Lewis Capaldi has written 30 new songs for his second studio album out in 2021

"It all sounds pretty much the same as the last record in terms of it's sad - that's the theme we're sticking to."

Lewis Capaldi has shared more details of his second studio album in a string of US radio interviews.

Lewis has 20-30 songs ready to go for what he described as his "very mediocre" second album due for release in 2021.

In typical hilarious Lewis style, he said he knew he had to get productive in lockdown after he looked down and saw nothing but Doritos crumbs on his chest. 

"I thought 'I'm going to go and start a new album', and I did just that," Lewis told US radio station Y100Miami. "The first three weeks [of lockdown] I did nothing, and then I started doing Zoom sessions after that. Now we've got 20 to 30 songs for a new album so it's been relatively productive.

"It all sounds pretty much the same as the last record in terms of it's sad, so we can let everyone know that's the theme we're sticking to for 2021 which is when it will probably be out."

Lewis joked to Hits 96.1 in North Carolina that album two will be like 'his first album took steroids' because the record label will give him more money for this one.

"I appreciate and respect artists that can go away and reinvent themselves. I am a chubby young boy from Scotland and that's it. But I'm content being that. I don't see many other chubby Scottish boys singing at the Grammys."

Lewis told iHeart Radio's Johnjay & Rich more information, explaining he hopes to be back in London within the next fortnight to work more on his second album.

"Restrictions of lockdown are being lifted here so I think I'm going to be able to go to London in the next two weeks to start recording it properly," the Scottish singer explained. "I've written about 30 so far in the course of lockdown. So it's been a fruitful pandemic for me. I've finished 30 but about four of them are good. I'm pretty chuffed with how it's gone so far." 

Lewis' debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent has so far spent 10 weeks at Number 1 since its released last May, and has logged a consecutive 59 weeks and counting in the Official Albums Chart Top 10. It was the biggest album of 2019 and remains the most popular album so far in 2020.
