Recently, he found out the original demo of the song and felt to okay about releasing it now.
He re-recorded the track with producer Gabe Simon.
James Bay said of the song, “Suddenly I was leaving all the time to travel around the world, I was rarely ever in the same place for more than a week. I somehow felt very vulnerable talking about all of this in songs. It was scary to share that I could feel so broken by experiences that I knew others would've killed for. And it felt very revealing to talk about having someone so vital to me who knew how to put me back together when I felt like falling apart. It's taken a long time but I've always loved this song and it feels like it's finally time to let it out into the world.”
- James Bay shared on social media with the demo version of the song, “This is the original demo for 'All My Broken Pieces'. I wrote this in 2013. It's taken me a long time to feel okay about putting this song out, it means a lot to me. It's about some very personal stuff about personal sort of growth and struggle and insecurity and having somebody in you life as I was lucky enough to still am, who knows how to help put you back together when you fall apart. It's crazy to hear it. 10 years later after I wrote it and made this demo, but I've been in the studio recorded it, and now it's coming out, it's my next single.”
