Lewis Capaldi Introduces His Debut Album

"I hope people don’t think it’s shit."

Lewis Capaldi is set to release his debut album 'Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent' on May 17th.

The Scottish songwriter seems unstoppable right now, with his new single 'Someone You Loved' racing into the Top 5.

Prevented from claiming the top spot by not one but two Ariana Grande singles, Lewis is now ready to showcase his debut LP.

Work on 'Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent' is over, with the songwriter commenting: "I hope people don’t think it’s shit."

As ever, Lewis Capaldi is the best voice for his own music – here's the (fantastic) press quote…

“I’m absolutely buzzing to finally be able to announce my debut album. I never thought I’d get to the point where I’d be able to release a proper album and I ABSOLUTELY never thought that when I did, I would give it a name as stupid I have, but here we are."

"Everyone always tells you about how amazing recording their first album was and how they’ll always look back on the ‘process’ with fond memories. I will look back on it as an extremely stressful time that somehow also managed to be extremely boring. The actual process of building the songs up I loved, but recording the same guitar parts over and over again to get them right and going back on mixes for weeks, I did not."

"I hope people don’t think it’s shit. I mean don’t get me wrong there will be one or two stinkers on there, but I’m only human and we all make mistakes, but as a whole I think it’s pretty fucking good."

"I’m excited for it to be released and have people finally be able to hear a full body of work from me for the first time. Should it bomb completely or receive an absolute critical lambasting, don’t worry, it’s just my life’s work up until this point…"
