Last week, when we caught up with UK-based singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti for an interview, one thing became immediately clear: he’s an artist that operates on his own terms. Over the course of his decade-long career, he’s earned every inch he’s been given. He’s toured extensively, playing to all that will listen, he’s released albums on a schedule that suits him, and he’s stayed true to his own artistic vision.
Now, with the release of his latest album Singing To Stranges, he continues this trend. The album rings true to where he currently stands as an artist; it’s a true representation of his evolution as an artist – it’s expansive, but authentically so.
On his new album Singing To Strangers, UK-based singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti invites listeners into his intimate, romantic world.
Throughout the new album’s sprawling fifteen track duration, Savoretti makes it clear that his sound is evolving. From the cinematic backing vocals and string arrangements on album-opener Candlelight, a concrete mission statement is established.
Singing To Strangers is an ambitious and album that manages to feel both grounded and far-reaching. Sound-wise, it knows no bounds… but the raw romanticism of the lyrics brings it straight back down to earth.
As Savoretti grapples with the concept of performing for “strangers”, he creates a unique and truly interesting perspective. He flicks seamlessly between the intimacy and isolation of his profession – and in doing so, invites audiences into his mind as an artist.
Singing To Strangers is undoubtedly Jack Savoretti’s most ambitious release to date, but also his most fully-formed. Do yourself a favour and listen to the new album above.
