With his UK tour selling out fast, Jack Savoretti releases his stirring new single ‘Candlelight’ which impacts February 1st on BMG Records. The single is taken from his stunning new album ‘Singing to Strangers’, out March 15th. The album is the follow up to his two gold discs ‘Written in Scars’ (2014) and ‘Sleep No More’ (2016).
Produced by Cam Blackwood (George Ezra) and recorded in Rome at Ennio Morricone’s studio this summer, the 12 track album features Jack’s acclaimed live band: guitarists Pedro Vito and Sam Lewis; bassist Sam Davies, drummer Jesper Lind, Davide Rossi (Coldplay, Goldfrapp) on strings and musical director Nikolai Torp on keys.
‘Candlelight’, co-written with Joel Potts (Athlete, Ezra), is an intoxicating rhapsody of strings, choral harmonies, sinuous bass and guitar, with Savoretti’s woody, heartfelt rasp perfectly woven in between. “The studio is in the basement of this huge church and the atmosphere in there was essential when recording ‘Candlelight’” says Jack “that track became the calling card of the album.”
