Popworld.com caught up with Paolo Nutini in a Q&A and asked the singer how performing in front of thousands of people compares to his former job, working in a fish and chip shop. “It’s amazing,” he said. “I played a gig in Germany the other week and the crowd were really getting into the songs. It just gave me the best feeling. It’s just mad the way people can relate to something I’ve written. I used to work in my dad’s fish and chip shop, or more like skive as my mum would put it, so it’s definitely a massive change.”
Paolo Nutini visited Cool FM in Belfast, Northern Ireland the other day to talk with Glen Pavis. He talked about having an Italian name while being from Scotland, how he’s always loved music and got into it thanks to his grandfather, the new single ‘Last Request’ and album ‘These Streets’, why he signed with Atlantic Records, his prophetic choice to win the World Cup, and more. Nutini also performed ‘These Streets’. The 10-minute interview/performance at coolfm.co.uk has since been removed.
