Rita Ora has shared her Lewis Capaldi-penned new single ‘How To Be Lonely’, which you can check out below.
The track is Ora’s first release in 2020 and follows 2019 singles ‘Only Want You’, ‘Carry On’, and ‘Ritual’.
Capaldi revealed that wrote the new song on his Instagram story earlier this week, 9 March. “Sometimes you write songs and you sing them and you go, ‘I’m f_king sh_te at this’,” Capaldi explained. “I said, ‘I don’t know, I’m not very good at singing this’. And they go, ‘How about you get someone who can sing it?’”
“And now a baby’s been born,” Rita Ora added.
Capaldi, who is currently on an arena tour of the UK, recently said that his label hired him an etiquette expert to teach the singer how to walk and talk more elegantly, as part of a “jokey video series” for his 2018 single ‘Grace’.
The lessons, which took place in October 2018, were taught by “celebrity party organiser” Liz Brewer, according to the Daily Record. The three sessions covered introductions at social functions, dining etiquette, and how to walk appropriately.
Meanwhile, the Scottish star launched a new mental health scheme last week. ‘Livelive’ is designed to help fans attending his shows with panic attacks and social anxiety.
The initiative was set up after the Scottish star received messages from fans thanking him for speaking candidly about his own experience of panic attacks in interviews.
The ‘Livelive’ scheme provides an email support service fans can use to find out about on-site facilities before a show, while at the gigs there will be a help desk with information on resources to help in the longer-term, a quiet space for those experiencing anxiety and panic attacks to regather themselves, and medical staff and trained mental health professionals available to give extra care.
