Jake Bugg

Jake Bugg released a stunning new album, ‘On My One’ June 17th 2016. The explosive first single, ‘Gimme The Love’, an intoxicating mix of funky drums and wah-wah guitar, is out now.

The album title takes its name from a saying in Jake’s Nottingham hometown and couldn’t be more apt. Instead of saying on my own, they say on my one. “In a lot of ways it sums up this record because it mainly has been me on my own,” Jake says. “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.”

Following the incredible success of his first two albums, the double platinum 2012 debut ‘Jake Bugg’ and the top five 2013 follow-up ‘Shangri La’, this new disc firmly establishes Jake as one of Britain’s most exciting talents.
