This is undoubtedly my single favorite album of all time. It feels like such a perfect culmination of all the themes and ideas Fleet Foxes has been working with since 2008. It answers many of the questions found on both Helplessness Blues and Crack-Up, and represents an incredible maturation and growth in Robin Pecknold's perspective. Their other albums are certainly masterpieces, but this, in my opinion, is their magnum opus. I doubt it will be recognized as such in its time. isaiah_stuart

Paolo Nutini: the comeback kid

Paolo nutini has been conspicuous by his eight-year absence. as he breaks his silence with new album ‘last night in the bittersweet’, he tells rolling stone uk what he’s been up to and why he can’t wait to perform live.

By Nick Reilly

Paolo Nutini performs live at the 100 Club

“Right, enough’s enough,” tweeted Scottish superstar Lewis Capaldi in early 2020, “where the fuck is Paolo Nutini?”

The tweet clearly struck a chord. It garnered 13,000 retweets from a legion of fans who, like Capaldi , were eagerly awaiting the return of one of Scotland’s most distinctive voices. At that point, it had been six years since Nutini ’s acclaimed third album, Caustic Love — a record which saw him delivering a timeless and enduring love letter to R&B and soul. But when touring duties for that album came to an end, he largely disappeared from the limelight. Bar a handful of charity performances in 2017, there was nothing to hint at a full return.

Some two years and the small matter of a pandemic later, the artist has finally made his much-anticipated comeback with Last Night in the Bittersweet , a record which justifies that absence and is arguably his most complete to date. It sees Nutini’s blue-eyed-soul vocals paired with a vast, kaleidoscopic sound that takes in everything from the recent trend for spoken word on the rocking ‘Lose It’ to hints of Krautrock on the sprawling ‘Heart Filled Up’.

Still, the question remains: just where has Nutini been for the past eight years?

The answer emerges as Rolling Stone UK sits down with him at a London hotel in mid-May. As we talk, he is at the end of a rousing five-night residency at the legendary 100 Club which has been attended by fellow singers Capaldi and Geordie star Sam Fender, who shared Instagram videos from the show and hailed Nutini as one of his teenage heroes.

“The realities of doing this and the whole experience doesn’t feel entirely natural to me,” he says of performing. “I’m not the most extroverted person, but when you’re on a stage you find yourself opening yourself up in that way. The more vulnerable the better, too, when you’re trying to give your audience a piece of you and you’re hoping to get something back. Once that ends, I’ve always had to recalibrate my fucking brain.”

That process of recalibration, it turns out, took the form of a journey to retrace his steps. He had lived the life of a global touring artist but, as is so often the case, found himself restricted to doing short stop-offs in cities which meant he was unable to truly acquaint himself with his surroundings.

“Sometimes you’d just get a couple of nights in these places and a small taste of what they’re about. I tried to go back and spend some time there,” he says of his globetrotting downtime. “I’m lucky I’m able to do that. I’d go away on a Monday and say I was coming back on a Thursday, but I’d return two months later, having made some great, mad experiences along the way.”

“I’m not the most extroverted person, but when you’re on a stage you find yourself opening yourself up” — Paolo Nutini

Throughout, Nutini says he never stopped writing; indeed his travel adventures have shaped the sound of the record. Its title, he explains, reflects a period of personal turbulence he has been living through behind the scenes.

“There was a long period of life for me that could have been defined as bittersweet. The juxtaposition between the ups and the downs was really quick. It wasn’t in terms of my career, just emotionally,” he confides.

“I think I became very content in that rhythm and I guess there was a point where I sought to move out of that and become a happier person. I’m still in the process, but it was a conscious attempt to figure out what was causing that and to try and conquer that.”

