Jake Bugg Australian Tour in April


Winding his way back to Australian shores with brand new fourth album Hearts That Strain, Nottingham native Jake Bugg – already a veteran at the age of 23 – has definitely learned a thing or two from five years of constant recording and touring.

Hitting Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane for three huge solo acoustic shows, Bugg is well known to audiences down under for his boundless energy and shopworn tenderness, with his visits always attracting fevered excitement from both locals and ex-pats alike.

Recorded in Nashville with Black Keys frontman (and super producer) Dan Auerbach, Hearts That Strain shows a side of Jake Bugg rarely revealed on his previous three studio albums. There is a distinctive country feel running throughout songs like ‘How Soon The Dawn’ and ‘Waiting’. The latter even features a duet with Noah Cyrus – of that Cyrus family. 

Other songs include breakneck numbers like ‘Lightning Bolt’ and ‘Trouble Town’, not that he doesn’t enjoy leveling the odd audience with these early gems.
