Albert Hammond Jr. is set to join 19-year-old English rocker Jake Bugg out on the road early next year.

The Stokes guitarist is currently wrapping up the European leg of a solo tour in support of his EP, AHJ, which he released in October. His tour with Bugg starts on January 9th in Baltimore and wraps up on January 29th in Houston —  Hammond played a number of the same cities last month.

Hammond emerged this past fall with a recharged approach to music following his rehab in 2009, and he hopes to have a follow-up EP out before long. The current solo tour is his first in years. "It feels like the universe has just lined up for me to really take responsibility," he recently told Rolling Stone. "'If you want to do this thing, do it. Stop trying to hide behind things. Just do it and take the good and the bad straight up.' I'm excited about that. I'm ready." 

Bugg, meanwhile, has also had a busy fall, releasing his second album, Shangri La, which he recorded with Rick Rubin. He was also shortlisted for the 2013 Mercury Prize and will perform at tonight's Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway.

Song Stories

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
