Jack Savoretti: Europiana Tour
“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.” Once again, Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, London Grammar, Florence & The Machine), has produced the album, recorded late last year at Abbey Road with Jack’s longtime touring band. John Oates plays guitar and sang backing vocals, from Nashville, on the lush ‘When You’re Lonely’.
Much of the 11 track album concerns itself with family, friendship, and the precarious nature of love so it’s not surprising that Jack’s wife and children sing on a few tracks. “’Singing to Strangers’ was my first album that wasn’t all about me, which I loved,” Jack says. “’Europiana’ pushes that further. There are more characters and bigger concepts. I’m looking out at the world, not inwards.”
