Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent (Apple Music Edition)
Ask Lewis Capaldi to describe his second album and the Scottish singer-songwriter offers a typically self-effacing response. “If you like the first album, you’ll like this one,” he tells Apple Music. “I’m not trying to reinvent the wheel here! Doom and gloom, a lot of shit you’ve heard before.” Given the star-confirming success of 2019 debut Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, that’s no bad thing. Plus, from what we’ve heard so far, Broken by Desire to Be Heavenly Sent isn’t just made up of doom and gloom. The album’s first (huge) single, “Forget Me,” marries heartache with ’80s piano pop, while on (the just-as-massive) “Pointless,” Capaldi goes all in about the one he loves. “Musically I’ve never really done a straight-up love song, about being mad, head over heels in love with someone,” he says. “So that felt like a good place.” Now, you can hear “How I’m Feeling Now,” a strikingly bare acoustic-guitar ballad that sees Capaldi open up about feeling trapped in his own mind.
