Lewis Capaldi ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’
NOV/DEC UK HEADLINE TOUR
*Sold Out In Under A Minute*
Incl. London, O2 Academy Brixton – November 29th
Further UK dates supporting Ed Sheeran & The Killers
2019 continues to be the year of Lewis Capaldi. Breaking records and capturing the nation, his eagerly awaited debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent is out May 17th on Virgin EMI. Lewis will also embark on his biggest ever UK headline tour which sold out in under a minute, including a night at London’s O2 Academy Brixton, as well as festival dates and support shows across the summer with Ed Sheeran and The Killers.
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, including hit UK singles ‘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.
Since debut track ‘Bruises’ exploded online in 2017, Capaldi has been able to boast incredibly rare markers in his still fledgling career. The young Scot, whose incredible humour sets him apart from fellow heartbreak songwriters, has already bagged a UK Number 1 platinum-selling single with ‘Someone You Loved’, which has sat at #1 for six weeks, making it the biggest UK single of the year and one of the longest running #1 singles of the past 25 years. An extraordinary feat for an artist who continues to smash through boundaries at an alarming rate.
Lewis has also achieved successive Radio 1 A-List tracks, sold over 150,000 headline show tickets, enlisted the music video acting services of ex-Dr Who star Peter Capaldi, amassed over 600 million plays across streaming services & has sold out no less than three back-to-back headline tours, with demand outstripping supply at every turn. This all underlined with critical praise, being shortlisted for the 2019 Brits Critics’ Choice award, TV performances on The Jonathan Ross Show & Top Of The Pops, and making both the BBC’s Sound Of 2018 longlist and BBC Radio 1’s Brit List.
His personal achievements haven’t gone unnoticed by his musician peers either, with Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, The Killers, Rag’n’ Bone Man, Bastille & Niall Horan all offering Capaldi support shows to audiences on a gigantic scale. The young 22 year old who only 18 months previous had been plugging-in night-after-night into the local pub gig circuit of Glasgow, will now head out on the road in November to headline some of the countries most notable venues, including London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
2018 was a remarkable year for Lewis Capaldi, and as 2019 rolls on, things continue to get bigger and better. 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.