Although he refuses to dwell on the subject for too long, he adds: “A lot of the stuff I was doing to myself, I wasn’t dealing with myself in ways that were the healthiest. I was just compromising who I was a lot and I wasn’t giving myself a lot of care or respect. That was holding me in a position that I wanted to get out of.”

paolo nutini last night in the bittersweet tour setlist

These experiences are only too clear on the album. A late stand-out comes in ‘Abigail’, a Bert Jansch-esque folk number which sees the 35-year-old Nutini wistfully dreaming of a life of domestic bliss with a wife and children. “Lord I wanna get happy, before I get old ,” he purrs on the contemplative track.

“I wanna be a happy person and I’m not always content,” he says of the song, which was written in his parents’ garden while he bubbled up with them during lockdown.

“But again, it was recognising this need to make changes in order to be a happier person. It’s not something that someone can exclusively do for you. There’s so many different reasons why people could be looking at themselves in the way I was, but it became very clear that the problem was me.”

“There was a long period of life for me that could have been defined as bittersweet. The juxtaposition between the ups and the downs was really quick” — Paolo Nutini

Still, this introspection is merely one aspect of a record which overwhelmingly fizzes with the energy of a man who is happy to be back at the day job once more.

Take the opening track, ‘Afterneath’, which opens with a soul-searing howl from Nutini, before psych-driven guitars eventually make way for an unlikely sample of Patricia Arquette’s memorable speech in the final scenes of True Romance , the 1993 cult classic written by Quentin Tarantino.

In order to use it, Nutini personally sought clearance from the film-maker himself. “It’s a brutal film but also a beautiful story as well and I just always wanted to use that little speech,” he tells me. “We asked Tarantino if we could use it and, luckily, he said yes, which we were told wasn’t entirely common practice, which made it nicer. It was a cool thing.”

Elsewhere, the inspiration for the aforementioned narrated style on ‘Lose It’ struck while he burned the midnight oil in the recording studio.

“When you start a song that late and you come out with an idea, if someone’s reaction is just more than ‘Let’s fucking go to bed,’ then you’re onto something. And that’s what happened.

“I’m not sure what led me down that path. It was a quick song to come together and a lot of what you hear came from the exceptional players that were able to add to it.”

The timing of his return, Nutini reveals, has left him with a newfound appreciation for what he does. Although his latest collection of songs is far from a pandemic album, he says the lack of community and socialising during that time certainly hastened his comeback.

“I’ve never stopped writing songs and writing ideas and that’s what gives me my kicks. Even if they sit half-finished for a year, I feel like I’m happy regardless of what I’m doing at the time,” he says.

“I’ve never stopped writing songs and writing ideas and that’s what gives me my kicks. Even if they sit half-finished for a year, I feel like I’m happy regardless of what I’m doing at the time” — Paolo Nutini

“But over the past two years, watching how it’s affected everybody, that social shutdown, it made me think that it is a real privilege to go out and communicate with people on such a scale. And to have the outlet of release that performing on a stage can give.”

Performances, no less, that include a headline set at TRNSMT Festival in Glasgow, a party-starting city in a country where the Paisley-born singer’s music has elevated him to godlike status. That set represents his biggest chance to finally show off his sprawling opus of a fourth album.

“I get the tunes out there and I already feel a bit lighter,” he says. “But it’s not just that; you’re giving other people a good buzz and a good kick. It’s a good feeling. It makes you feel like you’re doing something right.”

After such a long period away, you sense that none of his fans would argue with that.

A raw insight into Paolo Nutini’s sprawling emotional state as he takes us into the depths of his mind, uncovering an understanding of love and loss.

Review Overview

Our verdict.

The eight years since the release of Scottish singer-songwriter Nutini’s third album Caustic Love feels like decades, and so it’s appropriate that things feel very different from the outset of this much-anticipated new record. Opener Afterneath swirls into earshot with the ominous and slow creep of strings followed by the cries of the man himself – it’s a real surprise to listeners more accustomed to the jaunty folk of previous releases that made his name.

