Lewis Capaldi opens up about 'extremely low points' in music career

Lewis Capaldi spoke candidly with fans about his mental health struggles since finding fame amid news he is set to release a documentary on Netflix.

The 26-year-old singer posted a lengthy announcement on Twitter along with the poster for his behind-the-scenes film he titled Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling Now.

In his update, he revealed he had experienced some ‘extremely low points’ in his career thus far that left him in a ‘vulnerable position’. 

Mirroring the name of his upcoming film, the star captioned his post that included a message typed out into a series of screenshotted note pages: ‘How I’m Feeling Now x [sic]’. 

He began sharing with his fans: ‘When the opportunity to make a documentary came up for me I was extremely hesitant.

‘I think because I seem quite open about a lot of things whether it be in interviews, on stage or social media people assume they know a lot about me and my life but in actual fact I tend to keep a lot of things to myself as a matter of preference.

‘I feel like there’s a lot of things in it I haven’t spoken about before and in truth the whole film became way more intimate than I’d ever imagined so it feels like a particularly vulnerable position to be in’. 

Admitting he was ‘wildly nervous’ about the film’s release, he shared that it would document some of his ‘extremely low points’.

The Netflix release was named after a song on the star’s upcoming album that speaks to how he has navigated his explosive career thus far.

Fans and friends were quick to react to the star’s news and expressed their eagerness to see the documentary – that’s trailer is set to be released on March 16. 

One penned: ‘can’t wait to watch it! Well done mate’. 

Another typed: ‘Being vulnerable is a super power Lewis. Not everyone can show their vulnerable side… love you lots x [sic]’. 

‘So you’re saying that we’ll get BOTH the documentary AND a new song?!,’ was a social media user’s excited response. 

Lewis also revealed he would be releasing the song from which the film earned its name on March 17 at midnight.
