Jake also released his new single ‘Kiss Like The Sun’, a track that Annie Mac named as her Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1. Jake, known for songs such as ‘Be Someone’, (a collaboration with Camelphat) and ‘Lightning Bolt’ is currently in the process of putting together his fifth album, a collaboration with Andrew Watt, at the helm of production work, responsible for working with artists Post Malone and Cardi B.
Regarding Andrew Watt, Jake said, “I love working with Andrew Watt and I’m really pleased with the sound of this track. I wanted to write something that was fun and a bit light-hearted.”
In February and March 2018, Bugg undertook a lengthy UK & Ireland Acoustic Tour. He played venues including Ulster Hall in Belfast, the London Palladium and Manchester’s Albert Hall.
drownedinsound reviewed Jake’s fourth album ‘Hearts That Strain’, to which they gave the record a mixed review. Harriet Linnell said, “Jake Bugg used to make albums which were gritty and miserable (in the best kind of way), and while of course artists’ sounds change, it is hard not to wish that the sharp, insightful lyrics and earworm riffs he used to reel off would make a comeback.”
