NO. 1 UK ALBUM EUROPIANA OUT NOW
Following the release of his critically acclaimed, UK No. 1 album “Europiana” U.K. Singer/songwriter Jack Savoretti debuts the official video for his new single, “Too Much History” today. Watch it HERE.
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.

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 No. 1 on the U.K. Album chart which has amassed over 65 million streams globally and earned praise from such outlets as The Telegraph (who hailed its “heady love songs mixing lush orchestrations with a tight, electric band”
Produced by Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, London Grammar, Florence & The Machine), Europiana was recorded late last year at Abbey Road Studios with Jack’s longtime touring band. Jack’s irresistible lead single, “Who’s Hurting Who” a disco-fueled pop track featuring the legendary Nile Rodgers arrives as a gloriously upbeat piece of soul-pop, perfectly showcasing his alluring vocal presence. John Oates also contributed to the album, playing guitar and singing backing vocals, from Nashville, on the lush track, “When You’re Lonely”.
