When is Lewis Capaldi’s new album out?

Capaldi confirmed in October that he is currently working on a new album that is set to be released on 19 May, 2023.

Reported by NME when discussing his upcoming album, Capaldi said: “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.” He added: “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 singer will also be touring in 2023, with dates in Manchester, Liverpool, Glasgow, Belfast, Dublin, Cardiff and Exeter. Tickets sold out fast and there is limited ticket availability left, you can find out more on Ticketmaster.
