Lewis Capaldi is working with Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid on his new album.

The Scottish superstar has co-written with a number of famous stars, including Bastille’s Dan Smith, OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder and JC Stewart, for his follow-up to his record-breaking debut album of 2019, ‘Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent’.

And now it has been revealed that the Irish songwriter, who is known for co-writing songs for his friend Ed Sheeran and the likes of Robbie Williams and Alicia Keys, is also on board.

An insider told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: ‘Lewis understands that people expect big things from his second album – and he’s put a lot of work into it.

“He’s an amazing songwriter, but involving people like Johnny has also taken things to the next level.

“Lewis wrote so many songs that it was difficult to narrow them down to a list of songs for the album. But everything is falling into place now and there is not long to wait.

Dan – who also wrote songs for YUNGBLUD’s new album – recently admitted that writing with Lewis has been the highlight, and he loves “hanging out” with his pal.

He said: “I spent a few days writing with Lewis. I know he takes his time and wants to do it right.

“It was nice to see him and he’s still f****** hilarious – never turn down the opportunity to hang out with Lewis.”

Ryan – who has worked on hits for Adele and Beyonce – said: “I was playing the songs an hour ago in the car and it’s like, goosebumps! The guy could sing a random song in Spanish and it would always give me goose bumps. He’s so good.

As for JC, he already wrote the track “Hollywood” on Lewis’ first album.

He said, “We’ve written a few songs over the past year. But first and foremost, we’re friends, so we’re sticking with it.”

Lewis’ debut album – which included hit singles “Someone You Loved” and “Before You Go” – spent 36 weeks in the Top 10, including 10 weeks at No. 1, and became the fastest-selling album ever. of the year in the UK.
