Singer Lewis Capaldi has extended his tour hiatus after his health improved

Lewis Capaldi has confirmed he will extend his break from touring after a six-month absence as his health improves.

In June he announced that he would be stopping his performance schedule “for the foreseeable future”.

The announcement comes after the singer-songwriter struggled with her voice during filming at Glastonbury.

In a post on social media, she said she works with professionals to help manage her Tourette’s Syndrome and anxiety.

The 27-year-old said: “I’m really pleased to say that I’ve seen a marked improvement in both since I decided to take time off in June.”


The “Someone You Loved” singer said he would also release an extended version of his second album “Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent” featuring five new songs on Monday.

He said: “For now I will continue to take time to look after myself, maybe write some music and take a moment to reflect on some of the most extraordinary years of my life.

“I want to be absolutely sure that I’m 100% before I get back out there again well for more shows and doing what I love more than anything.

‘These songs mean a lot to me and I would be sad if I couldn’t share them. Hopefully this will entertain you until we can get into a room and sing it together someday.’

He also thanked fans for their support, saying their reaction was “unlike I’ve ever experienced and makes me more excited than ever to get back to doing what I love someday in the not too distant future.”

In the Netflix documentary “Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling Now,” Capaldi talks about how the pressure of fame has affected him mentally and physically.

After the success of his first album “Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent”, expectations were high for his next album and he spoke about the impact of the pressure in the documentary.

In a social media post, he said: “If you saw the film I made on Netflix, you probably already know about it.

“But I was really scared of disappointing you all, scared of not living up to expectations and honestly scared that everything would be a total failure.

“But thanks to all of you, it wasn’t. It’s amazing to see that the songs on this album still resonate with so many of you despite the fact that I’ve never promoted or toured, it means the world to me.”

“Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent” amassed 95,000 chart units during its first week on sale in May 2023.

The album held the title of biggest opening of the year until Taylor Swift released a re-recording of her 2014 album “1989”.

His first album sold more than any other album in the UK in 2019 and was also the best-selling album of 2020.
