It is the follow-up to his debut, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, which has sales to date of 1,376,572 (Official Charts Company). It was the biggest album of both 2019 and 2020.
Capaldi said of his second album: “I don't want to create a new sound for myself, or reinvent myself. The songs I want to write are emotional songs, about love or loss.”
His recording set-up for the album was a small interface, laptop, speakers, and a Shure SM7B vocal mic.
“I felt like I was sounding better because I was just chilled out in my own gaff," he said. "Also, a lot of this record was made with most of the same people who I worked with on the first one: TMS, Phil Plested, Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway. At least one of them's on almost every song.”
Capaldi will take to the road next year for a full arena headline tour across the UK and Europe. Pre-sale opens on October 26, and general sale opens on October 28.
