Fans have finally got their first peak at Lewis Capaldi’s upcoming documentary How I’m Feeling Now. The chart-topping star shared a preview with his millions of fans on Thursday (March 16) as he dropped its trailer across his social media.
The film, directed by BAFTA nominee Joe Pearlman, shares an insight into the Scottish singer-songwriter’s highs and lows away from the spotlight. The Glasgow born artist announced he would be sharing his life with fans through a documentary earlier this month.
Ahead of the trailer’s release today, Capaldi reflected on the project on Instagram as he admitted he was initially "extremely hesitant" to lift the lid on his personal life, but after two years of working on it, he is "looking forward to sharing it with the world”.
How I’m Feeling Now is not Capaldi’s only foray into the documentary world. Late last year, he also appeared in a road trip style film which followed him and his singer best friend Niall Horan’s travel to the former one-direction star’s hometown of Mullingar.
Following the release of the How I’m Feeling trailer, we take a look at what fans could expect from the project and when it will arrive on Netflix.
