Lewis Capaldi Says He Writes His Best Sad Songs When He's Happy


Scottish singer Lewis Capaldi joined Q104's The Jeremiah Show over Zoom on Tuesday, starting with the 'Someone You Loved' singer reminiscing about his classic interview at The GRAMMYs when he compared his first ever nomination to “eating a whole chicken parm.”

"I was so hammered," Lewis jokingly remembered. "That whole week was pretty fun, I have to be honest."

Now somewhat over that bloated feeling... Capaldi is currently holed up in Scotland, living with his parents in what he calls 'a shed,' naming the room he interviewed from after things that never happen in there. "I've set up a studio for making my second album," Capaldi said. "It's where I've come to seek refuge."

Capaldi has been in the news lately about his infatuation with new girlfriend Catherine Halliday, and on the topic, he dove into his song writing process. "I write my best sad songs when I'm happy," Capaldi admits. "Sometimes we deserve to be sad. That is a lesson that we could all learn. I'm a pretty happy guy, maybe not 24/7."

Lewis appreciated the cheerleading for his happiness from Jeremiah and Morgan and wishes the same for everyone. "Trust me, I think we all deserve to be happy."

The "Before You Go" hitmaker also mentioned that his time during quarantine now involves putting on a pair of jeans for the day to make himself feel like he did something productive -- a welcome development for his parents, we're sure!
