I am a sucker for any music from Scottish singer songwriter Lewis Capaldi. But Lewis Capaldi’s ‘Grace‘, I have to say, is my most favorite yet.
And, if I didn’t already love this song so much, Lewis Capaldi’s ‘Grace‘ was featured on the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy this week — Season 15, Episode 22, “Head Over High Heels” (and man, don’t the Music Supervisors of the show pick the most perfect music?!) — making me like it even more.
‘Grace‘ is from Capaldi’s soon to be released debut album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent.
The track is the lead single from the album, and was first released back in September, 2018 on Breach, his second EP. It eventually hit the number 21 spot on the UK Singles Chart, as well as number 9 in Ireland and number 6 on the Scottish chart.
The song was certified Silver in the UK.
But it is not just the song itself that makes ‘Grace‘ so beautiful, although it is so full of emotion, it is also the superb music video that came with it.
A music video that has Lewis Capaldi filling in for a friend as a stripper at a gentleman’s club.
Where, with a stereotypical Scottish matter-of-fact expression, Capaldi proceeds to hand the barman a cassette tape called ‘Big Fat Sexy Jungle Mix’, then climbs on stage and begins to dance around the stripper’s pole.
Soon he is joined by a group of sexy bare-chested (male) dancers, and Capaldi himself is doing gymnastics around the pole that cause the men in the club to go crazy with astonishment.
After all, isn’t it true that we all have ‘grace’ in something we do, regardless of who we are or what we look like?
Listen to Lewis Capaldi’s ‘Grace’ and watch that fabulous music video below.
His album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent will be released on May 17th, 2019. More about that, and more news about this talented Scottish newcomer, on Lewis Capaldi’s website.
