FRESH: ‘Music’s Too Sad Without You’ – Kylie Minogue & Jack Savoretti

Kylie releases “Music’s Too Sad Without You”, her sombre duet with Italian singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti.

Kylie has released the video for the FIFTH single from her smash hit album “Golden“, her duet with Italian singer and songwriter Jack Savoretti “Music’s Too Sad Without You”. Co-written by Kylie and Jack, and produced by Australian producer Sam Dixon, the song closes another remarkable year in Kylie’s career.

The video was filmed in Venice in July this year. It is Kylie’s TENTH duet, having previously sung with the likes of Jason Donovan, Nick Cave, Robbie Williams and Enrique Iglesias to name just a few, and her first self-penned/co-written duet since “100 Degrees” with her sister Dannii for the “Kylie Christmas” album in 2015.

For 35 year old Jack Savoretti, the song is his second collaboration having previously worked with Red Sky July in 2014 on the song “Any Day Now”. Jack has released a total of five studio albums since his first “Between The Minds” in 2007. His 2015 release “Written In Scars” was Gold certified in the UK and its follow up “Sleep No More” (2017) attained Silver status, both albums going top ten there.

“Music’s Too Sad Without You” brings to a close a remarkable year for Kylie with her first release for the newly re-energised BMG Rights Management label, “Golden“, which has sold over 300,000 copies so far and has achieved Gold status in the UK (sales nearing 120,000 copies) as well as topping the chart in five countries and top ten in a further fourteen. In September Kylie began her UK and European tour in support of the album to both critical and audience acclaim, including three straight nights at the O2 in London. She will spend November playing dates in France, Germany and many other parts of Europe and will revisit Ireland at the beginning of December following her enforced cancellation due to illness in early October.

Now that Kylie is back in the public eye and still achieving huge success in her fourth decade, both commercially and especially as a live performer, it won’t be too long before the next exciting stage of her career is announced to an eager world that still can’t get the Australian-born princess of pop out of their head!

UPDATE 13/11/18: Kylie performed the song live on UK television with Jack to rapturous applause on The Jonathan Ross show, and both singers gave a superb performance. Enjoy!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
