Bathgate chart-topper Lewis Capaldi has shared a new song ahead of his upcoming UK tour. You can listen to the track, titled Before You Go, here.
The singer-songwriter, who has enjoyed an incredible year with mega-selling debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent and his first UK and US No.1 single Someone You Loved, says the new track is his “most personal” offering to date.
Before You Go is set to feature on an extended edition of Capaldi’s first album, released this Friday (November 22).
Revealing the inspiration behind the song, Capaldi wrote on Twitter: “The past year has been absolutely wild, didn’t in a million years think all of this stuff would happen to me.
“Less than two years ago I was lucky enough to get to gig in small pubs and bars back home in Scotland and somehow I am writing this with a number one single in America and getting to play to and meet thousands of ya every night all over the world.”
He added that Before You Go “is by far the most personal tune [he’s] ever written”.
Capaldi’s UK and Ireland tour kicks off in Belfast on Friday.
He will visit Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on December 5.
