Without doubt 2014 is the year of Paolo Nutini. With the announcement of his first UK arena tour and his third album ‘Caustic Love’ critically lauded, already platinum and a permanent fixture in the Top Ten (for 15 straight weeks), Paolo Nutini releases new single ‘Iron Sky’ on Atlantic Records September 1st.

Produced by Paolo and Dani Castelar ‘Iron Sky’ is a raw, emotional, epic that has stunned critics and fans alike. Adele even went as far as to tweet ‘Hands down one of the best things I have ever seen in my life’, after seeing the live version of the track performed at the legendary Abbey Road and Zane Lowe wrote “This song will be around for decades. If you’re a songwriter - this is the song you’ll have wished you’d written”.

The Evening Standard called it ‘the standout track (from the album)’, the Guardian ‘tremendous’ and the Independent a ‘brooding urban plaint’, ‘Iron Sky’ is the centre piece to the live show which has continued to win over fans from Glastonbury to T in the Park.
