Album Highlights: Scream (Funk My Life Up), Let Me Down Easy, Numpty, Better Man, Iron Sky & Someone Like You.
After a 5 year hiatus, Paolo Nutini is back and better than ever with a brand new album. His third studio album ‘Caustic Love‘ was just released on April 11, 2014 and is already well on its way to becoming the fastest selling album of 2014 so far.
The 27-year-old Scottish singer was the biggest selling male artist in the UK in 2009 & 2010. His debut album ‘These Streets’ sold over 2 million copies worldwide and produced mega hits such as ‘Last Request’ & ‘Jenny Don’t Be Hasty’. His second studio album ‘Sunny Side Up‘ was released in 2009, debuted at No. 1 and is now certified 5x platinum.
Caustic Love is my favourite album of his yet. Nutini’s new songs are more soulful, bluesy & mature than his previous releases and his stellar songwriting really shines on this album. Tracks ‘Scream (Funk My Life Up)’, and ‘Fashion’ are faster groove-filled songs that will make you want to move while ballads ‘Better Man’, ‘One Day’ & ‘Iron Sky’ are beautifully written and really focus on Paolo’s sultry, textured vocals. ‘Let Me Down Easy’ features Janelle Monae and is a clear standout track that is full of soul and emotion. ‘Numpty’ is another standout track with its hip-swaying melody and cute, cheeky lyrics – I guarantee you won’t be able to listen to ‘Numpty’ without grinning.
