Following the announcement of his highly-anticipated new album ‘Europiana’, Jack Savoretti reveals the sun-drenched video for his disco fuelled new single ‘Who’s Hurting Who’, featuring Nile Rodgers.
Directed by Giorgio Testi (The 1975, Celeste, Gorillaz) and production company Pulse Films, the 70s inspired video is shot between London and Portofino, Italy. Featuring Dot Williams and Nile Rodgers, the retro video takes us on a journey through Europiana. “It’s a patchwork of postcards, it’s a suggestion rather than a story.” Jack says of the video. Watch the video below.
‘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.
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.
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.
Jack has also 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.
