Lewis Capaldi Says “All Downhill” After Breakout Success of ‘Someone You Loved’ | Grammys


– [Interviewer] We are
here with Lewis Capaldi. He’s had a breakout year. Now, I’ve run into you
a few times this week, and you are constantly joking
about being a one-hit wonder. You can’t believe that’s true. You put out an incredible album. Tell me a little bit about where you think you’re headed from here, after “Someone You Loved.” – Can you repeat that last bit, sorry? – [Interviewer] Where do
you think you’re headed after having such a massive hit? – Downhill. ♪ It’s all downhill from here ♪ (whistles) Listen, we had a good year. Right now, song’s doing well, great. But after that… Then the work starts to dry
up, the phone doesn’t ring, I’m alone in my apartment, and with my dog, who hates me. He’s 15 years old, his name’s Paddy. And yeah, I foresee my career being a tailspin shortly after this, yes. – [Interviewer] I think you are
incredibly wrong about that. But the fact that “Someone You Loved” has connected the way it has, why do you think that
song has been the one to really take your career to new heights? – I don’t really know. I’m quite glad that it has, to be honest. I mean, I almost never put
that song on the album, which would have been a disaster. That album would have been a failure had it not been for that song. Yeah, I don’t know why
that one’s connected, but I’ve very glad that it has that one ’cause I think that one’s, like, if you’ve heard that
song, you kinda get a gist of what my music is, do
you know what I mean, sad. Basically, imagine Adele, and she’s a guy, and she’s not as talented, and that’s me. Do you know what I mean? – [Interviewer] Yes, well,
thank you so much for your time. Congrats and have fun tonight. – Thank you.
