Acclaimed New Album ‘Hearts That Strain’ Out Now
Having stunned onlookers at the 100 Club earlier this month with his first intimate solo show of the year (and with a sold out tour in November still to come), followed by his acclaimed new album ‘Hearts That Strain’ going Top Ten on release, Jake Bugg has added a second show date to his Irish tour, 16th February at Whelans. Tickets are €27.90 and are on sale now.
‘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 Daily Mail, The I and The Sun giving it glowing write ups in their 4* reviews.
