Britain's Got Talent stars Jack Pack debut new single: 'Say You Love Me'
Following a show-stopping performance on Britain’s Got Talent’s live semi-finals this year, Britain’s new swing kings – Jack Pack – are back with a new original song ‘Say You Love Me’, taken from their self-titled debut album, which is in stores on 30 October 2015.
The heartfelt track, co-written and produced by Future Cut (who have produced records for Sir Tom Jones and Olly Murs), was recorded with a live 72-piece orchestra in London.
‘Say You Love Me’ was co-written by One Direction’s hit writer Ed Drewett and John Reid (who has written for Tina Turner and Rod Stewart).
The timeless Bacharach-esque song is one of three original tracks on Jack Pack’s forthcoming album, which also features contemporary swing covers of much-loved classics such as ‘Light My Fire’ (The Doors), ‘I Put A Spell on You’ (Jay Hawkins) and ‘My Way’ (Frank Sinatra).
Jack Pack said the lush orchestral production in ‘Say You Love Me’ harks back to the quality of records from the yesteryears.
Andrew Bourn of Jack Pack said, “The song has a distinct 60s sound reminiscent of early Bacharach with more than a hint of John Barry. It feels like something out of an old Hollywood movie.
“It was an amazing experience to record this with a 72-piece orchestra of highly-respected musicians. There’s no smoke and mirrors. It was done in two takes at most. Nobody makes albums this way any more, so it’s really quite special,” he said.
Martin McCafferty adds, “Listening to ‘Say You Love Me’, you wouldn’t know this was written in the last year, let alone this century – would you?”
“It has a real classic feel, which we love, and it sits beautifully next to age-old records like ‘I Put A Spell On You’ and ‘My Way’ on our album. We’re incredibly proud to have a gem like this to call our own. We hope it stands the test of time like the other songs.”
Jack Pack are Alfie Palmer, Andrew Bourn, Martin McCafferty and Sean Ryder Wolf. They will be performing at BBC Proms in The Park on 12 September at London’s Hyde Park.
