Jake Bugg needed to pull things back.
Used to performing with a band, the Nottingham songwriter decided to go it alone, the cut everything out and pursue music on his own.
It seems to be working. New album 'Hearts That Strain' was a mighty solo effort, while a sold out UK tour in November was fuelled by a rare intensity.
With Jake set to hit the road once more next month, we're able to share something special from the songwriter.
'In The Event Of My Demise' is taken from the recent album, a powerful, blues-driven piece of music with a deadly sense of emotional accuracy.
This new clip finds Jake Bugg working alone, taking the world on one song at a time. A real treat for fans, we're glad to be able to share it.
