Jake Bugg announces new track 'Saviours of the City' out now
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Jake Bugg has released 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.
