Lewis Capaldi Returns With New Song “Forget Me”
Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi returned with a new song “Forget Me” on September 9, 2022.
It is his first music in three years since the 2019 debut album “Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent”.
He first performed the song at O2 Arena in London on September 2, 2022.
The song is the first single off of his upcoming sophomore album.
It was written by Lewis Capaldi, TMS, Michael Pollack, and Philip Plested. Produced by TMS, Lewis Capaldi and Chris Bishop.
The accompanyin music video was directed by Louis Bhose.
Lewis Capaldi said of the song, “I'm back. My new single is called 'Forget Me', and let's just be honest here, lyrically it covers a lot of the same ground as before. I meet lady, lady leaves me, I whine about it in a pop song. Textbook. After I was able to finally fucking move out of my parents house in 2020 after the success of 'Someone You Loved' and 'Before You Go', I thought it'd be wise to ring up my pals TMS again and see if they fancied writing some more tunes after I realised I'm contractually obligated to make more music for a large corporation. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.”
- He continued, “It's a wee bit more upbeat than my previous numbers, mostly because after touring the world, I noticed that my lesser known slower tracks were making some of the crowds look like they were about to fall asleep out of sheer boredom. However, this new one is sad AND fast, much like my love making. Not to worry, I've still got plenty of depressing ballads up my sleeve. More on that another time…”
He adde, “All joking aside, I'm really excited to be back and get this song out there. I won't lie though, I'm absolutely shitting it too, so it will be interesting to see how it all pans out this time. It could be the beginning of a beautiful chapter in my life, OR the very public downward spiral that, let's face it, I'm probably due. I hope you like the song. If not, that's fine too, but come on to fuck, I've heard some of the shite that's been big over the last few years and it's got to be a wee bit better than some of that.
I'll leave you with a quote from my mother: 'It's not the best song I've ever heard, but I do like it'.”
He shared on social media about billboard promotions, “It's been a while, but it's good to be back… I swear to god if I've stripped down to my pants and put it on billboards all over the world to promote this new single just for it to be a massive flop I'll be so embarrassed. Took my clothes off and traumatized the [general] public all in the name of shameless self-promotion. Sex sells.”
