Jack Savoretti - Singing to Strangers: Deluxe Vinyl 2LP (Out Of Stock) Pre-order
Jack Savoretti Singing to Strangers: Deluxe Vinyl 2LP
Produced by Cam Blackwood (George Ezra), Singing to Strangers follows Jack Savoretti's last two gold discs Written in Scars (2014) and Sleep No More (2016). Recorded in Rome at Ennio Morricone's studio during the long, hot summer of 2018, the 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 it's 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."
Two co-writes on the album are amongst the highlights. "Touchy Situation" was co-written with Bob Dylan. Yes you read that right! 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 co-write "Music's Too Sad Without You" which appears as a live version recorded in Venice.
The latter is included as a bonus track on this Deluxe 2LP Edition alongside fellow live track "Vedrai Vedrai/Oblivion" plus "Symmetry" and "Beginning Of Us."
