LEWIS Capaldi soared above his chart competition after he teased new single, ‘Wish You The Best’ at 35,000ft yesterday, surprising customers on a British Airways flight from London Heathrow to Los Angeles. always thought of Lewis as a high flyer and following take-off, he made his way through the aircraft with a British Airways drinks trolley, much to the surprise of those on board, including four unsuspecting superfans who had been personally invited onto the flight. 

Lewis serenaded customers with a chorus and verse of the unreleased track, with the lyrics declaring “it seems like Glasgow gets further from LA”, as the flight travelled across the Atlantic.

It’s been a whirlwind return for Lewis, rocketing straight to the top of the UK singles chart with comeback single, ‘Forget Me’ and on latest single ‘Pointless’ which became his fourth UK number 1, an honour that equals the likes of Whitney Houston, Cher, Jay-Z, One Direction, Pharrell, Justin Timberlake and Usher.

Ahead of the album, a special, raw and honest feature length music documentary, ‘Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling Now’, in partnership with Netflix, BMG, & Pulse Films, executive produced by Independent Entertainment will be released globally on Netflix on April 5th.

His highly anticipated second album Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent is out May 19th on EMI Records. Selling over 10 million copies worldwide, debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent propelled Capaldi from bedroom musician to superstar. Few have seen a debut release quite like it, becoming the biggest selling UK album of 2019 & 2020, spawning two UK number 1 singles, bagging a few BRITs and a Grammy nomination, with one of those number 1’s becoming a smash hit on both sides of the globe in ‘Someone You Loved’, which recently became the UK’s most streamed song of ALL TIME.

Having recently sold out his 2023 UK arena tour in a matter of seconds, he will headline Reading & Leeds Festival in August, perform at Glastonbury Festival, as well as play his biggest headline summer shows to date to over 30,000 fans a night in Manchester, Edinburgh & Belfast. Lewis is currently embarking on his biggest ever sold-out headline tour of North America this Spring. 

If his first album made him an international star, with his second it’s nothing less than superstardom that beckons. With the public now getting an inside look into the life of a global superstar, the insatiable appetite for Capaldi burns as bright as ever.
