“The biggest name in music this year”. This was how Lewis Capaldi was introduced on the 2019 Christmas edition of Top of the Pops (BBC). The Scottish singer-songwriter had a global hit that year with ‘Someone You Loved’. This tale of lost love stayed in the UK charts for almost two years. Since then, Capaldi has racked up a string of impressive performances. His debut album, ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent’, spent 77 weeks in the UK Top 10. It even surpassed Ed Sheeran’s ‘÷’ (2017). One more fact: his first British stadium tour – with a combined audience of 250,000 – sold out in one second. In January 2021, Capaldi slipped off the radar to work on a follow-up. “I think my new music is going to be a massive flop,” he said. “This is the end of my ‘15 minutes of fame’.” As well as buckets of talent, he’s also got a sense of humour.
