They tour announcement comes alongside new album details.
Nottingham singer-songwriter Jake Bugg has announced a further string of UK dates in support of his recent new album, Hearts That Strain. Tickets go on sale at 9:00 on Friday 29 September 2017.
Bugg will already be touring the UK in November on a run of special solo dates, having recently added a headline show at London’s stunning Union Chapel on the 21 November 2017. The new dates, set for February and March 2018, add a further 16 shows to his UK and Ireland run.
Following up his 2012 debut album, 2013’s Shangri La and last year’s On My One, Bugg headed to Nashville to lay down the new record. To celebrate the album, released on the 1 September 2017 through Virgin EMI, he revealed new single How Soon The Dawn, teaming up with American musician Dan Auerbach.
Working with Grammy Award winning producer David Ferguson and Matt Sweeny, Bugg has collaborated with some major players from the Nashville scene, including Gene Chrisman and Bobby Woods of American Sound Studio’s legendary house band The Memphis Boys.
“They’re old guys but they’re amazing”, Jake Bugg says. “It was ten to five and then that’s it. They’d pack up and we’d done two or three tunes. It was a mad vibe being from England and meeting these absolute legends and then cutting tracks with them.”
His new music takes inspiration from his surroundings, and from his experienced collaborators. Hearts That Strain has seen Jake Bugg team up with fellows lovers of music, including rising artist Noah Cyrus (younger sister of Miley) on Waiting.
Still at just 23 years old, Jake Bugg’s career has been dominated by huge hits, including Lightning Bolt and Two Fingers from his self-titled debut, all the way up to Love, Hope and Misery from On My Own.
Bugg has enjoyed live success, taking to stages at various festivals including the legendary Glastonbury Festival, as well as securing multiple Brit Award nominations.
Taking a trip from the United Kingdom to the States, Bugg is starting a new chapter in his music career, showcasing new and old songs in a stripped back environment come November 2017, and then again in February and March 2018.
