How do you feel when it has been 3 years since you have seen Paolo Nutini live and you are waiting outside the O2 Academy in the cold rain for the doors to open?
Caustic Love clocks up stellar sales to debut at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart midweeks.
Paolo Nutini looks set to end Kaiser Chiefs’ two-week stand at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart this weekend with his third full-length, Caustic Love. And, not only that, the 27-year-old Scottish singer/songwriter is also on track to bag himself the fastest selling artist album of 2014 so far.
According to the Official Charts Company’s latest sales data, the follow-up to Paolo‘s 2009 album, Sunny Side Up, has sold more than 59,000 already this week. Caustic Love is currently just 10,000 copies behind the entire first week tally of current record holder, G I R L by Pharrell Williams, which topped the Chart back in March.

Who are you?’, and you just go, ‘I need to take it easy and slow down. I need to sweat this out’
“Not only that, but I felt a few little growing pains that I never fancied showcasing too much. So I just thought, ‘I’ll go and deal with these’. Then you just think sometimes you could wallow for a day or two, and then another week or two, and so you could wallow for a year, but yeah I took some time. I retraced my footprints, some of the territories and places that I’d been. People are like, ‘Oh wow, what’s Copenhagen like?’ and I’m like, ‘I don’t know. I’ve seen the hotel, the band, the bar and the venue’.
