Jake Bugg has released a new single called ‘Downtown’ – you can listen to it below.
The tender track is the latest preview of the upcoming fifth studio album by the singer-songwriter from Nottingham, ” Saturday Night, Sunday Morning “, which will be released on August 20th via RCA Records.
The song’s fascinating lyrics offer comfort and a promise that the person he sings for will never be left alone. ” Kept low / In a poisonous mind / Help you find the words / Live and I’ll help you learn “, Bugg sings in the second verse.
In the chorus he adds: ” Follow me now, follow me now / And follow me downstairs, follow me downtown / Summer nights we went / Summer nights we would rage / You will never be alone / You will never be alone . “

Speaking of the genesis of the song, Bugg said:” Usually the initial spark comes an idea of ââmine. And if not, it sometimes loses my attention. Since there were many moving parts and chords, it was almost like a puzzle. I’ve never approached a song like this before. â
In addition to the song itself, Bugg shared an accompanying live session video, which you can check out below.
