Jake Bugg releases his stunning new album Hearts That Strain, recorded in Nashville, on September 1st. The first taste of which is the breezy single How Soon The Dawn, a collaboration with Dan Auerbach, and you can see the video for it HERE.

Working with Grammy Award winning producer David Ferguson and Matt Sweeney, Jake recorded the album in Nashville with some of the best players in the history of popular music. As part of American Sound Studio’s legendary house band The Memphis Boys, Gene Chrisman and Bobby Woods provided the chops on such pivotal records as Dusty In Memphis, In The Ghetto, Suspicious Minds and Dark End Of The Street, cutting their teeth in sessions with Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin and Dionne Warwick.

"They’re old guys but they’re amazing,” Jake says. “It was ten to five and then that’s it. They'd pack up and we’d done two or three tunes. It was a mad vibe being from England and meeting these absolute legends and then cutting some tracks with them.”

Alongside the single Dan Auerbach also played on shuffling rockabilly get-down I Can Burn Alone and In The Event Of My Demise, while rising star Noah Cyrus, younger sister of Miley, shares the vocals on one of the albums stand out moments Waiting.

As ever, Jake’s writing and singing shine on Hearts That Strain. There’s a common thread running through its 11 songs, each one a gem waiting to be discovered.

Still only 23, Jake’s most recent album was last years acclaimed On My One, and it followed two multiplatinum selling albums his breakthrough self-titled debut and Shang ri La.

With support from The Vital Few.
