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. The tracklisting will feature previous singles All I Need and Kiss Like The Sun alongside a new single coming next month. 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”. The strongest tracks on ‘Saturday Night, Sunday Morning’ are the simplest – essentially a hulking, brute-force pop-rock track, ‘Screaming’ sounds custom-written to go off live, while ‘Downtown’ combines combines Bugg’s ear for a ballad with subtle orchestral arrangements.

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). 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. In Metro Weekly, Sean Maurnier scored this release 3 out of 5 stars, stating that there is "definitely more of a radio-ready pop sensibility to it" than Bugg's previous music, but continuing that "swinging for more of a pop sound also produces some weird moments" and praising that "the album tends to be at its strongest on the tracks that showcase his indie rock sensibility and his gift for guitar work".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. 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. Writing for Gigwise, Kieran Macadie rated this release 8 out of 10 stars, writing that it displays Bugg's "iconic heartfelt lyricism and masterful guitar playing". 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". 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.

Album reviews: Jade Bird – Different Kinds of Light, and Jake Bugg – Saturday Night, Sunday Morning". 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. Writing for Clash Music, Finlay Holden scored this release a 7 out of 10, stating that "sonic experimentation breathes fresh life and energy into Bugg’s discography, resulting in an intoxicating LP cementing his strongest offerings since his glorious debut".out of 5 stars, with critic Matt Collar writing that "it lacks some of the sincerity and lyricism that made 2017's Hearts That Strain such a welcome surprise", but balances Bugg's musical influences and is "the culmination of Bugg's rise to mainstream success". 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. 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 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. Unfortunately, ‘Saturday Night, Sunday Morning’ possesses about as much pizazz as a slightly feeble party popper.

Non-personalized content and ads are influenced by things like the content you’re currently viewing and your location (ad serving is based on general location). The problem is, based on ‘Saturday Night, Sunday Morning’ – a muddled album that claims to love pop, but seems thoroughly averse to having any kind of fun – it seems he’s mostly the former.
