Listen: Lewis Capaldi drops new single ‘Pointless’

Lewis Capaldi has dropped new single ‘Pointless’, the second to be taken from his upcoming album ‘Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent’, which is released on 19th May 2023 via EMI Records.

‘Pointless’ was written with Steve Mac and Johnny McDaid, and it was one of the earliest compositions for the new album. The trio were writing another song, which didn’t end up making the record, when Capaldi’s collaborators mentioned a verse they’d previously begun writing with Ed Sheeran.

“Ed had that lyric, ‘I bring her coffee in the morning, she brings me inner peace’”, Capaldi recalls of the opening line. “And pretty much every other line of that opening was just banging.”

Inspired, Capaldi got to work, writing a chorus and middle-eight. By the end of the day, ‘Pointless’ was completed.
