Jake Bugg has revealed more details about his second album.

The Nottingham singer released his self-titled debut record last year. Since then, he has begun work on the follow-up with producer Rick Rubin and recently stated the album was halfway through.

Speaking to NME at Bushmills Live festival, which takes place in the Old Bushmills whisky distillery in Coleraine, Northern Ireland last week (June 20), Bugg described the songs as sounding "more mature," but added. "I don’t want it to be too mature because I’m 19 but I want it to sound like it’s progressing."

He also discussed how the subject matter of the record may differ from the first, explaining: "I can’t really sing about the same things I sung about on the first album because that would be very dishonest. There’s a lot of people that come from where I’m from that don’t get those opportunities so I think I should give them a bit of an insight of what I’ve experienced so far and what’s been going on."

Last week, Bugg unveiled a new video for his single 'Broken'. Scroll down to watch the USA-set film for the latest track to be taken from his debut record 'Jake Bugg'. This version has been re-recorded with producer Rick Rubin in his Malibu studio and features a performance from drummer Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and string arrangements from David Campbell, who works with Metallica.
