Lewis Capaldi has released his eagerly-awaited debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent on Virgin EMI – featuring UK Number 1 platinum-selling single ‘Someone You Loved’ – the biggest UK single of the year so far.
Recorded over an 18 month period across London, New York & L.A., Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent is an ironically titled, but charismatically defining album that’s lyrically candid and an accurate snapshot into the ups and downs of growing up. Consisting of recordings that capture the charm & feeling of how they were originally written, ‘Grace’, Bruises’ & ‘Someone You Loved’, Lewis’ stunningly identifiable voice, coupled with its turbulent themes of love, loss and heartache, make it a debut record that is unequivocally relatable.
The young 22 year old who only 18 months ago had been plugging-in night-after-night into the local pub gig circuit of Glasgow, Scotland will first head out on the road in November to headline some of the country’s most notable venues, then embark on a truly remarkable sold out UK arena tour in 2020.
Lewis has taken pairing sad songs with an incredible wit, and a rampant social media following to match, and made it his very own. The results are hilariously beautiful.
