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