Jack Savoretti says his upcoming record, 'Europiana',"wouldn't exist without Nile Rodgers".
The 'What More Can I Do?' singer has unveiled his seventh studio album and released the new single, 'Whos Hurting Who, featuring the disco legend himself.
Jack said: “Nile brings groove, glamour and chic that is everything that 'Europiana' is. Europiana wouldn’t exist without Nile Rodgers!”
The 11-track collection - which is about love and family - was recorded at Jack’s Oxfordshire home and even features his wife, actress Jemma Powell, and their three kids on some of the tracks.
He said: “For weeks we literally lived 'Europiana'.
“The band would arrive and I’d make a big lunch, eaten outside with loads of rose. Then we’d go inside to write in what is usually my living room but it became a studio. The sun and fun seeped into the songs.”
On what sets it apart from previous LP 'Singing to Strangers', Jack explained: “'Singing to Strangers’ was my first album that wasn’t all about me, which I loved.“’Europiana’ pushes that further. There are more characters and bigger concepts. I’m looking out at the world, not inwards.”
He added: “'Europiana' isn’t a sound. It’s references and inspirations and the emotions they evoke,” Jack says. “It’s the music of my childhood summers, remade for today.”
The 37-year-old star has also announced a 12-date UK tour, which kicks off at Plymouth Pavilions on March 24, 2022, and concludes at London’s Eventim Apollo on April 13, 2022.
'Europiana' is released on June 25.
