FRESH: ‘Pointless’ – Lewis Capaldi

Lewis Capaldi goes for the jugular with “Pointless”


Global superstar Lewis Capaldi has unveiled the heartfelt music video for his new single, the piano-led “Pointless”, taken from his brand new album “Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent”.

Relatability sits at the core of Capaldi’s artistry, and the new music video is another perfect example of this, which is directed by Hector Dockrill (Sam Fender, Post Malone).

The beautifully cinematic video follows the relationship, and unconditional bond between a mother (played by Niamh Algar) and her son (played by George Jaques), navigating their way through meandering moments of adolescence and adulthood.

The return of Lewis Capaldi has been characteristically disruptive, in the most exciting way. Rocketing straight to the top of the UK singles chart in September with comeback single “Forget Me”, his third UK number one which quickly became Gold-certified and smashed 100 million streams globally, making him the fifth artist this year to have a single go straight in at the top in its first week, putting him in the company of Harry Styles, Taylor Swift, Dave and Sam Smith.

“Pointless” arrives as one of his earliest compositions for the new album, written on the first day with Steve Mac. With Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid also on the session, the trio were working on one song (which hasn’t made the cut) when Lewis’ collaborators mentioned a verse they’d previously begun writing with Ed Sheeran.

“Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent” is due for release in May 2023.
