Rita Ora shares new Lewis Capaldi-penned single ‘How To Be Lonely’

The track was given to Ora, Capaldi says, because he was "shite at singing it"

Rita Ora has shared her Lewis Capaldi-penned new single ‘How To Be Lonely’.

The track is Ora’s first release in 2020 and follows 2019 singles ‘Only Want You’, ‘Carry On’, and ‘Ritual’.

Listen to the new track below.


It was revealed that Capaldi wrote the new song on his Instagram story earlier this week (March 9). “Sometimes you write songs and you sing them and you go, ‘I’m fucking shite at this’,” Capaldi explained. “I said, ‘I don’t know, I’m not very good at singing this’. And they go, ‘How about you get someone who can sing it?'”

“And now a baby’s been born,” Ora added.

Capaldi, who is currently on an arena tour of the UK, recently said that his label hired him an etiquette expert to teach the singer how to walk and talk more elegantly, as part of a “jokey video series” for his 2018 single ‘Grace’.


The lessons, which took place in October 2018, were taught by “celebrity party organiser” Liz Brewer, according to the Daily Record, who was reportedly paid a five-figure sum for a three-hour session at her home in Chelsea. The three sessions covered introductions at social functions, dining etiquette, and how to walk appropriately.

Meanwhile, the Scottish star launched a new mental health scheme last week (March 6). Livelive is designed to help fans attending his shows with panic attacks and social anxiety.
