Bugg: new album this year?

Sixties throwback Jake Bugg says he plans to release his second album before the end of the year and that he's enjoying playing with "some more expierenced cats" on his new songs.

The 19-year-old had the breakthrough album of the year with his self-titled debut and now he says that he "might as well keep up the momentum."

Speaking to Rolling Stone, the Nottingham lad said: "I don't really see any harm in it. It seems like the right thing to do. Might as well keep up the momentum, you know?"

"In this time that I've been touring and travelling the world I had a lot of new experiences and opportunity. Why not write about it?"

Bugg, a vocal critics of One Direction, has recorded 12 new tracks for the album during sessions with Rick Rubin and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and he says that it was great "to play with some more experienced cats."

"That's why Rick's so good. Because I'll take some ideas to him and he'll be like, 'Why don't you repeat that line? As an artist you can get quite defensive about your work. But it never feels like Rick's imposing on that. He likes to try and get the best out of an artist."
