Do Broken by desireCapaldi reunited with writing and production trio, TMS, as well as Phil Plested, with whom he worked on Divinely uninspired. The new disc also includes contributions from pop’s most indomitable hitmaker, Max Martin.
“I don’t want to create a new sound for myself or reinvent myself,” Capaldi said of Broken by desire in a report. “The songs I want to write are emotional songs, about love or loss.”
In addition to details Broken by desire, Capaldi announced an extensive world tour in support of the record. The trek will begin early next year with a series of dates in the UK, Ireland and Europe.
