Despite his eponymous debut still selling enormously well as his success continues to grow in 2013, Jake Bugg dropped the news this week that his new album is complete.

Not only that, but we can all get our hands on it before the year is out. Titled “Shangri La”, the Nottinghamshire teen’s second studio album is due for release on November 18th. This time recruiting the big guns in the form of producer Rick Rubin, “Shangri La” is expected to propel Bugg to even higher heights, with a much more fully-formed sound than its predecessor.

And, as if that wasn’t enough to get us all excited, Bugg has also dropped a brand new single. “What Doesn’t Kill You” was imminently released on Monday and sounds distinctly different to the likes of signature song, “Lightning Bolt” and “Trouble Town”. Again produced by Rubin, “What Doesn’t Kill You” is a far more punky affair; the opening riff could’ve jumped straight out of the 1970s, and with a me-against-the-world mentality thrashed out it just over two minutes, it’s a far cry from the 60s-inspired tracks on Bugg’s debut ¬†offering. A promising taste of what to expect from album number two.
