Q is premiering Jack Savoretti‘s new video for Catapult – which the singer-songwriter introduces himself.
The track taken from album Written In Scars is the singer’s, who has just announced an acoustic show at London’s Cadogan Hall on 23 March, latest single.
“I walked into the studio to write with [fellow singer-songwriter] Jon Green having been away from home for what seemed like forever and was just looking forward to go home and see my family and that was how it begun,” says Savoretti of the song’s origins.
“Writing with Jon is always really easy, we are always on the same page and he comes up with magic each time we work together. This was a really easy one to write and it just flowed out from there. We did pretty much everything in one day and then he touched it up a little later. When it was finished we both felt is was special and it feels like it came at just the right time.
“The song is about missing someone and doing everything it takes to get back to the one you love. Many times you feel like there are so many obstacles between you and that person and days just start getting longer and it seems like it’s so far out of reach that you just wished there was a quick way to be catapulted over all of it. It’s almost as if they are the prisoner in the castle and you are breaking in but then they are the one that rescues you. We wanted to capture the emotion of the song in the same way that a portrait can bring one to life. We knew director Chris Faith was the man for the job and he delivered.”
