Filmed over a five-year period, the film by BAFTA winning director Joe Pearlman (Bros: After The Screaming Stops) and Pulse Films (AppleTV+’s Beastie Boys Story and Beyonce’s Lemonade) captures the singer-songwriter’s rise to fame.

BMG is the long-time music publisher of Capaldi, a multi-Platinum, two-time BRIT Award-winning, Grammy Award nominated singer-songwriter, whose songs include his 2019 breakthrough hit Someone You Loved.

Someone You Loved  topped the UK Official Singles chart for seven weeks, and held the No.1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks.

Capaldi’s debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent has amassed over 15 billion streams worldwide.

Independent Entertainment will be representing the production at the forthcoming Cannes Virtual Film Market.

Alistair Norbury, President Repertoire & Marketing BMG UK, said: ”We are delighted to help bring this project to life with Lewis and of course Pulse and Quickfire Films.

“As well as a great songwriter and musician, Lewis is a compelling character who has a genuine and deep connection with fans.

“This release further demonstrates our commitment to support artists across every service area from records to publishing, film to books, neighboring rights and increasingly artist management and live too.”

“I’m very excited to potentially capture the making of the best album of all time.”

Lewis Capaldi

Lewis Capaldi, said: “If the immense pressure of writing and recording a second album that has to live up to the expectations of so many people I’ve never met while also attempting to eclipse the commercial success of my previous album wasn’t enough, I decided to film the process in its entirety for your viewing pleasure.

“I’m very excited to potentially capture the making of the best album of all time, or more likely, to permanently document the scorching of my dreams as years of my life’s work is received like a pile of flaming shite.

“Either way it’s going to be lots of fun and will be lovely to have people along for the ride.”

“Lewis Capaldi is a singular pop star and character.”

Sam Bridger, Pulse Films

Sam Bridger, Head of Music Film at Pulse Films added: “At Pulse Films we have always worked collaboratively and openly with artists to create films that reveal the emotion and psychology that underpins great artists.

“Lewis Capaldi is a singular pop star and character. A raw, emotionally honest and unapologetically real artist in an over mediated and PR trained industry, Lewis is a breath of fresh air.

“We are hugely excited about the opportunity to be creating a film that takes audiences deep into his personal world at this pivotal moment in his life.”
