Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi unveiled the official video for his new single, “Someone You Loved”. The Phil Beastall-directed video stars Scottish actor Peter Capaldi (who portrayed the Twelfth Doctor in “Dr. Who”) and heightens awareness of the need for organ donors. Inspired by the desire to craft a video with a message of loss and hope, he was drawn to the topic of organ donation, and his Mum, a nurse, made him aware of Live Life Give Life. After approaching the charity, the two partnered from the get go, collaborating to bring this powerful video to fruition and provide a vital boost to struggling members who are affected by the issues of organ donation.
“I wanted to do something a bit different to what I had before and try take the opportunity to raise awareness for something that I thought was deserving”, Lewis Capaldi says. “Coincidentally, while working on the video, I received a message from a fan of my music, Jim who is currently on the organ transplant list himself. For me, this solidified how important it is to try and raise awareness for this subject in order to help Jim and the many others just like him”. Watch below.
This new video comes on the heels of Capaldi’s latest EP, Breach, which he released late last year on Capital Records. With its emotionally resonant, beautifully observed songs about love and relationships, Breach showcases Capaldi’s impeccable vocal and songwriting talent. It contains his ode to lost love, “Tough,” which sees him slipping from vocal to vocal, and “Grace,” which is “a song about being with someone who makes any negative shit going on in your life feel irrelevant.”
Capaldi will be opening for Bastille on the band’s upcoming European tour. See a list of dates below, and find tickets for all shows here.
