Jake Bugg is due to set out on another tour of the UK and Ireland this year.
The tour comes in celebration of his upcoming album “On My One”, due for release on 17th June. From the album, Jake Bugg has already released the singles “On My One”, “Gimme the Love”, and his latest track “Love, Hope and Misery”, of which he said: “I wanted something with an epic pop chorus because I hadn’t done anything like that before.”
“Along the lines of Harry Nilsson, or Bill Withers,” the singer added: “the best thing was we actually got in Bill Withers’ drummer, James Gadson. He’s my favourite drummer so to have him playing on this record was a personal highlight.”
Jake Bugg will kick off his 2016 UK tour dates in Manchester on 18th October. This will be followed by shows in Glasgow, Birmingham, Leeds and Newcastle throughout the month.
The 7-date tour will also see him make a stop in London on 1st November, followed by his final show in Dublin on 5th November.
