The track follows on from ‘Lose It’ and ‘Through The Echoes’ which were both released last month to announce Nutini’s fourth album, the follow-up to 2014’s ‘Caustic Love’.
‘Shine A Light’ is an upbeat slice of arena-ready pop which is perfectly timed, since Nutini will headline TRNSMT and Victorious Festival this summer, and later this month he’ll perform two large outdoor shows in Bristol and Belfast. He’s also set to support Liam Gallagher this weekend at one of his two Knebworth shows.
Listen to ‘Shine A Light’ below:
Nutini’s ‘Last Night In The Bittersweet’ is released on July 1 via Atlantic Records. Written by Nutini (with some select co-write contributions from members of his band), the record was produced by the artist alongside Dani Castelar and Gavin Fitzjohn.

Speaking about Nutini’s influence on him, Lewis Capaldi told NME that he “was the first solo artist that I was ever really into. I was always into guitar bands, like Queens Of The Stone Age and Kings of Leon.”
“But Paolo was the first person where I was like ‘fuck, this is cool’. I remember listening to ‘Iron Sky’ and thinking ‘fuck me this is incredible.’ Before that, I was writing shite Arctic Monkeys songs and it just wasn’t happening because I wasn’t those bands. But with Paolo, I just kind of got it. It’s a good thing, you can kinda tell that I grew up listening to it.”
