Lewis Capaldi has shared the video for his new single “Pointless,” directed by Hector Dockrill. “Pointless” is the second single released from Capaldi’s forthcoming sophomore album Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent, due out via Capitol Records on May 19. You can pre-order/pre-save the upcoming LP – here.
Pointless was one of the first songs written by Capaldi for Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent, and is the follow-up to Capaldi’s gold-certified smash single “Forget Me,” which amassed over two million streams in just 24 hours. Pointless took shape from a song his co-writers Steve Mac and Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid had created with Ed Sheeran. Says Capaldi: “Ed had that lyric, ‘I bring her coffee in the morning, she brings me inner peace,’ and pretty much every other line of that opening was just banging.”
The cinematic video for Pointless follows the relationship and unconditional bond between a mother (Niamh Algar) and her son (George Jaques), navigating their way through moments of adolescence and adulthood. You can take a look at the video – here.
