COMPETITION: Win Jake Bugg’s latest album! Just tell us What football team does Jake Bugg support?
Jake Bugg released a stunning new album, ‘On My One’ June 17th on Virgin EMI.
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.
Jake wrote all eleven songs, played most of the instruments, and produced most of the album (Jacknife Lee produced 3 tracks). The results are simply staggering. 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.
For all its diversity, the heartbeat of ‘On My One’ is the blues. “Blues is my favourite genre,” Jake admits. “Whether it’s soul or hip hop, it all stems from the blues. To me the blues just means singing your emotions and expressing your pain so others can feel it. That’s the beauty of music. If nothing else, I’d like to think I’ve done that with this record.”
To make three albums by the age of 21 is no mean feat. To singlehandedly make ‘On My One’ shapeshifting effortlessly from blues to pop, rap to folk and soul to country through great songwriting is nothing short of remarkable. Enjoy the ride.
