Paolo Nutini releases short film for ‘Iron Sky’

By on August 12, 2014


Paolo Nutini has released a captivating short film for his single “Iron Sky,” off his upcoming US release Caustic Love, out September 16. “Iron Sky” has been called a “rock soul epic” by the Telegraph and a “rousing soul-symphony” by The Guardian. The track features an extract from Charlie Chaplin’s infamous speech from the 1940 anti-war satire “The Great Dictator.” The powerful song deserved a equally powerful video to go along with it.

The film is an eight-minute cinematic masterpiece from Director Daniel Wolfe, who has recently debuted his first ever feature film ‘Catch Me Daddy’ at Cannes Film Festival, and is best known for videos for Plan B and notably The Shoes video where actor Jake Gyllenhaall plays a serial killer.  Of the video, Daniel Wolfe says ‘I was sent the track with no explanation from Paolo. As a child I stared at the planet Jupiter and had a vivid hallucinatory experience. A feeling of abject terror. In bondage to an omnipotent machine. When I heard the Chaplin quote (from the song) I remembered this clearly. So the video became a dystopian vision of the future as imagined by a child in the 80’s.’

Already a phenomenon worldwide, “CAUSTIC LOVE” arrives in the U.S. on September 16th.  “CAUSTIC LOVE” debuted at #1 on the UK Album Chart and has remained in the Top 10 for over 15 weeks. In addition, the platinum selling album has ruled the iTunes Store’s “Top Albums” chart in a stunning range of countries, with #1 sales in 9 countries including the UK, Ireland, Italy, as well as top 3 success in New Zealand, Germany, and 19 other countries. Nutini is scheduled to appear on a number of high profile TV appearances, including ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! (September 17th) and NBC’s TODAY show (September 17th). The performances follow recent visits to NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers and VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live and CBS This Morning Saturday.
