Finishing his hugely successful sold out winter UK tour tonight, Jack Savoretti today releases a stunning live version of ‘Human’ featuring country pop duo, Ward Thomas. Recorded live at Jack’s sold out show at SSE Arena Wembley in May the track is taken from the special edition of his Number 1 charting, third consecutive gold-certified album ‘Singing To Strangers’ – out December 6th on BMG.
One of the highlights from his Wembley show, Jacks’ cover of The Killers’ ‘Human’, featuring Ward Thomas’ spine-tingling harmonies, is beautifully moving. On the track Ward Thomas said, “After singing Human with Jack on tour in Europe over the Summer, it was a huge highlight to sing it with him on stage at Wembley! Even better that we have this recording to remind us of that night.”
This is no three-b-sides-and-a-Live-in-Pompeii-version-of-the-big-single. Singing To Strangers: Special Edition features three brand new studio tracks, ‘Closer’ and ‘Waiting For The Sun’, plus a stunning original festive track ‘Christmas Morning. Other highlights include the Radio 2 A-list smash ‘Youth & Love’ feat. Mika, ‘Music’s Too Sad Without You’ (Jack’s hit duet with Kylie Minogue), ‘Candlelight’ from his Radio 2 Ken Bruce Piano Session and Jack’s collaboration with UK artist Sigma, ‘You And Me As One’.
Here, then, again, anew, is Jack Savoretti’s masterpiece, offering love and warmth and togetherness in cold and fractious times. He began the year singing to strangers. He’s ending it singing to friends – hundreds of thousands of them.
