Jake Bugg says he knows some people will "slate" the follow-up to his self-titled debut album.
The 19-year-old hopes his second album will be released by the end of this year.
The singer, who will tour the UK in October, has been working with US producer Rick Rubin and Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
He was speaking to Newsbeat's entertainment reporter Nesta McGregor at Radio 1's Big Weekend.
