Lewis Capaldi will release new single, “Forget Me” on September 9.
After a three-year break, the 25-year-old singer/songwriter is returning with a new single and he premiered it live on TikTok during a concert in London last week.
He told fans: “It’s been a while since I released new music, a very long time, three years in fact, but thankfully on 9 September that changes.
“Next week I release my first single from this next album. It’s called ‘Forget Me’, so that’s good news. As well as that, I am going to play that song for everybody here tonight. I am showing 20,000 people my song for the first time. I’m very nervous. No one has heard any of this music apart from you all here tonight.”
Lewis previously told fans at Latitude that he was “lazy” and had no new music to play for them.
He said: “I rescheduled a lot of shows last year because I was like, ‘Guys, I need to finish my new album’. And I was supposed to do it, but I am horribly lazy. So we’re just going to play you all of the old stuff, because it’s all we’ve got.”
Additionally, Lewis has admitted that he is “terrified” about the follow-up to his debut album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent. He said: “I’d be lying if I said I haven’t been terrified about making my next album since the moment I finished the last one.”
Recently, Capaldi also took fans behind the scenes of the official music video for his hit single “Someone You Loved” in the latest installment of Vevo Footnotes. The BTS video celebrates the third anniversary of the song.
The episode sees the synergistic collaboration of the Scottish singer-songwriter and video director Ozzie Pullin’s own visual take on the heartfelt themes of “Someone You Loved,” discussing both the creative concepts of how the video was captured and the use of characters to depict the various relationships discussed in the song.
