Paolo Nutini On Franz Ferdinand Team Up

Scots singer wants collaboration

Paisley singer Paolo Nutini has talked about his wish to work with some of Scotland’s top talent.

Paolo Nutini first came to fame after leaping onstage at an instore in his native Glasgow. The star never turned up, with the youthful Nutini entertaining the crowd with an eclectic series of covers.

Snapped up by a label the singer released his debut album to instant acclaim. Hits such as ‘New Shoes’ soared up the charts making Paolo Nutini a household name and bona fide festival headliner.

With his second album being released earlier this year it seems that Paolo Nutini isn’t content to sit on his laurels.

Speaking to British red top The Daily Star Paolo Nutini outlined his wish to work with some of his fellow Scots.

“I’d like to get together with people like James (Allen) from Glasvegas,” he told the newspaper. “I spoke to Franz Ferdinand in Canada and we’ve a studio (together) in Glasgow”.

The singer previously revealed that he had agreed to work with The View’s singer Kyle Falconer. The pair are close friends, having played together onstage many times.

“In the early hours one morning we agreed to do a mini-album together,” he said. “Kyle said he would produce one part of it and I would produce the other.”

“We have got all these ideas and I know that he is up for it.”

Paulo Nutini appeared on The View’s new album dueting with Kyle Falconer on ‘Covers’.
