The lauded soul rock singer-songwriter marks his return with a new album and UK tour dates
I don't want to speak on anyone's behalf, but the Scots hold Paolo Nutini in a very special place in our hearts. He's one of the most unique and treasured artists to come from our nation and we ferociously support him like a parent does a child. That's not to say that the whole of the UK doesn't dote on him either. In 2009 the fresh-faced and wild-haired twenty-something won the hearts of the masses with love-struck debut singles such as 'Last Request'.
After 2014 and the release of his third album Caustic Love, it was radio silence from the star and it seemed as though the name 'Paolo Nutini' was a distant memory of days gone by. After waiting patiently for almost a decade, we finally welcome him back to the music scene with open arms. The agonising eight-year hiatus came to an end earlier this month when the gravel-voiced singer announced a handful of intimate shows around the UK along with two new singles. What a treat.
The smaller gigs inevitably sold out right away, but earlier this week the 'Candy' performer announced a whole new set of UK and European tour dates where he'll showcase his upcoming album Last Night In The Bittersweet, set to release on Friday 1 July. The performances will be his first in five years, so tickets will be highly sought-after.

He's got a busy summer planned before he embarks on his headline tour, but he does have a lot of lost time to make up for.

What'll be on Paolo Nutini's setlist?
At his gig at The Leadmill in Sheffield earlier this month Nutini performed some of the well-loved tracks from his records throughout the past 15 years or so including 'Candy', 'Pencil Full Of Lead' and 'Coming Up Easy' from the Sunny Side Up days. Hits from 2014's critically acclaimed Caustic Love were also performed including 'Scream (Funk My Life Up)' and 'Iron Sky'.
He debuted a handful of songs from the upcoming album as well including 'Children Of The Stars', 'Desperation' and 'Radio' and you can expect that the tour will predominantly focus on Last Night In The Bittersweet. You can count on him bringing out 'Jenny Don't Be Hasty' and 'Alloway Grove' for old time's sake though.
What's Paolo Nutini's latest release?
Nutini's evolution from These Streets to Caustic Love demonstrates a blend of folk-rock, jazz, pop-rock and blue-eyed soul but his lyricism has remained touching and profound throughout, a trend which certainly translates into his latest release.
Earlier this month the Paisley-born artist released two singles ahead of the upcoming album, 'Through The Echoes' and 'Lose It'. The former is a tender ballad which is reminiscent of the tender and forlorn tunes of his early days while 'Lose It' is a pop-punk anthem laced with a nostalgic 90s sound. The rest of the new material is due to come out with Last Night In The Bittersweet on Friday 1 July.
