Scottish singer Paolo Nutini has been forced to scrap his upcoming US tour with Dave Matthews due to recording commitments.
The 'New Shoes' singer was set to accompany Grammy-winner Matthews on several stateside gigs next month, but had to pull out because of his hectic schedule recording his second LP.
The star explains in his online blog: "It is with massive regret we've had to pull out of the Dave Matthews tour next month.
"Making the record is the number one priority, so we don't have the time for a month on the road."
Nutini shot to fame in 2006 with the release of his debut album 'These Streets' reaching number three in the British album chart.
