Jack Savoretti Announces Special Edition Of Chart Topping Album ‘Singing To Strangers’ And Reveals ‘Christmas Morning’

As Jack Savoretti winds up the biggest year of his career so far, he today has announced a special edition of his Number 1 charting, third consecutive UK gold-certified album, ‘Singing To Strangers’ – out December 6th on BMG.

Jack finds himself marvelling at a marvellous year. Months of rapturously received shows across the world; a triumphant, sold-out Wembley Arena homecoming; collaborations with artists as diverse as Kylie, Mika and Sigma; and an album in ‘Singing To Strangers’ that is one of the best selling albums of the year, with sales fast approaching 150,000.

This is no three-b-sides-and-a-Live-in-Pompeii-version-of-the-big-single. ‘Singing To Strangers: Special Edition’ features three brand new studio tracks, ‘Closer’ and ‘Waiting For The Sun’, plus a stunning original festive track ‘Christmas Morning’ – listen here.

Jack says of the poignant, strings-laden ballad which he wrote for his children,

“I wanted to reassure them that, even if I’m far away, I’ll be there on Christmas morning. I wanted them to have this song they could listen to every Christmas.”

The album also includes the Radio 2 A-list smash ‘Youth & Love’ feat. Mika; ‘Music’s Too Sad Without You’ (Jack’s hit duet with Kylie Minogue); the stunning live performance of The Killers’ ‘Human’, with Ward Thomas from the SSE Arena, Wembley 2019; as well as ‘Candlelight’ from his Radio 2 Ken Bruce Piano Sessions, and Jack’s collaboration with UK artist Sigma, ‘You And Me As One’.

“I didn’t want this to feel like another album, nor just some outtakes,” he insists. “It has to feel like its own thing, and also be a step along the way to the next album. So that gives you some creative liberties. I want people to go: ‘Wait, what? He’s doing what with who now?”

Here, then, again, anew, is Jack Savoretti’s masterpiece, offering love and warmth and togetherness in cold and fractious times. He began the year singing to strangers. He’s ending it singing to friends – hundreds of thousands of them.
