Two weeks he appeared at the Festival Sanremo with three songs including one off his new album “Caustic Love” which should be released to the public on April 15th.
Now comes another song, “Iron Sky” from that album, this time with a video recorded in the Abbey Road studios in London.
Included in the video are the words of Charlie Chaplin in his final speech in the 1940’s film, The Great Dictator.
Chaplin’s film advanced a stirring, controversial condemnation of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini’s fascism, antisemitism, and the Nazis, whom he mocks in the film as “machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts”.
To those who can hear me, I say – do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed – the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. …..
Soldiers! don’t give yourselves to brutes – men who despise you – enslave you – who regiment your lives – tell you what to do – what to think and what to feel! Who drill you – diet you – treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men – machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate – the unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!
Dopo essere stato ospite al Festival di Sanremo e in attesa dell’uscita del nuovo album “Caustic Love”, il 15 aprile, Nutini regala ai suoi fan la versione live di “Iron Sky”.
Un’ anteprima di uno dei brani contenuti nel disco.

Il monologo che accompagna il live è tratto dal film del 1940 “Il grande dittatore” di Charlie Chaplin
