Bastille’s Dan Smith has revealed they managed to write a song with Lewis Capaldi on tour.
Dan – who has also written for Craig David, Foxes, and Tears For Fears – has revealed they managed to get the ‘Grace’ singer in their makeshift studio on the road.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column, he said: “We wrote together on tour. It was really nice.
“I’ve been doing quite a lot of writing with other people. We’d always have a studio set up backstage so we wrote a song together, which is awesome. He sang it and it sounds incredible.
“His voice is way more impressive and powerful than mine. I love the song, I think it’s wicked.”
He said: “Years ago he invited me to his house to write for a week and I think I was a bit too shy to say yes.
“I’m kicking myself now. Ed’s lovely, he’s one of the most genuine people in the music industry.”
Dan recently admitted he feels like an “imposter”.
The ‘Pompeii’ singer insisted he isn’t worried about the group’s experiments with different genres on their latest ‘Doom Days’ because he’s “comfortable” with where they are musically, even though he still feels like he leads a “double life”.
He said: “We wanted to take the listener through different moods and moments and I think we are finally really comfortable with where we are at. Don’t get me wrong, I still feel like an imposter and I still think we lead this double life where we go off on tour, play these shows and then go home and everything is back to normal.
“But we’ve never really cared about genre. It is irrelevant to us and so on our albums or our mix tapes we’ve done everything from pop to hip-hop to guitar music. We do whatever we want to.”
