About this deal

The songs on Saturday Night, Sunday Morning are the kind you could easily see getting placed in the background of TV shows or used in commercials. Additional peaks include: 194 in Belgium's Flanders region, [12] 139 in France's French Top Album Physiques chart, [13] 95 in Germany, [14] 58 in Ireland, [15] and 45 in Switzerland. Singles All I Need and Kiss Like The Sun marked the beginning of a new start in Jake’s musical career since signing to RCA Records, alongside his tracks and short films Rabbit Hole and Saviours of the City released last year. The tracklisting will feature previous singles All I Need and Kiss Like The Sun alongside a new single coming next month.

According to the review aggregator Metacritic, Saturday Night, Sunday Morning received "mixed or average reviews" based on a weighted average score of 56 out of 100 from four critic scores. Taken on their own, these are fine songs and Bugg's reedy alto is showcased to nice effect throughout. He’s kept trying on different hats ever since, from clumsy grasps at rap on 2016’s ‘On My Own’ to the mostly acoustic ‘Hearts That Strain’ a year later. With 4 albums and numerous hit singles to his name, Jake Bugg has a seasoned knowledge beyond his young years, which he couples with a refreshing wry sense of humour.El Hunt of NME gave this album 2 out of 5 stars, writing that "Bugg has struggled to replicate [the] raw charm" of his earliest work and criticizes the artist's shift toward pop music by stating that these songs "possesses about as much pizazz as a slightly feeble party popper". All I Need, produced by multi-award-winning producer Steve Mac, was the second official single release for Jake since Kiss Like The Sun at the end of 2019, which was co-written with Andrew Watt (Post Malone). Regardless of what you think of the Nottingham musician – who first rose to prominence in Glastonbury’s unsigned talent competition back in 2011 – there’s no denying that his self-titled 2012 debut felt cohesive and assured. The aptly named ‘Lost’ pairs a generous helping of synthetic, nu-disco violin with a ‘Jolene’-style bassline, and yet still manages to sound utterly joyless. His laid-back gritty swagger and striking yet nonchalant image have seen him fuse his music and style, collaborating with the likes of Saint Laurent and Burberry on campaigns.

New album Saturday Night, Sunday Morning will be released on 20th August and Jake says it was “the most fun he’s ever had making a record”. Both singles marked the beginning of a new start in Jake’s musical career since signing to RCA Records, alongside his tracks and short films Rabbit Hole and Saviours of the City released last year. Saturday Night, Sunday Morning is a cohesive enough follow-up, but Bugg still seems conflicted about the sound that first propelled him into the spotlight.In the opening moments of ‘All I Need’ Jake Bugg sets out his mission statement for this album atop catchy but unremarkable retro-soul: “C all me cynical, but original,” he sings. It rankles when this album was put together by a team best known for the music he claims to despise.