  • READ MORE: Coheed and Cambria – Vaxis – Act II: Window of the Waking Mind review: A rigorous expansion of the band’s mythology

Since breaking through in 2006, Nutini’s vulnerability and honesty in his writing style has generally seen him pigeonholed into the archetypal ‘heartbroken man with the acoustic guitar’ box, but this has always been reductive. His critically acclaimed albums in the years since, particularly These Streets and Sunny Side Up , not only solidified his place in the pop music world, but also demonstrated a hunger to spread his wings and push himself in new musical directions.

The long gestation of Last Night In The Bittersweet seems to have enabled him to throw off the last shackles of preconceptions, and enable him to fully stretch out musically – just check out the pounding beat of the bass guitar in Lose It , followed by the methodical rattling of guitar feedback. This is not the Paolo Nutini you’ve been expecting.

At 70 minutes, it is a lengthily record, but it’s clear that Nutini wants to cover the full gamut of his influences from the familiar to the very much not. So while there are plenty of moments of the Otis Redding-inspired blue eyed soul that we would expect, there’s also a sprinkling of feel-good indie rock, and even exploring Idles style post-punk and hypnotic Krautrock.

It would be easy for an album so stylistically diverse to lack an emotional core, and it’s a credit to Nutini, and his producing partners and musical compadres Gavin Fitzjohn and Dani Castelar that the shining light of sincerity and gracefulness is never lost.

Paolo Nutini - Last Night in the Bittersweet

As the album title suggests, Last Night In The Bittersweet is a far from wholly upbeat album, and Nutini runs the gamut here, from the anger of Lose it , the peaceful serenity of Stranded Words ,  the euphoria of Shine a Light , and tenderness of Everywhere .

However, it is Julianne , a track approaching the end of the album where Nutini’s truest form shines through. This emotional piano ballad exemplifies his roots as a musician, with links to previous works such as his top hit Last Request .

The familiarity of it lends to comparison with his previous work, and it’s striking how much more comfortable and assured he is as both songwriter and performer now. It is this confidence that creates the rawness that allows Julianne to stand out from the crowd.

While the heart of the record is Nutini and his vulnerability, the desire to map out so many diverse genres on one record does mean that the album as a whole lacks a little coherency and connection between tracks – perhaps this is inevitable when an artist casts his net this wide.

This is not to understate the power that each track on  Last Night In The Bittersweet has on its own merits, each one ruminating on a different aspect of love or loss and using the most immediate genre-specific tool to get there.

Throughout it all, the ever-present sense is that Nutini is trying to tell us that emotions are not one note – they are constantly moving, constantly changing, never consistent. Maybe it is this lack of connection that is what makes this album so remarkable to listeners. Nutini is not trying to be one note, he is wanting to feel it all – just try to pigeonhole him now.

Album Review: ‘Last Night in the Bittersweet’ - Paolo Nutini

Last night in the bittersweet is very much indebted to the agonies and ecstasies of love, much more dreamy-eyed and introspective in comparison to the longing and lust of caustic love. .

paolo nutini last night in the bittersweet tour setlist

(Originally posted on Luna Paper )

Paolo Nutini really is the Carmen Sandiego of the music world. Just where in the world was he all these years? 

The truth isn’t really as dramatic or mysterious as you might think: He travelled, gave random performances in random bars and clubs, wrote, listened to a lot of records during the pandemic, had his heart broken… 

‘ The realities of doing this and the whole experience doesn’t feel entirely natural to me ,’ Nutini told Rolling Stone . ‘ I’m not the most extroverted person, but when you’re on a stage you find yourself opening yourself up in that way. The more vulnerable the better, too, when you’re trying to give your audience a piece of you and you’re hoping to get something back. Once that ends, I’ve always had to recalibrate my fucking brain .’ 

And now, the Scottish singer returns to remind us why he’s in a class of his own on fourth album, Last Night in the Bittersweet, traversing incredibly vast sonic terrain while trying to make sense of the past eight years. 

