing that you were known for, along with the music. Now, you're gonna throw that away.’ I would always have chosen to do this.”

「當你的個人特質已經變得如此大眾的時候,你就會想要改變它了。你希望在對的時間改變它,不然它就會變成你永久的一個商標。改變一件事情、踏出第一步永遠都很可怕,但是我會選擇『嘿,你現在已經有一個跟你的音樂一樣廣為人知的特色了,所以現在你必須要丟掉它』。」

"I know some of this new sound was not apparent on my first album – there were hints, perhaps – but I think my new music helps to paint a fuller picture of who I am. As soon as I recognized I was being pinned down as 'the intimate acoustic guitar guy' I realized I knew I had to push myself musically. I want it as part of my arsenal, but I don't want that solely to define me. I'm not there yet, but hope that this new music can do for singer-songwriter, loosely, what Drake and Chance The Rapper are doing for their genre: tearing up the rule book."

「我知道新的歌曲裡面的一些元素在第一張專輯時還沒有那麼明顯 ── 或許有些蛛絲馬跡可循吧 ── 但我知道加入了這些新的音樂才能真正地展現出一個完整的我。當我發現我在大家眼中已經成為了一個『那個拿著吉他清唱的熟悉男人』時,我知道我必須在音樂上有所改變。我希望它可以變成我的一項武器,但我不希望以這項武器來決定我到底是誰,畢竟我還沒真正地達到那裡。我希望我的新的音樂可以跟Drake和Chance the Rapper這些唱作人對音樂做的事一樣:打破成規。」

"If it makes me feel something,

  I will absolutely be inspired by it."

Don't know what to say to you now

Standing right in front of you
就這樣站在你的面前不知所措
Don't know how to fade in and out
不知道如何啟齒、不知道如何離開
Don't know how to play it cool
也不知道該怎麼假裝自己一點也不緊張
Losing a little guard, let it down
我的防備一點一點地被你卸了下來
We don't have to think it through
我們不要太過謹慎的考慮

We've got to let go
只需要放手一搏

 

I wanna give you wild love
我只想給你狂野無邊、
The kind that never slows down
永不止息的愛
I wanna take you high up
帶著你體驗到最高的歡愉
Let our hearts be the only sound
只聽到到心跳快速的跳動聲
I wanna go where the lights burn low and you're only mine
我想去那些人煙罕至地方,在那你只屬於我
I wanna give you wild love
我想給你狂野不羈的愛

 

Tried to call you, to feel you close
試著打給你,想感覺你就在我身邊
From a runway in Tokyo
但我人卻身在東京機場
Let's leave the atmosphere, disappear
讓我們逃離這個緊張的氛圍,從此消失
There's always something left to loose
總是會有能夠讓我們決定去留與否的東西

 

I wanna give you wild love
我只想給你狂野無邊、
The kind that never slows down
永不止息的愛
I wanna take you high up
帶著你體驗到最高的歡愉

我想去那些人煙罕至地方,在那你只屬於我
I wanna give you wild love
我想給你狂野不羈、
I wanna give you wild love
無邊無際的愛

 

(I wanna give you wild love)
(我想給你狂野的愛)
(I wanna give you wild love)
(我想給你不羈的愛)
Let's be reckless, unaffected
就讓我們不受拘束、不被控制
Running out until we're breathless
就讓我們一直奔跑直到喘不過氣
Let's be hopeful, don't get broken
就讓我們充滿著希望,卻不會因希望落空而失望
And stay caught up in the moment
就在此時,讓我們不被任何事物影響

 

I wanna give you wild love
我只想給你狂野無邊、
The kind that never slows down
永不止息的愛
I wanna take you high up
帶著你體驗到最高的歡愉
Let our hearts be the only sound
只聽到到心跳快速的跳動聲
I wanna go where the lights burn low and you're only mine
我想去那些人煙罕至地方,在那你只屬於我
I wanna give you wild love
我想給你狂野不羈、
I wanna give you wild love
無邊無際的愛

 

Give you wild love
就讓我給你狂野放蕩、
Wild love
無邊無際、
Wild love
永不只息、
Wild love
豪放不羈的愛
