Jake Bugg releases new single On My One for free

Jake Bugg has released the first single 'On My One' from his forthcoming third studio LP - for free.

The 'Two Fingers' hitmaker gave fans a preview of his new album with the track, which resembles the angst-ridden tones of his earliest hits 'Lightning Bolt' and 'Country Girl'.

The 21-year-old singer previously stated his new material would be "darker", a fusion of "cool hip-hop elements" and guitars.

He previously said: "My mates back in Clifton listen to grime and hip-hop, but if I can take some cool hip-hop elements but mix them with guitar as well, then I feel like it's still me. I think this album is very diverse, every track is different, but hopefully there's still enough to please the old fans as well."

'On My One' will feature on the British singer/songwriter's first record since 2013's 'Shangri La'.

Since then, Jake revealed he worked on stuff with an unnamed producer on songs that were rejected by his label, which could mean he's self-produced the release.

At the time, he said: "Weirdly enough the label preferred my recordings to the producer I'd been recording with, It wasn't my choice, it was their choice. So they must be OK. I've been mixing them and making them sound real sharp and real nice."

Meanwhile, the Nottingham-born star will make his live return at BBC Radio 1 and Annie Mac's special broadcast from London's O2 Forum on February 29. He will appear alongside The 1975 and Lady Leshurr.
