Following popular singers such as Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande who have released their own Netflix documentaries, Scottish star Lewis Capaldi has now announced that fans will be able to get behind-the-scenes look into his life, as a film arrives on the streaming platform this spring. Directed by BAFTA winner Joe Pearlman (Bros: After the Screaming Stops), this all-access Netflix documentary follows the Brit award-winning and Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi at a pivotal moment in his career.
The star revealed his documentary with a video dressed as a number of characters from the streaming platform’s top programmes such as Bridgerton, Squid Game and Tiger King. After achieving unbelievable global success, Lewis Capaldi returns to his Scottish roots and attempts to reconnect with his old life and the family and friends he left behind.
Filmed over several years, with exclusive, never-before-seen footage, the 26-year-old multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter somewhat dizzyingly finds himself back at his parent’s house in Scotland to begin work on his highly anticipated second album.
The film titled Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling Now captures Capaldi’s defining year, struggling to balance the familiarity of home, normality, and all he’s ever known, with life as one of the biggest stars on the planet, gleaning 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.
Co-financed by BMG, Capaldi’s long time global music publisher, and Quickfire, Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling Now is a BMG presents, in association with Quickfire Films, and Pulse Films production and the documentary will arrive on Netflix globally on April 5.
Lewis Capaldi’s new album Broken by Desire to be Heavenly Sent is set to be released on May 19 on EMI records. He has been announced for Glastonbury 2023, which will be headlined by Arctic Monkeys, Guns ‘n’ Roses and Elton John.
