The Scottish singer-songwriter was the first artist to sell out an arena tour before releasing a debut album and after that rocket fuelled start his career has continued on a constant upward trajectory. Now Lewis Capaldi is about to star in a film due to debut at Cannes this month.
From the time of that sell out tour he has had cameras filming his journey over the last five years in order to produce a documentary that will give fans an inside look at how he balances stardom with his day to day life in Scotland.
A press release for the as yet untitled film says, ” It is an intimate portrait of his unique character, hopes and fears in his own words. Digging beneath the popular clichés surrounding the most unlikely of popstars reveals a deeply thoughtful and self-reflective young man at a unique crossroads in his life as he carries the weight of trying to eclipse the success of his record-breaking debut album.”
Obviously Lewis is a man who thrives under pressure as he is quoted as saying,
“If the immense pressure of writing and recording a second album that has to live up to the expectations of so many people I’ve never met while also attempting to eclipse the commercial success of my previous album wasn’t enough, I decided to film the process in its entirety for your viewing pleasure. I’m very excited to potentially capture the making of the best album of all time, or more likely, to permanently document the scorching of my dreams as years of my life’s work is received like a pile of flaming s****. Either way it’s going to be lots of fun and will be lovely to have people along for the ride.”
