Lewis Capaldi sent fans into a frenzy by debuting brand new music during his second gig at London’s O2.

The 25-year-old singer-songwriter played a snippet of his new song called Forget Me, three years after the release of his chart-topping debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent.

Capaldi went live on Tik Tok to anticipate the announcement during his set, and after performing Before You Go and Someone You Loved he announced that his new single will be released on September 9th.

The Scottish star, who took the stage wearing a white t-shirt, black jeans and a navy blue jacket, said: “I said at the start of the show that it’s been a while since I’ve released new music, a long time, three years in fact, but fortunately 9 September changes.

“Next week I will release my first single from this upcoming album, it’s called Forget Me, so that’s good news.

“Also, I’ll play that song for everyone here tonight. I’m showing my song to 20,000 people for the first time, I’m very nervous.

“Nobody has heard all this music but all of you here tonight.”

Last year, Capaldi postponed all of his live shows to focus on recording a follow-up to his 2019 album which spent 10 weeks at the top of the UK chart.

After opening the highly anticipated show with Grace and Forever, the singer chatted to the crowd in his signature humorous and down-to-earth style.

He said: “This woman keeps waving the crutch in the air, your benefits will be revoked. There will be some government in here, I’m just taking care of you.

The pop star gave a raw and emotional performance on Friday, giving the audience a series of hit songs for the final of her two sets at the London O2.

Pausing his set during the Headspace song after the crowd drew attention to someone who needed help, he said, “I think I’m a good guy, I think he cares about you.”

A funny moment came during the song Bruises, where Capaldi was seen playing a piano from above on a floating stage.

He said: “I never thought I was afraid of heights, it’s intense, true. It’s all a fucking facade, I don’t even play the piano.

“It’s show business, we’re all liars.”

Audiences also laughed when he compared himself to Quasimodo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame, as he reclined on his piano.

During a nearly two-hour show, Capaldi commanded the stage as he screamed favorites Don’t Get Me Wrong, One, Hollywood, Hold Me While You Wait, Maybe and Fade, sparking mass singing among 20,000 fans.

He closed the performance with his number one hit Someone You Loved accompanied by a deep red background.

He said: “Thank you very much, I’m at the O2. It really means the world to me, as I told the crowd last night, these two nights were truly two of the happiest days of my life. Thank you.”

The concert comes after he starred in Parklife, the Isle Of Wight Festival and Scotland’s largest music festival, Trnsmt, offering an exciting set to 50,000 fans flocking to Glasgow Green.

In July, radio DJ Scott Mills and Chris Stark enlisted the singer’s help to announce the news of their departure from BBC Radio 1.

Capaldi recorded a video in which he shared the news, which was later shared on social networks.
