Jake Bugg has revealed that he is halfway through recording his second album.

The 'Lightning Bolt' singer was speaking to Absolute Radio's Pete Donaldson backstage at the Isle Of Wight Festival when he revealed his progress on the follow-up to his self-titled debut album.

"I'm halfway through it," he said. "I just want to make sure I'm happy with it and I want it to try and be better. Whether it will be or not it's not for me to say. It's for the people that go out there and get it but, no I'm pretty happy with it so far. I don't want to put it out there if I'm not happy with it."

Speaking about the writing process, he added: "Usually all ideas can come all at once. And then sometimes you go through days where you're not coming up with anything. So you know I quite like it when I'm getting a lot of ideas at one time it gives you a lot to work with."

Last month, it was revealed that Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith will appear on his 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.

On working with the Chad Smith, Bugg said: "I didn't know who Chad was to be honest, obviously I knew who the Red Hot Chilli Peppers were and then he started playing and I was like, 'Wow', you know. It was pretty amazing. It was such a cool vibe and so I can't wait to get back in and try and finish it up and hopefully get it out there later this year or even early next year."

Bugg recently told NME that he will be going back into the studio with Rubin later this year to finish up recording 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.
