Jake Bugg Announces New Single With Noah Cyrus

Following the release of his acclaimed new album Hearts That Strain, Jake Bugg has announced his new single ‘Waiting’. One of the album favourites, the beautiful duet features the sultry vocals of Noah Cyrus, recommended to sing on the track to Jake and producer David Ferguson by Cyrus’ father Billy-Ray on a visit to the studio. Shot in LA by acclaimed director Andrew Douglas, the striking monochrome video finds Jake and Noah duetting after hours in a night club, perfectly evoking the song’s sultry yet melancholy sound.

Hearts That Strain saw Jake work with Grammy Award winning producer David Ferguson and Matt Sweeney, in Nashville and recording with some of the best players in the history of popular music. The reviews for the record have been nothing short of revelatory with the Times saying in their 4* review that Jake ‘sounds better than ever’, The Guardian that he is ‘Glenn Campbell re-incarnated’ and The I and The Sun giving it glowing write ups in their 4* reviews.

Jake is currently gearing up for his intimate November solo tour (which has recently added a show at the Union Chapel, November 21) and will step out again in the spring for the following UK dates:

Sounds Like Friday Night Announces First Line-Up

Fronted by Radio 1 DJ and presenter Greg James with Radio 1 Xtra’s Dotty, each week Sounds Like Friday Night will be sharing presenting duties with a different music artist who will complete the hosting line up and sprinkling their own stardust over proceedings and making every episode a complete one-off.

On Friday October 27, the first guest host is American singer, Jason Derulo. With platinum selling hits including ‘Watcha Say’, ‘Ridin’ Solo’ and ‘Want To Want Me’, Jason has sold more than 50 million singles worldwide and clocked up over two billion views on YouTube. Along with hosting duties and singing live in the studio, Jason will be introducing performances from Charlie Puth and Jessie Ware.

Jason says: “I’m truly honoured to have been invited to be the first guest host on Sounds Like Friday Night. I always have a great time whenever I visit the UK, so I’m super excited to get the weekend party started with a hot new music show.”

Greg will be interviewing Jason and the bands, plus has filmed a special sketch featuring a guest appearance from Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl. Dotty will be chatting with the guests, keeping across the social media streams at #SLFN and getting out and about meeting music fans across the country.

The series’ theme tune is composed and performed by Royal Blood. The band - Brighton duo, Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher - was presented with the Best British Group gong by music legend Jimmy Page at the 2015 Brit Awards and has also scooped up Q, Kerrang and GMA awards.

The next week’s show (Friday November 3) will be co-hosted by Liam Payne, whose debut single ‘Strip That Down’ sold five million units worldwide - the biggest-selling solo single from a current member of One Direction. He’ll be talking to Greg about his new single out in October and soon to be released debut album. Also on show 2, Liam Gallagher will be performing, plus a special guest to be announced soon.
