Burn Alone

Album: Hearts That Strain (2017)
  • This shuffling rockabilly get-down is the most up-tempo track on Hearts That Strain. Jake Bugg suggested to The Sun it has "a psychedelic, driving down the highway American vibe."
  • This features guitar work by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, whom Jake Bugg befriended whilst he was supporting the band on tour. Alongside this song, Auerbach also plays on two other Hearts That Strain tracks - "How Soon The Dawn" and "In The Event Of My Demise."
  • Jake Bugg wrote this song with Dan Auerbach, guitarist Matt Sweeney and Johnny Cash engineer David Ferguson. He told The Independent how the quartet penned the tune as they sat around the table having a few drinks: "It's a very dark song, lyrically, but whoever wrote the darker line got the louder laugh. The writing process wasn't quite as solemn as you'd probably think."
