New one from Jack Savoretti, “Too Much History” is a real banger/earworm. Sizzling soulful vocals….
Following the release of his critically acclaimed # 1 album “Europiana,” U.K. singer/songwriter Jack Savoretti debuts the official video for his new single.
Written with Joel Pott and co-produced by Cam Blackwood and Joel Pott at Abbey Road Studios, “Too Much History” features a backdrop of beats, strings and Jack’s wife and daughter on backing vocals.
The accompanying video, directed by collective RUTA, tells the story of two old ladies playing the most nerve- wracking game of chess of their lives, with each piece and move from the game controlling the world around them.
Says Jack about the video, “So excited about working with Santiago and Horatio (RUTA) and so grateful to them for bringing to life the aspiration, eccentricity and glamour that is Europiana.”
As the seventh full-length from Jack, “Europiana” serves as the follow-up to the singer/songwriter’s breakthrough 2019 album, “Singing to Strangers”, his third consecutive gold seller and first U.K. album chart topper which has amassed more than 65 million streams.
Produced by Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, London Grammar, Florence & The Machine), “Europiana” was recorded late last year (2020) at Abbey Road Studios, with Jack’s longtime touring band.
Lead single, “Who’s Hurting Who”, is a disco-fueled pop track featuring the legendary Nile Rodgers. John Oates also contributed to the album, playing guitar and singing backing vocals, from Nashville, on the lush track, “When You’re Lonely.”
- Jack heads out on a 12-date U.K. tour in spring 2022, kicking off at the Plymouth Pavilions and finishing up at London’s Eventim Apollo.