‘Afterneath’ kicks off the record with a wild howl in the darkness, a killer cut of Zepplin-fuelled post-punk that delivers seductively menacing threats while sampling audio snippets from Quentin Tarantino’s 1993 film, True Romance (‘ I look back and I’m amazed/That my thoughts were so clear and true/That three words went through my mind endlessly/Repeating themselves like a broken record/You’re so cool’ ). It’s sex and vengeance all rolled into one and, wow , I wanna listen to it over and over again. 

Nutini’s thick Scottish drawl also shines through on interlude ‘Stranded Words,’ evoking the feel of a traditional Celtic paean, and the grimy, Krautrock-inspired ‘ Lose It .’ ‘ I could not seem to find/A way out of my worried mind ,’ he admits while backed by a rousing choir, pounding the pulpit like some sort of rambling beatnik preacher before reaching a state of transcendence. 

‘Desperation’ longs for escape, with a breezy, infectious energy that channels the bewitching majesty of Fleetwood Mac. ‘Petrified in Love’ is the kind of Beatles-esque, paisley-printed joy born to soundtrack an offbeat romcom montage (a compliment, I swear). ‘Children of the Stars’ is acid-tinged psychedelia that praises a ‘ woman of wonder ’ who moves restlessly and carefree. 

Yet Last Night in the Bittersweet is very much indebted to the agonies and ecstasies of love, much more dreamy-eyed and introspective in comparison to the longing and lust of Caustic Love.  

‘ I want love, I want love,’ Nutini sighs on the late-night coastal rock of ‘Radio,’ riding that bassy, smooth FM kind of groove. He declares himself a ‘ hopeless romantic’ on the phenomenal ‘Heart Filled Up,’ a Radiohead-style slow burn that just builds and builds until it explodes into a stunning, synth-fuelled aurora, adding hints of whimsy with piping horns and celestial bleeps. 

‘Acid Eyes,’ meanwhile, sees the singer pining for a lover who’s moved to Mexico, conjuring up a vivid slideshow full of buzzing cicadas and memories melting on broken flowers. A brooding post-rock lament, the track was originally intended as a duet with Danielle Haim , but Nutini was too ‘anxious’ to ask, which is strangely endearing. 

The ghostly post-rock of ‘ Shine a Light ’ has him laying content in another’s arms, unable to speak or think. On the country-dusted ‘Abigail,’ he’s envisioning domestic bliss, the sort that’ll make any girl listening wish it was them. 

The record is raw, anxious and unpredictable, but Nutini’s penchant for old-school soul still remains.  

Recent single ‘ Through the Echoes ’ already feels like a timeless classic, a pandemic-era ballad that combines the yearning soul of Otis Redding with the classic rock reverence of Creedence Clearwater Revival. ‘Everywhere’ recalls big band showstoppers like ‘ One Day ’ and ‘No Other Way’ from 2009’s Sunny Side Up, Nutini basically tearing his heart out to give us one of his best vocal performances yet. 

Last Night in the Bittersweet ends with a trifecta of gut-wrenching ballads, bringing plenty of romantic regret to the fore. 

The string-laced, Lennon-esque’ heartbreaker ‘Julianne’ bids farewell to an old love, making peace in a soft haze of swirling psychedelics. ‘Take Me, Take Mine’ is sweeping lounge jazz, Nutini’s voice so achingly tender at times, that it threatens to break as he begs a lover to take his peace of mind in place of their own.  

‘Writer,’ however, is a rich, varied summation of the past eight years. ‘ And I wanna thank you, for all that it’s cost you ,’ he sings over weathered guitar, ‘ For being the most beautiful part of my life ,’ before bidding ‘ thank you, good luck and goodnight,’ emerging from the experience weary, but much more clear-eyed and hopeful. 

From anyone else, Last Night in the Bittersweet would be too long, too bloated and too experimental.  

But in Nutini’s hands, it’s a sprawling magnum opus. It takes a couple of listens for it to truly sink in, but when it does, it’s truly euphoric.  

