Contactmusic caught up with Jake Bugg at Leeds Festival 2013 over the August Bank Holiday Weekend where he talked about his upcoming second album, working with producer Rick Rubin and having Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith drumming on the record.
Talking about Rubin, Jake says: 'He's so diverse in what he does. This year he's done the Jay-Z record and the Kanye West album and Black Sabbath. He's great to work with, he's so chilled out.' He also admitted that he hadn't a clue who Rubin had brought in to drum on a few of his songs. 'I didn't know who Chad was when he came in and said, 'I'm your drummer'', he says. 'I was like, 'Oh, that's brilliant mate, can I have a go on your drumkit please?'' Among his other collaborations was songwriter Iain Archer who he worked with at the Malibu studio ('an inspiring place to be').
