Lewis Capaldi Releases New Song “How I'm Feeling Now” & Trailer for Documentary “Lewis Capaldi: How I'm Feeling Now”
Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi released a new song “How I'm Feeling Now”, and a new trailer for his documentary “Lewis Capaldi: How I'm Feeling Now” on March 17, 2023.
The song is the third single off of his upcoming sophomore album “Broken by Desire to Be Heavenly Sent”, which is set to be released on May 19, 2023.
The track was written by Lewis Capaldi, TMS, and Tobias Jesso Jr. Produced by TMS and Lewis Capaldi.
The song is the last song of the album and is written about his mental health. The new film is named after the song.
Lewis Capaldi said of the song, “The film is called 'How I'm Feeling Now' and it's named after a song I wrote, which will be released at midnight on the 17th of March. It's the last song I wrote for my upcoming album and is a tune that's all about something I've never really written about in my music before which is my mental health. Obviously I completely recognise how lucky I am to have the life I do and I know there are people in much worse positions than I am out there but as much as the last 5 years have been the best of my life, I would be lying if I said it all hasn't taken its toll mentally and honestly, there have been some extremely low points and that's what this song is about. I know the last few years have been and continue to be difficult for everyone so hopefully you relate to the tune in some way and it might be nice to hear there's someone else in a similar boat as you, I know it would for me.”
The film follows Lewis Capaldi through the motions of creating his sophomore album. Directed by Joe Pearlman. It is set for release on May 19, 2023.
He said of the film, “When the opportunity to make a documentary came up for me I was extremely hesitant. I think because I seem quite open about a lot of things whether it be in interviews, on stage or social media people assume they know a lot about me and my life but in actual fact I tend to keep a lot of things to myself as a matter of preference. Now that this film, two and a half years in the making, is finally coming out I'd be lying if I said I wasn't wildly nervous. I feel like there's a lot of things in it I haven't spoken about before and in truth the whole film became way more intimate than I'd ever imagined so it feels like a particularly vulnerable position to be in. The trailer for the film comes out tomorrow, Thursday the 16th of March at 3pm UK time and as nervous as I am, I'm really looking forward to sharing it with the world.”
He added, “Lastly, I just want to say that I'm extremely proud of what this documentary has become and I have to thank Joe Pearlman, Alice Rhodes, Sam Bridger, Amy Rattray, and everyone at Pulse films, Independent Talent, Quickfire Films, BMG & Netflix for making it happen. Seriously been one of the most amazing and extremely peculiar experiences of my life however I doubt I'll be rushing to make another one anytime soon because having a camera crew with you everywhere you go makes you look like a dick and is quite simply fucking stupid. Anyway I'll stop talking shite, the film comes out April 5th worldwide on Netflix, hope you enjoy it.”
