Here is an exclusive first look at Paolo Nutini's new video for 'Iron Sky' the highly anticipated second single from his third album Caustic Love. WARNING: video contains explicit content

Caustic Love, released in April, marked Paolo's return to music after a brief hiatus following his split with his childhood sweetheart.

A live version of 'Iron Sky' recorded at Abbey Road earlier this year drew praise from fellow singer-songwriter Adele, who wrote on her Twitter page, 'F**k!!! This is one of the best things I've ever seen in my life hands down.'

Now, the the Scottish star has released the official video boasting his incredible vocals and featuring a segment from Charlie Chaplin's speech from 1940 film The Great Dictator running over footage of the terrifying effects of drug addiction.

Caustic Love spent three weeks at the top of the charts in April, and has been praised for forging a new sound for Nutini, graduating from his debut effort These Streets and his last album, Sunny Side Up, released in 2009 and which was certified five-time platinum.

Paolo recently announced his 'biggest ever tour' with dates in Belfast on Sunday November 2, 2014 and Dublin on Monday November 3, 2014.  The singer, and his ten piece band, will also perform at Electirc Picnic in Strabally, Co Louis, at the end of the month.
