Brought up in an Italian-English family, Jack Savoretti became used to different sounds, different influences.

Out on February 9th, 'Written In Scars' is worth filing alongside The Lumineers, say, or even fellow troubadour George Ezra.
Ahead of this, Clash is able to premiere album opener 'Back To Me'. An imposing, infectious return, it was crafted with producer (and Adele collaborator) Samuel Dixon.
