A source close to the star explained to Sun Why is there such a long gap between albums – and explain that fans will get a full range of different musical sounds through the recording as the first two tunes demonstrate.
The source said: “Paolo has spent a lot of time working on this new music so he has put a lot of effort into making sure everything is absolutely perfect.
“He cares a lot about the songs and wants to give his fans, who have been waiting years for new music, the best experience possible.
“Paolo insists that only a handful of people in his internal circle listen to the songs before they are released. And almost no one has listened to this album.”
News of the new album has been a huge hit with fans – many have posted on Paolo’s Instagram about the new disc to share their excitement.
One emotional follower responded, writing: “Can’t wait for this!!”
Another said: “our summer listening has been SORTED”
While another fan typed: “this is MAJOR” and another simply wrote: “he’s back!”
With new music to release, Paolo will be hitting the road – with a series of summer festivals coming up.
He’s also released tickets for a string of intimate UK gigs set to take place next week – but tickets for the events sold out within seconds of going on sale.
Fans were furious, however, after tickets to the sold-out gigs appeared on offer pages – selling for 15 times their original value.
Paolo’s headline gigs at London’s 100 Club were posted with prices ranging from £369 to £635 and £852 – when the original ticket price was £35 plus a booking fee.
Fans were affected by the inflated resale prices, with one person complaining online: “Can you explain why maybe I had to wait in line and after 30 seconds everything was sold out. Also, why are tickets now available on vigeono for £600? Like 9.01 you can buy tickets from resellers.”
While Paolo himself reacted to the news, writing in a tweet: “Please DON’T buy overpriced tickets from unauthorized resale sites like Viagogo as those tickets will not be valid.”
