With many musicians delaying the release of their new albums due to Covid-19, Scottish star Lewis Capaldi has joked that his new record will be 'meme-based' because of lockdown.

The 23-year-old singer took over the world with his debut Somebody to Love and is currently staying with his parents while he socially distances and is struggling to find inspiration to pen new songs. 

On Wednesday, he provided an update on Instagram Live.

'I'm trying my best but if I’m honest there’s nothing less inspiring than living at home with your parents during a lockdown when your dad is watching the news and then my mother, she’s recently discovered memes," he said.

"And let me tell you, it has been the bane of my existence for the last few weeks. All she does is shove her phone in my face with memes. Even when I think I’m safe in my room she’ll send me pictures."

He added: "So that’s not a very inspiring environment to create in. I’ve been trying to write but it’s been going awful because I keep getting interrupted with memes. So expect a meme-based album if I haven’t been killed by my mother."
