:: This album is absolutely massive! A must-listen from first second to last!
Written In Scars drops officially in the UK/Europe tomorrow (February 09, 2015) via BMG. The album will be available as download, CD and 12″ vinyl LP. You can buy the digital album from iTunes or order your physical copy of Written In Scars directly from Jack Savoretti’s Store or from Amazon.
The album is streaming in its entirety above (via Savoretti’s Youtube). In a BMG press release, Jack explained the different musical approach for his fourth studio album:
“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 directly from his website. The acoustic version of the album’s second single Home is featured as bonus track on the digital iTunes version of Written In Scars. A few days ago, Jack Savoretti released a video for the alternate Home version directed by Chris Faith – watch/listen below.
