Breakout U.K. folk/punk/rockabilly purveyor Jake Bugg has announced the November 19 release of his new album Shangri-La. Legendary producer Rick Rubin produced the album, recording Bugg at his studio that gave the new project it's title: Shangri-La. The new album follows up Bugg's self-titled 2012 debut (released in the U.S. this past spring) and features lead track "What Doesn't Kill You," a high-energy two-minute rocker recorded live in the studio that gives young performer's prior acoustic sound an electric jolt. "I think you capture a bit of magic doing that, something you can't explain," said Bugg.
"It came quick but, for me, music's what I do to get away from stuff," Bugg says about how the album's songs came together. "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!"
