Saviours Of The City is the new track released by Jake Bugg.
Last with us towards the end of 2019 with Kiss Like The Sun, which arrived after he signed to RCA Records and was co-written with Andrew Watt, Bugg has shared this one after working with Scottish singer/songwriter ONR:
“I wrote this last year with my mate Robert (ONR),” he says. “It’s a song I didn’t envisage releasing this early, but it seems to resonate with what’s going on right now and makes sense of it for me in some ways.”
More new music is promised after sessions in Los Angeles in the wake of 2017’s Hearts That Strain album; “The rockabilly tendencies of Bugg’s early work seem to have mellowed into a more classic sound,” our review reads. “Not even alt-country like all the kids are doing these days; this is the proper stuff. There’s hints of Merle Haggard or Conway Twitty and so on. Very slight hints, but hints nonetheless.”
