Lewis Capaldi will release his new album ‘Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent’ on May 19th.

The Scottish songwriter found incredible success with his debut album ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’. Emotional songcraft coupled to a hilarious social media persona, his star rose and rose and rose, until shifting 10 million copies worldwide.

Tasked with creating a follow up, he decided to keep it simple. His second album lands next year, essentially recorded using only a small interface, laptop, speakers, and a Shure SM7B vocal mic.

Lewis comments: “I felt like I was sounding better because I was just chilled out in my own gaff. Also, a lot of this record was made with most of the same people who I worked with on the first one: TMS, Phil Plested, Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway. At least one of them’s on almost every song.”

No. 1 smash ‘Forget Me’ is out now, with Lewis placing a brand new video online alongside the album announce. The track itself is indicative of what fans can expect – tender songwriting, from the heart.

“I don’t want to create a new sound for myself, or reinvent myself,” he adds in a press note. “The songs I want to write are emotional songs, about love or loss.”

Tune in now.
