The Scottish artist’s new material comes seven years after his last release; his last single “One Day” was released in 2014. Nutini also confirmed the title and release date for his fourth studio album, Last Night In The Bittersweet is set to be released on 1st July 2022 via Atlantic Records. Although some tracks were co-written by members of his band, Nutini is listed as the principal songwriter for the album. The singer also co-produced the album with Dani Castelar and Gavin Fitzjohn. Nutini and Fitzjohn worked together on the singer’s second studio album Sunny Side Up. The forthcoming album will also mark his first full release since 2014, the singer released his third studio album Caustic Love on 14th April 2014.
An insider has spoken with The Sun newspaper Bizarre column concerning the reason behind the seven-year wait for new music, “Paolo has spent so long working on this new music that he has been extra hands-on in making sure everything is completely perfect. He cares so much about the songs and wants to give his fans, who have waited years for new music, the best experience possible. Paolo was insistent that only a handful of people in his inner circle listened to the songs before they were released. And hardly anyone has heard the album yet.”
The source continued, “He is a very private person and wasn’t going to risk anything leaking at the last moment. Things have been kept under lock and key for months but now he is finally ready to release it.”
The singer has been on hiatus from the stage since 2017 and is set to make his live return this year. The “New Shoes” hitmaker will play an intimate show at Sheffield’s Leadmill on Saturday 14th May 2022 and will perform a string of dates at London’s famed 100 Club. The singer starts his four-day residency at the venue on 16th May 2022 and concludes his London run on 20th May 2022.
Nutini will also be participating in the festival season this year; the singer is set to headline the Scottish festival TRNSMT and Portsmouth held event Victorious Festival. On Thursday 23rd June 2022 the singer will perform a large outdoor show at Bristol’s Canons Marsh Amphitheatre, Nutini will also appear at an outdoor venue on Thursday 25th August 2022 at Belfast’s Custom House Square.
