Lewis Capaldi Details Debut LP 'Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent', Confirms Autumn Tour Dates

Monday, 18 February 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Lewis Capaldi will embark on his biggest headline tour to date following the release of his debut album this spring.

The Scottish singer-songwriter will release 'Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent' on May 17 via Virgin EMI, followed by his biggest ever UK and Ireland tour in the autumn, which includes a huge show at London's O2 Academy Brixton and two homecoming dates at the O2 Academy Glasgow. Other stops include Dublin, Belfast, Manchester, Birmingham, Southampton, Norwich, Edinburgh. In an open letter to fans and media, Lewis explained:

"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."

His 2019 tour plans also include sets at several summer festivals, including the Great Escape in Brighton this spring, as well as Tramlines, Truck and Camp Bestival in July. He also has tour dates lined up in North America and continental Europe. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on February 22.

The announcement follows hot on the heels of his latest single, Someone You Loved. Head below to view the track's accompanying video alongside the album's cover art.
