Nutini entered the studio in 2011 to begin sessions for his third album and an appearance on Johnny Boy Would Love This…A Tribute to John Martyn was followed in 2011 by performances at Glastonbury, Latitude, and the Montreux Jazz Festival, before Nutini reached his (arguably) largest ever audience as part of London’s 2012 Olympics Games concert at Hyde Park. Following his heavy tour scheduling and a breakup with his childhood sweetheart, Nutini took time away from music to rediscover the inspiration that was the driving force behind his first two records, and returned to his hometown Paisley. Eventually, the songs began flowing and Nutini recorded his third record, Caustic Love, which featured American vocalist Janelle Monáe; it was due for release in 2014.

Paolo Nutini – Scream Lyrics:
How was I to know you’d just come along?
And funk my life up
Lips like debbie’s, sing sex like strawberry songs
Just funk my life up
Never heard her coming, thought it was just another woman
With a shotgun in her hand
Funk my life up

She’s the bass, she’s the beat, she’s the rhythm, she’s the band
Just funk my life up
And that girl, so fine
Makes you wanna scream hallelujah

Sly hands, spinning wax lights, oh god
Beats are dripping on me like spider milk
And I never heard the warning when I woke up in the morning
With my sunshine on a drip

She’s my rock, she’s my but, she’s the dealer trip
And that girl, so fine
Makes you wanna scream hallelujah

How can I refuse? I’m not fit to chose
Just funk my life up
Said the only way I win is the way I lose
Just funk my life up
And I never got the script, I unzipped
Got a little bit wet up there in my brain
She’s your church, she’s your sin, she’s a comic, she’s a
And that girl, so fine
Makes you wanna scream

She gets me sinning, she’s like a trick on me
Hell, I don’t even know her name but yet she sticks to me
And in the climax she would scream with me
Yeah, she sticks to me
She gets me funny, she doesn’t want none of my money
So I pour it over her like gasoline
Light a match and then I’m back in my teens
Me and super girl smoking my green
Me and super girl smoking my green

Oh, lord, reload, ice bags, scream
Sweet thing, nose ring, jet pack, sing
? makes you wanna scream hallelujah
Yeah, the girl, so fine you wanna scream.
