Jack Savoretti - Europiana
‘Europiana’ is the follow-up to Jack’s breakthrough 2019 album ‘Singing to
Strangers’, his third consecutive gold seller and first UK number one. While that
album was recorded in Rome at Ennio Morricone’s studio, this new disc was conceived in between lockdowns at Jack’s Oxfordshire home.

“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.”
And what a view! There’s a confidence and an emotional swagger that drives these
songs onto new heights. Jack has never been in better voice, turning in his best ever vocal performance on each and every track. And they were so lucky with the
“For weeks we literally lived Europiana,” Jack enthuses. “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.”
You can hear that warm glow throughout ‘Europiana’. It’s the sound of blue skies and sunny days. No doubt it will be the soundtrack to the summer. Get ready to soak it up.
