    This song* is the opening track, and one of the singles from the album Caustic Love (2014).

    An amazing album, and one that I constantly share with people as it seems to come from a deeply emotional place.

    I friggin' love Paulo Nutini. His first album (These Streets) is truly something special and it's hard to believe he was only 18 when he recorded it. It's also somewhat hard to believe a guy with such a thick Scottish accent sings soul music like he does. :P

    And for anyone not aware, how he was discovered is interesting too: When he was 16, a family member got him access to a local radio station concert being held in his home town of Paisley, Scotland, and when the performer was delayed they held an impromptu quiz to keep everyone entertained while they waited. Paolo won and as his reward was given the chance to perform on stage while they continued waiting. He absolutely blew everyone away, including a prominent UK manager that was in the audience, and the rest is history.

      He's a super interesting figure - I didn't know about that contest, only that he was signed only immediately after turning 18 or so. I love These Streets, another of my favourite albums I think,...

      He's a super interesting figure - I didn't know about that contest, only that he was signed only immediately after turning 18 or so. I love These Streets, another of my favourite albums I think, and very different from Caustic Love.

      This is probably one of my go-to "show-off" albums.
