Jake Bugg has released a short film for his new track Rabbit Hole, which is available to watch now. Following recent track and short film Saviours Of The City, new release Rabbit Hole was written and recorded in LA with Tobias Jesso Jr. and Andrew Wells (Ellie Goulding, Jason Mraz) and previewed at shows earlier this year.
The psychedelic and trippy video was filmed entirely by Jake himself during the lockdown in his London flat and was directed over Zoom by directing collective High Art, who also collaborated with Jake on his Saviours of the City short film. Opening with a solemn guitar riff, the track builds to an upbeat chorus both reflecting the highs and lows and the conceptual vs reality nature of the lyrics.
Jake says; “I wrote and recorded this in LA about a year ago. It was an instant one for me and went straight into the live set for the last two tours. I’ve had loads of requests to release it, so I’m excited to get this one out there”

Still only 26-years-old, yet 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 and laid-back gritty swagger.
He released the single and video Kiss Like The Sun at the end of last year, his debut release since signing to RCA Records, which marked a new start in his musical career. Co-written with Andrew Watt (Post Malone), it received a Hottest Record play via Annie Mac on Radio 1 and was accompanied by a cinematic performance video shot in Kiev.
Jake and his band played 9 sold-out UK dates earlier this year before lockdown erupted, which followed his November tour performing at venues including The Roundhouse in London and a hometown show at Nottingham Rock City.
