Scots singer Lewis Capaldi has received a Grammy nomination for hit single Someone You Loved.

The 23-year-old, from Bathgate, is rubbing shoulders with the likes of Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey in Song of the Year category.

Capaldi’s popularity has exploded in 2019, selling out arena shows across the world in minutes and releasing his debut album in May.

Someone You Loved spent seven weeks at number one in the UK charts this summer, and is currently in its third week on top of the US Billboard Hot 100.

Written alongside Tom Barnes, Pete Kelleher, Benjamin Kohn and Sam Roman, the song made Capaldi the first Scottish chart-topper in the US since Sheena Easton in 1981, with her hit Morning Train (Nine To Five).

The video for the song featured Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi – a distant relation.

Yesterday, Capaldi released Before You Go, which he called his “most personal” yet.

It centres on the suicide of his aunt when he was a child, and is featured on the extended edition of his album which is released this Friday.


Scots violinist Nicola Benedetti is also nominated in one of the classical music categories.

The 32-year-old and conductor Cristian Măcelaru of the Philadelphia Orchestra are nominated for Best Classical Instrumental Solo for Marsalis: Violin Concerto; Fiddle Dance Suite.

The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards take place on Sunday, 26 January 2020, hosted by Alicia Keys.
