Jack Savoretti Returns March 22nd With A Stunning New Album ‘Singing to Strangers’ On BMG Records

Recorded in Rome at Ennio Morricone’s studio this long, hot summer, the 12 track album features Jack’s acclaimed live band: guitarists Pedro Vito and Sam Lewis; bassist Sam Davies, drummer Jesper Lind and musical director Nikolai Torp on keys.

“Lucikly Morricone’s studio is in the basement of this huge church so it was cooler,” Jack says. “And the atmosphere down there was essential and that was captured on ‘Candlelight’, which became the calling card of the album and will be the first single.”

As for the title track Jack explains its origin:

“That’s my job: I sing to strangers. That’s what I’ve spent most of my life doing. Singing to friends and family and fans; they’re already onside, so you can, to some extent sing anything. Strangers need convincing, touching, connection.”

Jack will tour Europe next April arriving on our shores next May. Tickets go on sale Friday November 23rd for the following dates:

Thurs 23rd O2 Academy Glasgow, UK
Sat 25th The Limelight, Belfast, UK
Sun 26th Olympia Theatre, Dublin, Ireland
Wed 29th O2 Apollo, Manchester, UK
Friday 31st The SSE Arena, Wembley, London, UK

Two co-writes on the album are amongst the highlights. ‘Touchy Situation’ was co-written with Bob Dylan. A contact of Jack’s American manager had some old Dylan lyrics and he was fine with Jack writing music to them. It may have been because he’d heard Jack’s cover of the Dylan rarity ‘Nobody ‘Cept You’ on ‘Written In Scars’ – a song Jack found in Jackson Browne’s studio.

The other collaboration was the Kylie Minogue cowrite ‘Music’s Too Sad Without You’ which appears as a live version recorded in Venice on ‘Singing To Strangers’ and is available as an instant grat from November 23rd with album pre-orders.

Jack recently appeared alongside Kylie Minogue on the Jonathan Ross show and they also perform the duet on the Michael McIntyre show November 24th.
