"Someone You Loved" is a song recorded by Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi. It was released as a download on 8 November 2018 through Vertigo Records and Universal Music as the third single from his second extended play, Breach (2018), and was later included on his debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent (2019). The song was written by Capaldi, Samuel Romans, and its producers Thomas Barnes, Peter Kelleher and Benjamin Kohn.

"Someone You Loved" was a commercial success, peaking at number one on the UK Singles Chart. The song became Capaldi's first number one single and spent seven consecutive weeks atop of the chart. It also peaked at number one on the Irish Singles Chart in March 2019. In the United States, "Someone You Loved" was a sleeper hit, topping the Billboard Hot 100 in its 24th week on the chart.

Background[edit]

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."[3] The song is about breaking up with or losing a person who means a lot to you.

Chart performance[edit]

"Someone You Loved" reached number one on the UK Singles Chart[4] and stayed there for seven consecutive weeks.[5] It is also Capaldi's first entry on the US Billboard Hot 100, debuting at number 85 and peaking at number 1.[6]