Produced alongside longtime collaborators Dani Castelar and Gavin Fitzjohn, the singer expands his oeuvre in new and charmingly batshit ways, which helps to give the record a raw, analogue feel, as if it were all performed live in the studio. The storytelling is goddamn poetry, turning existential crises and romantic confessions into gold spun hooks; the arrangements truly sublime as Nutini & co. build walls upon walls of sound. 

Although still criminally underrated, Nutini is at a rather enviable point in his career, able to present a record as diverse as this to his label and not be at the mercy of algorithms or trends; producing tracks that already sound timeless. Even his social media presence is limited to just promo stuff. In a sea of disposable pop, he’s a truly old-school act. 

Hope we don’t have to wait another eight years for the next album…

Paolo Nutini at Eden Sessions 2024 review: Scottish sensation stuns with effortlessly cool set

B ursting onto the scene in the early 2000s with his first and poppiest album, few would have imagined that 19-year-old Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini would go on to become the effortlessly cool indie-rock powerhouse he is today.

It's fair to say he's come a long way from his New Shoes days but now, at 37, Paolo Nutini has absolutely honed his craft - and luckily for long-serving fans (unlike some artists with careers spanning almost two-decades) appears just as happy playing the crowd-pleasing tracks that made his name, something the Eden Sessions crowd delighted in during the star's Wednesday night (June 19) performance.

Taking to the Eden Sessions stage for the fourth time, Nutini peppered his set with sing-along classics, while playing a handful of edgy beats from his 2022 album, Last Night In The Bittersweet, a genre-defying epic that spans classic rock, post-punk and the experimental German rock of kosmische music.

Opening with Afterneath from the aforementioned album, which actually features a writing credit to filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, thanks to its seductive sampled discourse from 1993 movie True Romance, allowed Nutini and the band to ease into the set, teasing unparalleled vocals with hauntingly beautiful howls, which took me back to watching The Who at Eden last summer. Of course, Nutini is no stranger to weaving the spoken word throughout his music for dramatic effect, with Iron Sky, one of his most powerful hits, famously featuring Charlie Chaplin's impassioned 1940 speech, The Great Dictator.

After picking up the pace with his sexy 2014 track Scream (Funk My Life Up), Nutini threw a delightfully charming curveball, in the form of his upbeat rendition of Stuck in the Middle with You, paying tribute to its Scottish writers.

Acid Eyes and Through the Echoes followed, and were even more evocative thanks to the atmospheric surroundings of the Eden Sessions stage. New Shoes was an undisputed crowd-pleaser, giving onlookers the chance to flex their vocal chords, to the most charmingly intoxicating result. Though thanks to some clever tinkering in the years since its initial release, the 2006 hit came off cooler and edgier than ever.

Having been revelling in anticipation for the whole evening for my favourite track, Iron Sky, I had one of the rare gig experiences where another song became my favourite of the night. Not that Iron Sky wasn't the passionate, moving performance I expected it to be, but it was actually the vulnerability of Candy that left me with a lump in my throat and was what I found myself humming all the way home.

My only gripe with the evening was that a few of my favourite older tracks were absent from the setlist, Better Man, Jenny Don't Be Hasty and Last Request to name a few, but I appreciate with such a stellar back-catalogue of hits, not all can make it. And for those who questioned Nutini's spot on this year's Eden Sessions line-up (like I said this was his fourth appearance) - just don't. With a sell-out spectacular of a show like the one he put on last night, it's clear this star has plenty left to give, with fans from far and wide happy to travel for the experience.

Special mention to his support Prima Queen, all-female indie/alternative rock band fronted by song-writing duo and best friends Louise Macphail (Bristol) and Kristin McFadden (Chicago, USA). Being fairly fresh on the scene, they had their work cut out warming up the crowd, most of whom were respectfully just waiting for the main event, but did a great job with amusing anecdotes and catchy songs.

Still to play at this year’s Eden Sessions are: Suede and Manic Street Preachers, June 29; The National plus special guests This Is The Kit, July 2; Rick Astley plus special guests The Lightning Seeds, July 3; Tom Grennan, July 5; JLS plus special guest Tinchy Stryder, July 12.

