Lewis Capaldi’s upcoming documentary will see the star “return to his Scottish roots” and reconnect with family and friends, Netflix has said.
Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling Now was announced on Thursday afternoon, alongside a short teaser trailer showing him parodying some of Netflix’s biggest titles.
Directed by BAFTA award-winner Joe Pearlman, the 90-minute film will follow Capaldi at a “pivotal moment in his career”, as he returns to reconnect with family and friends after achieving global success.
Filmed over several years, it will follow the 26-year-old singer-songwriter as he moves back in with his parents to work on his second album.
Describing the documentary, Netflix said: “The film captures Capaldi’s defining year, struggling to balance the familiarity of home, normality, and all he’s ever known, with life as one of the biggest stars on the planet, gleaning an intimate portrait of his unique character, hopes and fears in his own words.
“Digging beneath the popular clichés surrounding the most unlikely of popstars reveals a deeply thoughtful and self-reflective young man at a unique crossroads in his life as he carries the weight of trying to eclipse the success of his record-breaking debut album.”
The film has been co-financed by Qucikfire Films and BMG, Capaldi’s long time global music publisher, and produced by Pulse Films.
Independent Entertainment are handling global sales and also serve as executive producers, alongside BMG.
Lewis Capaldi: How I’m Feeling Now will be available to watch on Netflix globally on April 5, 2023.
