Paolo Nutini Goes Soph

(Atlantic Records) Paolo Nutini has announced early details of his eagerly awaited second album. "Sunny Side Up" which follows the Scottish-born singer/songwriter's acclaimed 2007 debut, "These Streets" arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on June 2nd.

"Sunny Side Up" will be preceded by the first single, "Candy," which is due to impact at Triple A radio outlets nationwide in mid-April. Nutini and his band, The Vipers, will herald the album's arrival with a live performance at the upcoming Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California, set for Saturday, April 18th. In addition, Paolo has slated a number of other April dates, including a free show at San Diego's Del Mar Plaza on April 19th.

Joining Paolo Nutini on the upcoming schedule will be fellow Atlantic Recording artist Serena Ryder.. A full-scale North American tour will be announced shortly.

Produced by Ethan Johns (Kings of Leon, Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne), "Sunny Side Up" sees Nutini continuing to mine his arresting brand of soulful modern pop. Songs such as "Ten Out Of Ten" and "Coming Up Easy" display the gifted tunesmith's ever-growing knack for irrepressible melodies melded with insightful and intimate lyricism, all held together by Paolo's gritty and unpredictable vocal stylings.
