Jake Bugg has announced a new album and single.
Nottingham-born singer-songwriter Jake Bugg recently returned to the limelight with new song ‘On My One’, which he dropped last week. It now transpires that the song is the title track from his new album of the same name.
Jake Bugg explained: “In a lot of ways it [the album title] sums up this record because it mainly has been me on my own, I saw this as the logical next step in my development as a songwriter. It was a challenge but something I felt I had to do.”
The album, which is set for release on the 17th June 2016, is accompanied by an explosive new single, ‘Gimme The Love’, which impacts on the 15th Apr 2016.
The 11-track record acts as the follow-up to Bugg’s first two albums; his double platinum 2012 debut ‘Jake Bugg’ and his Top 5 2013 follow-up ‘Shangri La’.
The multi-talented musician wrote all eleven songs, played most of the instruments, and produced most of the album, with Jacknife Lee stepping in on production duties on three tracks.
Recorded in London, Los Angeles and Nottingham, there are highlights aplenty, including the moving ‘Love Hope And Misery’, the stomping ‘Bitter Salt’, the soulful ‘Never Wanna Dance’, and the defining title track.
Earlier this week, it was also announced that Bugg will head to Sherwood Pines Forest for his first hometown show in almost three years, on the 23rd June 2016.
In the run-up to the performance, Bugg will perform four warm-up shows in different venues across London in March 2016.
Jake will also perform at V Festival and T In The Park this summer.
