Scotland’s Lewis Capaldi, who joined the likes of Rex Orange County & Sigrid on the BBC’s Sound Of 2018 longlist, releases his latest single, ‘Tough’ – and you can listen to it on the core Premier League Music playlist.
If you’ve ever wrestled with your own mind in a relationship’s last moments, ‘Tough’ – a blow-by-blow account of the wreckage of a heartbreak – is likely to be the song you yearned for.
Since his debut track ‘Bruises‘ exploded online just over 10 months ago, Capaldi has been able to boast incredibly rare markers in his still fledgling career, whether it be selling a staggering 20,000 headline show tickets, amassing over 155 million plays across streaming services & selling out no less than three back-to-back headline tours, with demand outstripping supply at every turn.
Lewis’ personal achievements haven’t gone unnoticed by his musician peers, however, with Sam Smith, Rag’n’ Bone Man & Niall Horan offering Capaldi an audience of 500,000+ people, the young 21-year-old who only 18 months previous, had been plugging-in, night-after-night into the local pub gig circuit of Glasgow.
Capaldi soon kicks off his debut US & Australian Tours, which is followed by a slew of festivals across the globe follows, culminating in his fourth and biggest UK & European tour to date, including a night at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire and Glasgow’s 2,200 capacity ‘Barrowlands’.
