Lewis Capaldi has spoken openly about his struggles throughout his music career as he gears up to the release of his deeply personal documentary, How I'm Feeling Now.

He started the vulnerable post by writing: "When the opportunity to make a documentary came up for me I was extremely hesitant.

"I think because I seem quite open about a lot of things whether it be in interviews, on stage or social media people assume they know a lot about me and my life but in actual fact I tend to keep a lot of things to myself as a matter of preference," Lewis continued.

Despite his candid nature throughout the years, he revealed in the statement that there are some things he's chosen to keep out of the limelight, which he will be divulging for the first time in the documentary.

Lewis explained: "I feel like there’s a lot of things in it I haven’t spoken about before and in truth the whole film became way more intimate than I’d ever imagined so it feels like a particularly vulnerable position to be in."

The 'Someone You Loved' hitmaker told fans that the project had been in the works for over two years and revealed that he's "wildly nervous" about its release.

How I'm Feeling Now is also the title of a song that will drop at midnight on March 17, it was the last track Lewis wrote for his upcoming album and explores themes of mental health, which is some he had "never really written about" before.

The pop star admitted: "As much as the last 5 years have been the best of my life, I would be lying if I said it all hasn't taken its toll mentally."

Lewis shared that since working in music he has experienced "extremely low points" and this is what inspired his next single.

He called making the documentary "one of the most amazing and extremely peculiar experiences of my life", How I'm Feeling Now comes out on Netflix on April 5.
