Nottingham singer-songwriter Bugg has said he has around 10 to 15 song ideas saved as voice memos on his iPhone for his follow up album to 2013’s ‘Shangri La’.
Although there is an album’s worth of song ideas ready the singer has said the tracks are “nowhere near formed” but he has started working on them in the studio.
He said: “I’ve been trying to keep what I’m doing under wraps at the minute. A producer or someone could stick me on the mics and I’ll just make something up on the spot and not share the ideas that I’ve actually spent a bit of time on because I just want to have a bit more time with it.”
Despite secrecy the rising star has shared some ideas with his ‘Shangri La’ producer, Rick Rubin: “I show him ideas and keep him updated with what I’m doing, because he’s a great guy and his advice is always great to hear.”
Alongside producing new material Jake Bugg will embark on a five-date tour in October performing in some of the largest venues for the singer, including a date at London’s Alexandra Palace. After his UK tour Bugg will be supporting The Black Keys on their October/November tour of USA and Canada.
Jake Bugg will play:
Cardiff Arena (October 5)
Wolverhampton Civic Hall (October 7)
Liverpool Echo 2 (October 18)
Bridlington Spa (October 20)
London Alexandra Palace (October 21)
