Jack Savoretti has been having an amazing run this year, with the release of his Number 1 charting, third consecutive gold-certified album 'Singing To Strangers' and a sold-out winter UK tour. To top it all, Savoretti has released a stunning live cover of 'Human' by The Killers, featuring country-pop duo Ward Thomas.
The performance was recorded live at Savoretti's final sold-out show at SSE Arena Wembley in May. The track is featured on the upcoming special edition of 'Singing To Strangers'.
Speaking about the performance and the recording, Ward Thomas said, "After singing 'Human' with Jack on tour in Europe over the Summer, it was a huge highlight to sing it with him on stage at Wembley! Even better that we have this recording to remind us of that night."
Savoretti's guitar and voice create a peaceful mood that transforms The Killers' upbeat number into a truly moving melody. Listening to it, it's easy to feel transported to a world of calm and soulful bliss, if only for a moment.
However, as much as we loved Savoretti's work on the song, Ward Thomas' out-of-this-world harmonies are what make the recording one truly beautiful piece of art. All three singers perfectly complement one another and this is a track that you could listen to over and over.
'Singing To Strangers: Special Edition' features three brand new studio tracks — 'Closer', 'Waiting For The Sun' and a stunning original festive track 'Christmas Morning'.
Other highlights include the Radio 2 A-list smash 'Youth and Love' featuring Mika, 'Music's Too Sad Without You' (his hit duet with Kylie Minogue), 'Candlelight' from his Radio 2 Ken Bruce Piano Session, and Jack's collaboration with UK artiste Sigma 'You And Me As One'.
