Jack Savoretti reveals new single ‘Who’s Hurting Who’ ft. Nile Rodgers & announces new album ‘Europiana’ & spring 2022 UK Tour.

Jack Savoretti returns with a wonderful new album that arrives complete with its own genre, Europiana. Put on your dancing shoes for the funky first single, the disco fuelled ‘Who’s Hurting Who’, featuring Nile Rodgers.  

“Nile brings groove, glamour and chic that is everything that Europiana is,” Jack Savoretti says. “’Europiana wouldn’t exist without Nile Rodgers!”

To celebrate, Jack has announced a 12 date UK tour next spring kicking off at the Plymouth Pavilions and finishing up at London’s Eventim Apollo. Tickets go on sale May 14th at 9am from HERE

Europiana is the follow-up to Jack’s breakthrough 2019 album Singing to Strangers’ his third consecutive gold seller and first UK number one. While that album was recorded in Rome at Ennio Morricone’s studio, this new disc was conceived in between lockdowns at Jack’s Oxfordshire home.

Europiana isn’t a sound. It’s references and inspirations and the emotions they evoke,” Jack says. “It’s the music of my childhood summers, remade for today.”

Once again, Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, London Grammar, Florence & The Machine), has produced the album, recorded late last year at Abbey Road with Jack’s longtime touring band. John Oates plays guitar and sang backing vocals, from Nashville, on the lush ‘When You’re Lonely’.

Much of the 11 track album concerns itself with family, friendship and the precarious nature of love so it’s not surprising that Jack’s wife and children sing on a few tracks.

Singing to Strangers was my first album that wasn’t all about me, which I loved,” Jack says. “Europiana pushes that further. There are more characters and bigger concepts. I’m looking out at the world, not inwards.”

And what a view! There’s a confidence and an emotional swagger that drives these songs onto new heights. Jack has never been in better voice, turning in his best ever vocal performance on each and every track. And they were so lucky with the weather.

“For weeks we literally lived Europiana,” Jack enthuses. “The band would arrive and I’d make a big lunch, eaten outside with loads of rose. Then we’d go inside to write in what is usually my living room but it became a studio. The sun and fun seeped into the songs.”

You can hear that warm glow throughout Europiana. It’s the sound of blue skies and sunny days. No doubt it will be the soundtrack to the summer. Get ready to soak it up.
