Paolo Fan Kelly Jones

Kelly Jones spent 2009 listening to his Paolo Nutini album.

The Stereophonics frontman has revealed the 22-year-old Scottish star's second LP 'Sunny Side Up' was his favourite record of the past 12 months and he regularly played it at his home.

He said: "In a world of auto-tuned singles 'Pencil Full of Lead' is summer. Paolo is a great singer, with Sam Cooke and Otis Reading influences. A great album to have on around the house."

While he believes the 'New Shoes' hitmaker created the best album of the year, Kelly struggled to convince his bandmates their latest LP 'Keep Calm and Carry On' was any good after deciding to write the tracks alone with the help of a producer.

He explained: "In many ways it was an uncomfortable process. People had to sit back and listen rather than say, 'Let's get on with it.' "
