Hot on the heels of his triumphant UK tour earlier this month, Jack Savoretti has announced seven further UK dates for next year – including a visit to Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on Friday, 24 March.
The Anglo-Italian singer songwriter will wind up at London’s prestigious Royal Festival Hall on 29 March.
Co-written with Samuel Dixon (Sia, Adele, Paloma Faith) and Jon Green (James Bay, James Morrison), Savoretti’s rich and emotional new single I’m Yours is out now. You can listen to it below.
The heartfelt ballad is the second single to be released from his new album, Sleep No More, following the Radio 2 playlisted lead single When We Were Lovers.
Speaking about his latest album, Savoretti says, “It’s the first album I’ve written as an adult… as somebody trying to be an adult at least. It’s no longer me against the world.
“[Last album] Written in Scars was my final hurrah: ‘It’s me against the world, f*ck you, we’re doing it for ourselves’. This one isn’t. It’s a late-night conversation. It’s 2 o’clock in the morning, by a fireplace, coming to realisations, insomniac ideas. It’s the stuff that keeps you up at night.
“I thought, ‘Maybe I should try and write an album for guys like me, what we’re going through. How it is hard being a dad, it’s hard keeping a job, it’s hard paying bills, it’s hard not to turn into an alcoholic or a drug addict at the same time. It was kind of accumulating all that as a theme. The struggles of the modern man!”
