De­spite the Ital­ian sound­ing name, Nu­tini is Scot­tish with his style of mu­sic in the smoul­der­ing rock/R&B lite mode. This is his third al­bum and it has al­ready brought him to his big­gest global au­di­ence. Scream (Funk My Life Up) is a bang­ing way to kick off the al­bum be­fore Let Me Down Easy spins back to ’60s style pop. Fash­ion fea­tures the al­ways-wel­come Janelle Monae rap­ping and has a sim­i­lar retro vibe (even namecheck­ing Lon­don’s swing­ing Carn­aby Street). We’re not sure if the Diana in his song is Princess Di, but it’s such a slinky, sexy num­ber we don’t re­ally care. If Amy Wine­house had been rein­car­nated as a man with moves like Jag­ger and brushed her hair out of its bee­hive you’d ar­rive some­where close to Paolo. An al­bum this good is a re­minder that male voices are al­lowed to make you swoon, too.
