The wait of almost five years for something new by the Italian-Scotsman has most definitely been worth it.
Nutini takes a step away from his guitar and dances into the soul-funk genre with tracks like album opener and lead single Scream (Funk My Life Up) and Let Me Down Easy which samples Betty LaVette’s 1960s classic Motown track. Another interesting sample is on Iron Sky, featuring snippets from Charlie Chaplin’s famous final speech from The Great Dictator. He does provide more typical Nutiniesque music with tracks like Numpty, and romantic offerings including Better Man and the stripped-back Someone Like You.
