UK AND EUROPEAN HEADLINE TOUR ANNOUNCED INCLUDING TWO SOLD OUT NIGHTS AT ALEXANDRA PALACE
“He’s re-emerged with a significantly broader musical palette and a sound which, on the heroic Shine A Light, borders on anthemic….Lose it merges Split Enz’s I Got You with the relentlessness of Krautrock; Heart Filled up begins in almost hymnal fashion and finishes like late-period Julian Cope…. He’s pushing his own boundaries” – MOJO 4*

Today, Paolo Nutini releases his new album and fourth studio set ‘Last Night In The Bittersweet’. Listen HERE. ‘Last Night In The Bittersweet’ is a 70-minute epic that spans the distance from classic rock to post-punk to hypnotic Krautrock, in the process proving its value as his deepest, most varied, most accomplished, and ultimately most rewarding set so far.
The insistent Motorik rhythms of ‘Lose It’ brings shades of early ‘70s German bands like Can and Neu!, and are a product of Paolo writing increasingly on bass guitar. At the other end of the spectrum, ‘Through The Echoes’, which is currently A-List at Radio 2 is a timeless classic in the lineage of Ben E. King and Otis Redding, with Nutini’s vocal delivery reminding us why he got snapped up by Atlantic in the first place. The album opens with ‘Afterneath’ which samples Patricia Arquette’s memorable speech in the final scenes of True Romance, the 1993 cult classic written by Quentin Tarantino.‘Acid Eyes’ is the kind of love song, hopeful but mournful, that sticks in your mind, shapes your mood and won’t let go, whereas ‘Petrified In Love’ has the cheerful spikiness of Squeeze.
Notable physical formats include a clear green double-vinyl which is available exclusively from Paolo’s official store, while key Scottish indie stores are offering an exclusive white marble double-vinyl.
Paolo recently performed with Liam Gallagher at Knebworth and announced details of a headline UK and European tour, which commences in Limerick on August 21stand includes two nights at the historic Alexandra Palace in London. Any remaining tickets are on sale HERE. Last month Paolo performed on Later…with Jools Holland – watch ‘Through The Echoes’ HERE and ‘Lose It’ HERE.
A recap of everything Paolo has achieved to date reiterates his status as one of British music’s biggest success stories. Two of his three albums to date, ‘Sunny Side Up’ and ‘Caustic Love’, have hit #1 on the UK album charts as he amassed 8million global album sales, 8 million UK single sales, and 1.5 billion global streams. The Ivor Novello winner and multiple BRIT Award nominee has also collected a remarkable 18 Platinum certifications in the UK alone.
