Lewis Capaldi announces ‘Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent’

Album due May 19th

Lewis Capaldi announces the forthcoming release of his new album Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent, due May 19, 2023 via Capitol Records. Featuring his smash single “Forget Me,” the album will follow Capaldi’s 2019 full-length debut, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, a massively acclaimed effort that emerged as the biggest-selling UK album of both 2019 and 2020. The 26-year-old artist has announced his spring 2023 headline tour of North America, with all tickets on sale this Friday, October 21st.

Made with longtime collaborators including TMS, producer/songwriter Phil Plested (James Bay, Bastille) and hitmakers like super-producer Max Martin (Taylor Swift, The Weeknd), Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent pushes forward with the piercingly honest songwriting and soul-stirring vocal work Capaldi first showcased on his debut album.

“I don’t want to create a new sound for myself, or reinvent myself”  Capaldi says of the album. “The songs I want to write are emotional songs, about love or loss.”

An auspicious start to the next phase of his career, “Forget Me” amassed over two million streams within 24 hours of its premiere and is now approaching 100 million streams globally, in addition to making Capaldi only the third artist this year to land a single at the No. 1 spot on the UK charts in its first week.

Directed by Louis Bhose, the official video for “Forget Me” served up a shot-for-shot remake of Wham’s 1983 hit “Club Tropicana.” Capaldi has also unveiled an acoustic version of the track.

After selling out headline shows to hundreds of thousands across the continents over the past few years — and headlining his first-ever festivals last summer — Capaldi will embark on a headline tour of North America next spring. Available to Citi cardholders in the US and American Express cardholders in Canada, credit-card pre-sales for the tour start tomorrow (Wed, Oct 19th) at 10 am local time. Additionally, the Spotify pre-sale and promoter/venue/radio pre-sales start Thursday, October 20th at 10 am local time with the public on-sale set for Friday, October 21st at noon local time via Ticketmaster.