Last Night In The Bittersweet

Paolo Nutini

16 SONGS • 1 HOUR AND 12 MINUTES • JUL 01 2022

  • TRACKS TRACKS
  • DETAILS DETAILS

With his throaty, yearning vocal style Paolo Nutini is not a smooth Italian pop star as his name might imply, but rather a soul-influenced adult alternative singer/songwriter from Scotland. Nutini brokethrough to widespread acclaim with his 2006 debut, These Streets, hitting number three in the U.K. and spawning the hit "New Shoes." He topped the U.K. album charts with 2009's Sunny Side Up, the same year he took home a prestigious Ivor Novello Award. With 2014's Caustic Love, he again returned to the top of the British charts. Following an extended hiatus, Nutini returned in 2022 with Last Night in the Bittersweet.

Born in 1987 in Paisley, Scotland, Nutini was raised in a music-loving family where he was exposed to a range of folk, opera, jazz, and his father's R&B favorites. Shortly after discovering homegrown folkies like John Martyn, the teenaged Nutini left school to focus on his own musical development, eventually moving from Paisley to London at age 16 and garnering attention via local gigs. He inked a deal with the British arm of Atlantic Records two years later, just several weeks after his 18th birthday.

Working with Coldplay and Badly Drawn Boy producer Ken Nelson, Nutini generated an impressive amount of buzz before his first single, "Last Request," was released in the early summer of 2006. He appeared at special Atlantic Records showcases at Carnegie Hall and the Montreux Jazz Festival, as well as opening for the Rolling Stones and Paul Weller. Nutini's debut album, These Streets, was ultimately released in July 2006 alongside his second single, "Jenny Don't Be Hasty." The album fared quite well in the U.K., where it climbed to double-platinum status and sent four singles into the Top 40. Accordingly, an American release followed in January 2007.

For Nutini's second album, the songwriter took a more active role in the production, partnering with Ethan Johns but helming much of the material himself. The resulting record, Sunny Side Up, appeared in June 2009, featuring increased contributions from Nutini's backing band and a bright, sprightly disposition. Sunny Side Up was a number one hit in the U.K. -- one of the biggest-selling albums of the year -- and went on to claim Best Album at the Ivor Novello Awards.

Nutini entered the studio in 2011 to begin sessions for his third album, and an appearance on Johnny Boy Would Love This...A Tribute to John Martyn was followed in 2011 by performances at Glastonbury, Latitude, and the Montreux Jazz Festival, before Nutini reached his (arguably) largest ever audience as part of London's 2012 Olympics Games concert at Hyde Park.

Following his heavy tour scheduling and a breakup with his childhood sweetheart, Nutini took time away from music to rediscover the inspiration that was the driving force behind his first two records, and returned to his hometown Paisley. Eventually, the songs began flowing and Nutini recorded his third record, Caustic Love, which featured American vocalist Janelle Monáe. Released in April of 2014, Caustic Love topped the U.K. albums chart and reached number 31 on the Billboard 200.

Following another extensive touring schedule, Nutini quietly went on hiatus, making only a handful of live appearances, including two sold-out shows as part of Edinburgh's Hogmanay New Year's Eve Party in 2016. After an eight year gap, he returned in July 2022 with his fourth album, Last Night in the Bittersweet. Produced by Nutini, along with Gavin Fitzjohn and Dani Castelar, the abum found him bringing together his soulful, singer/songwriter pop with post-punk and Krautrock influences. ~ Matt Collar & Stewart Mason

However, it is Julianne, a track approaching the end of the album where Nutini's truest ...

    And when the song seems to conclude with a final goodbye, the acoustic guitar returns and Paolo offers a last wordless serenade. Love is messy and hard earned emotions are tough to walk away from concretely. Sitting at the midpoint of "Last Night in the Bittersweet" is the biggest carat cut stone of these sixteen tracks.
