Lewis Capaldi shared on social media details of his long-awaited sophomore album titled ‘Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent,’ the follow-up to his 2019 debut, ‘Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent.’ Capaldi also announced a headlining world tour in support of the album, with his North American leg launching next spring. General ticket sales will begin Friday, October 21st at noon local time via Ticketmaster.
‘Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent’ is set release on May 19, 2023; Capaldi says of the project: “I felt like I was sounding better because I was just chilled out in my own gaff. Also, a lot of this record was made with most of the same people who I worked with on the first one: TMS, Phil Plested, Nick Atkinson, and Edd Holloway. At least one of them is on almost every song. I don’t want to create a new sound for myself, or reinvent myself. The songs I want to write are emotional songs, about love or loss.”
The official video for Capaldi’s latest hit song, “Forget Me” is directed by Louis Bhose and is a shot-for-shot remake of Wham’s 1983 hit “Club Tropicana.” Capaldi has also unveiled an acoustic version of the track, which you can listen to here.
