The goal of LEWIS CAPALDI STRIPS is to recreate Wham!

‘s “Club Tropicana” music video, shot-for-shot, in the brand-new “Forget Me” music video.

The “Forget Me” video, which was directed by Louis Bhose, was shot at the Pikes Hotel in Ibiza, the same sunny location where George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley shot the video for their 1983 hit. Capaldi contributes by singing the song while lounging by the pool and gazing out at the ocean in a skimpy white speedo. He isn’t hesitant to bare it all for a break-up song, as much as a good amount. Of course, in the video’s last frame, he dons the pilot’s suit and takes off.

When asked how they came up with the idea for the video, Bhose said, “You hear a sad song, and you expect a sad video. That offers catharsis. However, turning totally around felt more in keeping with the Lewis who entered the stage at Glastonbury wearing full Noel Gallagher garb. ‘Yeah, no concern, just singing this song with a martini in my hand,’ says Capaldi during the performance. Here at Club Tropicana, I’m fine and not worrying about my ex.

Last week, Capaldi released “Forget Me,” his first new song since his successful 2019 debut, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent. According to Capaldi, the new song is about a breakup in which, after a year, the only meaningful communication I had with my ex was through seeing her “post-me” existence unfold on Instagram. She appeared to be progressing, prospering, and having the time of her life at a time when I was feeling quite terrible, and I despised it. I created a song about it because it felt unjust to me that she seemed joyful while I was in pain and I was concerned that she might have entirely forgotten about me.
