AceShowbiz - Lewis Capaldi has written 11 songs while self-isolating in the hope of releasing a new album next year (21).
The Scot shared the news of his plans to release a follow-up to last year's (19) hit "Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent" during a question-and answer-session with fans via Instagram, revealing he's been hard at work on lockdown.
"I have 11 songs for the new album now," he said. "Hopefully it will be out at some point next year."
He also opened up about his struggle to create something better than last year's debut.
"Writing a follow-up to this big guy has been equal parts difficult and rewarding," he explained. "Most of the time, when I was making the first album I felt like I was making an a**e of it."
The album was released a year ago on Sunday (May 17), and remains a fixture in the U.K.'s top five, as well as finding success around the world. Lewis was also a big winner at the BRIT Awards thanks in part to the album.
