Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith will appear on new Jake Bugg's new single 'Broken'.

The track, which appeared on Bugg's chart-topping self-titled debut album, has been re-recorded with producer Rick Rubin – who has worked with Beastie Boys and Johnny Cash – in his Malibu studio. Speaking about working with Rick Rubin, Bugg revealed in a statement: "When I first met Rick I wasn’t aware of all he had done and how well renowned he was but I think that helped and so I just cracked on and recorded my tunes. The whole experience was inspiring. I learnt a lot from Rick. I also got the opportunity to work with some of the best players in the world, which has made me become much better as well."

Bugg recently told NME that he will be going back into the studio with Ruben later this year to record his second album. Confirming that the pair had already recorded one new track – titled 'Slum Door Sunrise', he said of his new material: "I've been listening to a lot of Neil Young and Nick Drake and all that kind of stuff, and I think with these new songs you can kind of tell what I've been listening to. I want to emulate the first record - but better."

Jake Bugg will tour the UK in October. The dates will follow appearances at Reading and Leeds Festivals, as well as slots supporting The Stone Roses over the summer.
