After an almost deafening silence in the press and on social media, Jake Bugg has finally given details about his forthcoming third album.
Ahead of a one off show in Sydney as part of Mumford and Sons’ Gentlemen of the Road stopover events, the 21 year old has spoken to the AU Review about the record, saying: “I’m in my last week or two, just going through the final end bits that drive you a little mad.”
Bugg’s second album Shangri La was recorded in LA with producing heavyweight Rick Rubin, but he also tells the Australian publication that things have been a little bit different this time around: “I worked with one producer. I think I’m only going to use two songs that we did. All the other tracks I produced myself, I haven’t used any writers. It’s been quite a solitary experience, to be honest. It’s not been the most exciting album making process, but I think there are some exciting songs to have come out it.”
There’s no official release date as of yet, but this news is bound to keep Bugg’s eagerly anticipating fans at bay for a little bit longer.
