Jake Bugg has announced details of a new album – get all the info on ‘Saturday Night, Sunday Morning’ below.
The album, which was recently previewed by the single ‘All I Need’, will be taken on the road across the UK and Ireland next spring.
Bugg says the ‘Saturday Night, Sunday Morning’ is “the most fun he’s ever had making a record,” and is set to land on August 20. Pre-orders for the album are available here.
The tour for the album will begin in mid-March 2022 with a show in Newcastle, before running until the start of April, and concluding with a huge London show at Brixton Academy.
My new album ‘Saturday Night, Sunday Morning’ is coming out on 20 August and I can’t wait for you all to hear it.

Bugg’s last album ‘Hearts That Strain’ was released in 2017. In a two-star review upon the album’s release, NME said: “The defining feature of ‘Hearts That Strain’ may be its puzzling lack of urgency: Bugg started as an heir apparent to the Gallagher brothers, but on MOR-country ballads like ‘This Time’ or ‘Bigger Lover’ he sounds more like an over-earnest James-Blunt-in-waiting.”
Bugg also recently revealed that he is currently writing music for a film about the Brazilian footballer Ronaldinho. A documentary on the 2002 World Cup winner is in the works by the filmmakers Andrew and Stuart Douglas, who have worked on some of Bugg’s music videos in the past.
