According to a press release, the 25-year-old musician has been working on his next album. Producer Andrew Watt (Post Malone, Lana Del Rey) has been on hand in Los Angeles to help him shape the record.

Reviewing Bugg’s last LP, NME wrote: “[Bugg’s] either a man still in search of a niche or, more worryingly, locked into the wrong one.”

Last year saw the ‘Lightning Bolt’ singer embark on a lengthy acoustic UK tour. The stint included special performances in Nottingham, Leeds, Manchester and more across the country.
