FRESH: ‘Candlelight’ – Jack Savoretti

Jack Savoretti launches his new single “Candlelight” and a new album in 2019!

Hot on the heels of his smash hit duet “Music’s Too Sad Without You” with Kylie Minogue, singer and songwriter Jack Savoretti has released his brand new track “Candlelight” ahead of his forthcoming sixth studio album “Singing To Strangers” early in 2019.

“Candlelight” is co-written with Joel Potts (Athlete, Ezra) and is a heartfelt epic that once again showcases Savoretti’s gritty and very masculine vocal, equally at home with tragedy as well as unashamed romance. “Candlelight” is the first taster of his new album “Singing To Strangers”, which is released on 15th March 2019 and is Jack’s third release for BMG, following his hugely successful albums of 2016 “Sleep No More” and 2015’s “Written In Scars”.

Jack first hit the charts back in 2006 with his debut single “Without” and the album “Between The Minds”, and despite the success of “Without”, the album only reached No.70 in the UK. He followed this up with “Harder Than Easy” (2009) and “Before The Storm” (2012), which included such gems as “Hate And Love”, “Map Of The World” and “Take Me Home”. But it was “Written In Scars” that truly launched Jack to a winder audience together with the singles “Home”, “Back Where I Belong” and the outstanding “Catapult”.

“Sleep No More” delivered further hits with “When We Were Lovers” and “I’m Yours”. Both “Written In Scars” and “Sleep No More” were later reissued in expanded forms with live and acoustic tracks, which sets Jack apart from his peers and contemporaries. In 2017 he duetted with Italian singer Elisa on the track “Waste Your Time On Me”, included on her ninth studio album “On” and in 2018 he co-wrote and recorded the song “Music’s Too Sad Without You” with non other than Kylie Minogue, which was featured on her fourteenth studio album “Golden”.

“Singing To Strangers” is produced by Cam Blackwood (George Ezra) and was recorded in Rome at Ennio Morricone’s studio this Summer (2018). And with three months to go until the 12-track album is out, be certain that there will be more songs released between now and then!

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!
