The U.S. dates kick off July 20 at The Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, N.Y., with shows through an Aug. 3 gig at Weesner Amphitheatre in Apple Valley, Minn.

The singer/songwriter then makes two festival appearances overseas, playing Summer Sonic in Tokyo, Japan (Aug. 8) and in Osaka, Japan (Aug. 9), followed with a spot at V Festival in Shropshire, U.K. (Aug. 22) and Chelmsford, U.K. (Aug. 23).

By the end of August he’s back in the U.S., playing The Culture Room in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., Aug. 31 with Stateside dates through a Sept. 19 show at Showbox in Seattle.

Sunny Side Up, Nutini’s follow up to 2006’s These Streets, was released May 29.

Many in the American press have praised Nutini for his musical sensibilities beyond his years, comparing his at times raspy voice to singers such as Otis Redding.

“[Nutini] has made a leap of Olympic proportions … in both breadth of genres, and maturity of perspective – it sounds more like a fourth effort than a second,” wrote Jim Farber in the New York Daily News.

The British press was just as pleased.

“[Nutini’s] joyous second album organically blends soul, country, folk and the brash, horny energy or ragtime swing,” The Telegraph raved in its five-out-of five starred review. “The result is an eccentric blast, like some obscure lost classic from the Seventies.”

Additional festival gigs booked this summer include Southside Festival in Neuhausen ob Eck, Germany (June 19), Hurricane Festival in Scheessel, Germany (June 20), Glastonbury in Pilton, U.K. (June 27) and iTunes Live: London Sessions (July 10).

There’s also T in The Park in Kinross, U.K. (July 11), Oxegen in Naas, Ireland (July 12), Moon & Stars Locarno in Switzerland (July 13), Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest in Ottawa, Ontario (July 17), Mile High Music Festival in Commerce City, Colo. (July 18).

Nutini will also be touring the U.K., France, Germany and Switzerland.
