Coming Up Easy

Album: Sunny Side Up (2009)
Charted: 62


  • This was the second single released from Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini's sophomore studio album Sunny Side Up.
  • This soulful ballad was written by Paolo Nutini and produced by the singer together with Ethan Johns (Kings Of Leon, Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne).
  • The song concerns Nutini's struggles with marijuana but it can be listened to from other perspectives. The singer explained on his website: "Its about my own conflict I had about marijuana but you can hear it as a song about relationships, compromising, having to deal with someone else's emotions. It's about bad habits and breaking up, but I wanted to keep it positive."
