Paolo Nutini is set to release his new album and fourth studio set Last Night In The Bittersweet on July 1st via Atlantic Records. He launches the album by sharing two new singles, Lose It and Through The Echoes. Earlier this week Paolo announced seven intimate UK shows which sold-out immediately, kicking off in Sheffield this weekend and include 4 shows at Londons 100 Club next week.
A recap of everything Paolo has achieved to date reiterates his status as one of British musics 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 8 millionglobal 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 Platinumcertifications in the UK alone. Paolo has previously headlined festivals including Glastonburys Other Stage and Benicàssim, as well as huge arena shows at Londons O2 and Glasgows OVO Hydro.
Last Night In The Bittersweet will only extend that phenomenal success. Its 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 new single 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 is a timeless classic in the lineage of Ben E. King and Otis Redding, with Nutinis vocal delivery reminding us why he got snapped up by Atlantic in the first place.
Last Night In The Bittersweet was produced by Paolo Nutini alongside Dani Castelar and Gavin Fitzjohn. It was written by Paolo, with some select co-write contributions from members of his band.
Last Night In The Bittersweet is now available to pre-order, Notable physical formats include a clear green double-vinyl which is available exclusively from Paolos official store, while key Scottish indie stores are offering an exclusive white marble double-vinyl.
Paolo Nutini will be touring this summer when he hits the road headlining TRNSMT and Victorious Festivals and two large outdoor shows in Bristol and Belfast, plus very special guest billing at Liam Gallaghers huge Knebworth Park show. Meanwhile, European dates include a tour of Italy in July as well as the Montreux Jazz Festival and Lollapalooza Berlin.
