"BRUISES" IS TAKEN FROM HIS #1 DEBUT ALBUM DIVINELY UNINSPIRED TO A HELLISH EXTENT, OUT NOW
18 OCTOBER 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - Lewis Capaldi has today unveiled the beautifully moving video for new single "Bruises", taken from his new Bruises EP and Gold certified album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent – out now on Virgin EMI/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company.

Directed by British creative Emil Nava (Ed Sheeran, Calvin Harris, Pharrell, Rihanna), the theatrical elements build alongside the depth of the track, eventually exploding into a riot. The gripping final scene depicts the emotional push, pull and loss that Lewis offers lyrically.
"Bruises" is proving to be yet another massive hit for Lewis, which is connecting on a global scale and looking set to be another Top 10, following in the footsteps of previous tracks "Someone You Loved", "Grace" & "Hold Me While You Wait". It’s already achieved platinum status off the back of its explosive streaming numbers alone, before its official release.
2019 has propelled Lewis to superstar status. With his debut album spending six weeks in total at #1, it was certified platinum in just 10 weeks and is currently the second highest-selling album of the year, hot on the tails of The Greatest Showman OST. Becoming the biggest streamed week 1 debut of all time, the album also spawned the country’s biggest smash hit single of the year in ‘Someone You Loved’, which spent 7 weeks at the summit of the UK’s Official Singles Chart.
Success is manifesting worldwide, with sold-out tours everywhere he goes, and "Someone You Loved" rapidly climbing the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S, climbing to number 3 in the single charts. With memorable performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (watch here) and The Late Late Show with James Corden (watch here), Capaldi is being taken under the wing of every country he sets foot in.
The video comes in preparation for his sold out UK winter headline tour, as well as a 2020 arena tour which sold out before album release, making him one of the first artists to ever achieve such a feat.
Gripping, emotive and beautiful sharp, the new visuals present heartache and loss in a whole new light.
