Jake Bugg announces his emotive acoustic track Saviours Of The City, which is available to buy and stream now on RCA Records/Sony Music.
Still only 26-years-old, yet with 4 albums and numerous hit singles to his name, Jake Bugg has a seasoned knowledge beyond his young years, which he couples with a refreshing wry sense of humour and a laid-back gritty swagger.
He released new single and video Kiss Like The Sun at the end of last year, his debut release since signing to RCA Records, which marked a new start in his musical career. Co-written with Andrew Watt (Post Malone), it received a Hottest Record play via Annie Mac on Radio 1 and was accompanied by a cinematic performance video shot in Kiev.
Saviours Of The City was co-written with friend ONR last year, but interestingly relates to the situation in the world right now in its earnest reflective lyrics and stripped back sound. Jake says;
“I wrote this last year with my mate Robert (ONR). It’s a song I didn’t envisage releasing this early, but it seems to resonate with what’s going on right now and makes sense of it for me in some ways.”
Jake and his band played 9 sold out UK dates last month before lockdown erupted, which followed his November tour performing at venues including The Roundhouse in London and a hometown show at Nottingham Rock City.
