Once in a while, there are some songs that are really heart melting. It’s the interpretation of the singer, it’s the way the song grows, the lyrics, the melody that it is based on. Lewis Capaldi is a Scottish singer and songwriter that caught my ear about a year ago, with ‘Bloom’. He’s got a great voice and talent. It seems that this year will be the rising of Lewis. And he definitely deserves it, especially after the release of the ballad ‘Someone You Loved’. This is my Tune Of The Week.
The music video for “Someone You Loved” was released on 8 February 2019, starring actor Peter Capaldi, who is a relative of Lewis Capaldi. It was directed by filmmaker Phil Beastall. Filming took place in Buxton in late January 2019. The video was made in partnership with charity organisation Live Life Give Life in order to raise awareness for the issue of organ donation.[ It contains a powerful message of loss and hope, telling a story of a husband who is trying to cope with the death of his wife. She became the heart donor for the young mother of another family, saving her life. Eventually the two families are brought together and the main character knows that his wife’s heart continues to live on.
