Talking about the new track, Bay said: “I wanted this song to feel huge and emotional. It’s about that moment when you feel like the sun is beginning to set on a relationship, it’s about the fight to stay together.

“I want it to explode with energy when I play it live. It’s about feeling your heart beat fast and love racing through your veins.”

Tickets are available now.
