jake-bugg_gigs[1]Jake bugg has announced that his second album, ‘Shangri La’ will be released on November 18.

The album was produced by Rick Rubin in his very own studio in Malibu: ‘Shangri La’, which was the reason for Bugg’s choice of album title.

The album features Jason Lader on bass, Pete Thomas [The Attractions] on drums and Matt Sweeney on guitar.

Speaking to BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, Bugg explained how the album was tracked live: Bugg explained that it was tracked live. “I think you capture a bit of magic doing that, something you can’t explain,” said Bugg. He also spoke about how swiftly the release of ‘Shangri La’ came after his debut: “It came quick but, for me, music’s what I do to get away from stuff… Even though its been crazy, when I have time to myself, it’s me picking up my guitar… I travelled lots and had some crazy experiences, so I had a lot to write about!”

On the choice of naming the album after Rubin’s studio, Bugg said:  “It feels like its cut away from civilization.” He added that it “felt right” to name the album after the studio.”
