PAOLO Nutini fans have officially named today after the Paisley crooner who has just released his first album in eight years. 

Last Night in the Bittersweet is now available for fans to listen to after the 35-year-old previously teased by dropping Lose It and Through the Echos on streaming platforms. 

The new album comes ahead of his homecoming TRNSMT headlining show next Friday, and fans couldn't wait to give their verdict on Twitter.

One said: "Happy Paolo Nutini Day everyone. Can’t believe the waiting is over and the new album is here now.

"It’s been a long old wait but it just proves that 'all good things come to those who wait!'"

Another added: "Paolo Nutini, happy resurrection day of Paolo. At first Lose It reminded me of the movie split. Enjoying listening to the album, think I've already found my faves."

A third fan beamed: "Last Night In The Bittersweet. Headphones in. Turn it up, one 12 minutes. Every second worth the wait. Perfection. Enough said."

Meanwhile, the album's producer Gavin Fitzjohn took to Twitter to express his delight over the release.

Sharing a selfie with the popstar, he said: "Last Night in the Bittersweet the new album by Paolo Nutini is out now.

"It has been a long journey, countless hours in the studio - quite literally blood, sweat and tears with my co-producers and brothers Paolo Nutini and Dani Castelar. I love you."
