Jack Savoretti today unveils an exciting collaboration with Natalie Imbruglia, who lends her impeccable vocals to his stunning new single ‘Ultime Parole’, taken from his new, first-ever-all-Italian-speaking album Miss Italia – out May 17th.

Today’s new single follows the beautiful collaboration between Jack Savoretti and Italian superstar singer-songwriter Zucchero on the renowned track ‘Senza una Donna (Without A Woman)’, as well as album opener ‘Come Posso Raccontare’.

Natalie says of the collaboration; “I had so much fun recording ‘Ultime Parole’ with Jack. I’m thrilled he invited me to collaborate on this beautiful song that’s reconnected me with my Italian heritage. My dad will be so proud! Jack and I have known each other since the early days of our career. He is an incredible artist and I think our voices really complement each other.”

Jack adds; “This song is a very important song to me, and I wanted someone very important to sing it with. Natalie and I always had these 6 degrees of separation since the day I started making music, but having known each other over the years not only do I have the utmost love and respect for her but we both have the utmost love and respect for all things Italian, mostly for our Italian heritage.”

The album came at an important moment in Jack’s life, as his Italian father had recently passed away. Jack explains; “My father was the anchor that tied me to Italy, the connection to my roots that I felt I was at risk of losing without him. So I went back to school. I didn’t want to imitate Italian music, I wanted to make it my own, combining everything I had learned over almost 20 years of experience from working in America, England, and Italy, merging Anglo-Saxon singer-songwriting with Italian to create something unique. I first had to learn to write in Italian before making MY album in Italian.”

Jack’s reputation as a singer-songwriter is perfectly epitomised by the kinds of collaborators he attracts, previously including cultural icons the likes of Bob Dylan, Kylie Minogue, Shania Twain, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Nile Rodgers among many others. However, and albeit being bi-lingual from birth, writing in Italian was uncharted territory for an artist who has been making and sold millions of albums for over sixteen years, releasing seven over this period, two of which have reached #1 in the UK album charts – Singing To Strangers in 2019 and his most recent release, Europiana, in 2021.
