Nutini's View Of Top Duet

THE VIEW claim that fellow Scot Paolo Nutini was scared of them when they recorded a duet together.
The Dundee tearaways invited the singer to lay down a track for their next album when the two acts were working in the same recording studios.

But frontman Kyle Falconer says he bossed poor Paolo around so much during the session, the Paisley boy was a nervous wreck.

Kyle told this week's NME: "We kidnapped him and made him sing. I've never seen someone look so scared. I was shouting at him, telling him what to do. Call me Adolf Falconer."

Although Kyle may be exaggerating slightly, a spokesman for Paolo admitted he was surprised by the View's request to record with him.

He said: "When Paolo was recording at Rockfield studios in Monmouth Valley, The View were in a studio not far away and Kyle turned up one day and invited Paolo to record with him. Paolo's band went with him and all of them, including new Australian artist Liam Gerner, provided moral support."

He added: "The View are all sweethearts."

The track is set to appear on The View's new album with Oasis producer Owen Morris and also features Babyshambles' Drew McConnell on double bass. It is likely to appear towards the end of the year.
