From the Album
• The song went on to be Capaldi's first number one on the UK Singles Chart, where it stayed for seven weeks, also becoming the best selling song of the year in the UK. It also reached number one on the Irish Singles Chart in March 2019. Lewis Capaldi wrote this song about a family members passing, but can be perceived in anyway you feel when you hear this song. Some people feel that it is about a breakup.
• In an interview with NME, Capaldi revealed that it took him six months to write the song. He said, "A lot of people say that 'the best songs fall into your lap' and that they're the easiest ones to write and take the shortest amount of time: I wholeheartedly disagree with that. I think my best songs come from me sitting at a piano, bashing my head against a brick wall for hours and hours on end to get one good melody." Song is about breakup or losing a person that means lots to you.
• "Someone You Loved" reached number one on the UK Singles Chart and stayed there for seven consecutive weeks. It is also Capaldi's first entry on the US Billboard Hot 100, debuting at number 85 and currently at number 20 (July 30, 2019).
