Four years ago, British singer/songwriter Jack Savoretti quit making music after struggling as an independent artist and a two-year legal dispute with his former manager. But having quit, Savoretti suddenly couldn’t stop writing which ultimately led to his critically acclaimed third LP, 2011’s Before The Storm. Earlier this year, he ultimately signed his first ever major record deal with BMG Chrysalis, the label will release Jack’s freshly announced fourth studio album Written In Scars next February. Savoretti spent most of this year writing and his new single/EP Tie Me Down is out now.
Tie Me Down was released the UK/Europe digitally on October 20, 2014 via BMG Chrysalis, it’s available to buy from iTunes. Physical release follows on November 03. Written by Jack Savoretti, the four tracks of Tie Me Down are co-written and produced by Matty Benbrook. You can take a full listen, the EP is streaming above (via Savoretti’s Soundcloud).
Written In Scars is set for release on February 09, 2014 via BMG Chrysalis. The album will contain Tie Me Down, future single Home and another nine new songs, it’s up for digital pre-order via iTunes. In a label press release, Jack said of his new effort:
“A lot of the songs were written with Sam Dixon, who is Adele’s musical director and Sia’s main co-writer. I also wrote with Matt Benbrook who has worked with Paolo Nutini, Jake Bugg and Faithless and finally, of course, with my guitarist Pedro Vito and Seb Sternberg (Pedro’s production partner). I drew inspiration from them all. The heartbeat of the album is rhythm. It’s all about groove, drums and bass. The sound was key – it came before the songs or the subject matter. I completely changed the way I’d previously written, abandoning structure for a looser, loopier, almost circular approach.“
Jack Savoretti will be touring the UK in February and March 2015, you can order your tickets soon from his website.
