Jake Bugg has returned with new single ‘On My One’, the first taste of his forthcoming album.

‘On My One’ can be streamed below and is available to download for free through Bugg’s official website. Speaking about his next album, Bugg previously said the music was “hip-hop inspired and groove-based.”

Bugg’s debut album was released in 2012 with its follow up ‘Shangri-La’ arriving the year after.

In addition to the new song, Bugg has also been added to the line-up for BBC Radio 1 and Annie Mac’s special broadcast from London’s O2 Forum next week (February 29). He will appear on the bill alongside The 1975 and Lady Leshurr. Tickets for the gig can be won here.

Bugg revealed in 2015 that he had worked with Beastie Boys’ Mike D on his third record and that the upcoming effort is “entirely self-written and almost entirely self-produced”.

Bugg said the difference between the new album and its predecessor is the “grooves”, adding: “There’s songs people can actually dance to. I’ve been listening to [UK station] Smooth Radio. Those songs from the ’70s, there was a warmth about them that you don’t get in pop nowadays.”

He also described his new material as “darker” than his previous work and debuted two new songs during a show at Wolverhampton Civic Hall in October last year.
