Yet another new track from Jake Bugg's upcoming Rick Rubin-produced Shangri La. The track is an upbeat folky romp, diversely layered with guitar pickin' and handclaps about feeding the beast that eats the beauty in the world. The subject matter may be a bit dark, his goal is to open your eyes. Take a listen to the track above and check out the lyrics below.

Jake Bugg "There's A Beast and We All Feed It" Lyrics:

They grin, but they don't mean it
They sing, but they don't feel it
They come, but they don't see it
They can call, but they don't heed it
Think, but they don't speak it
There's a beast eating every bit of beauty and they all feed it

Stop

Moment, try to freeze it
They find, but they don't seek it
At the bar, but they can't meet it
Try their best, but they can't beat it
Nice car, somebody keys it
There's a beast eating every bit of beauty and yes they feed it

Not a finger pointer
I will not cry your name
But yeah brothers and sisters
We all want in the same
When my sister suffers
When my mother cries
All I wanna do is look in someone's eyes

Say you sleep, and you don't dream it
Sly, but you don't seem it
Struggle to perceive it
Is it hard to believe it
There's a beast eating every bit of beauty and yes you feed it

Not a finger pointer
I will not cry your name
But yeah brothers and sisters
We all want in the same
When my sister suffers
I am my mother's child
All I wanna do is look in someone's eyes and say

Somehow we fear to speak it
Scared someone will tweet it
It's on the wall, but you won't read it
It's gone before you see it
We all get to repeat it
There's a beast eating every bit of beauty and yes we all feed it
