Play of the week: Jake Bugg

By  September 25, 2012

Nottingham’s latest export announces the release of his self titled first album…

With the likes of Fearne Cotton and Zane Lowe amongst his biggest fans, it’s no surprise Jake Bugg was destined to be The Next Big Thing. The 18 year old has already enjoyed great success with his debut single ‘Lightening Bolt’, supported The Stone Roses at their legendary secret gig in London and is set to support Noel Gallagher on his UK and European tour later in the year – not bad for the youngster from Nottingham who burst onto the scene only months before.

And its easy to see why – a working class kid with an acoustic guitar his unique style makes for irresistibly catchy melodies about growing up in his hometown of Nottingham. We’re more than smitten here at Glam.

Supported by the likes of  The NME and The Observer Jake can already boast to having a phenomenal 5 records of the week on Radio 1 and made his debut TV appearance on Later with Jools Holland.

So what’s next? Well considering he has yet to release an album that’s first on the list. Coming to iTunes near you on 15th October, Jake Bugg (no extra title needed here), features 14 original songs that are sure to help you through the winter blues. It’s not to be missed.
