“Pointless” is the second single from Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi. Released on the 2nd December 2022, it is Capaldi’s second single from his upcoming second studio album “Broken by Desire to Be Heavenly Sent”, which will be released in 2023.
The track sees Capaldi reminisce about his ex-lover, and starts off the track by listing all the good things she gives to him: “I bring her coffee in the morning / she brings me inner peace”. In an interview with The Big Issue, Capaldi explained that the song was about “being in love”, and how he wanted it to be played at weddings. The track was originally an unfinished song that Johnny McDaid, Steve Mac and Ed Sheeran had been working on. After Capaldi heard the track, he made his own changes to it and turned it into his own song.
The music video was released on the 16th December 2022, and was directed by Hector Dockrill and premiered on Capaldi’s official YouTube channel. As of the 13th January 2023, the video had a total of 2.1 million views.
