Teenage singer and songwriter Jake Bugg, who enjoyed success with his self-titled debut album, has spoken about what to expect from his next album. Jake says that he needs to get some more up-tempo tracks for the record, while admitting that the new album will show how his life has changed.
Bugg explained to the Daily Star, "I'm in need of more up-tempo songs with fast-sounding lyrics at the moment, but there'll be some mid-tempo, vibey tracks on the next album and some of my acoustic stuff will stay too. I want to give an insight to the same people who liked the first record about what my life is like now. That's not really a change from my first album, because all I'm doing is writing about my life."
He added, "I'd never left Nottingham when I wrote those first songs, but I've travelled the world and hopefully people can relate to what I've gone through. Whether people still like it is up to them, but it'd be dishonest if I tried to write about life on a council estate again. All I can do is stick to describing what my life is like, same as before, and do it honestly."
Jake Bugg opened for The Rolling Stones last night (Saturday, July 13), where he debuted two new singles Slumville Sunrise and All Your Reasons.There is no official release date for the new Jake Bugg album yet but it is expected to be released later in the year.
