- Read more: Is Lewis Capaldi’s Number One success the moment pop finally ate itself (like a sausage roll)?
In an interview with Radio X‘s Maz Tappuni, Capaldi was asked whether he was the man to get Oasis back together, at which point he appealed directly to the Gallagher brothers in the hope that they might get the band back together.
“Both of you probably don’t like my music, and wouldn’t you love to see me not be in the charts?” he asked. “If you guys got back together and do an Oasis album repackage, you’ll knock me out the charts for sure. And look, you probably don’t like that I’m in the… I mean, Noel, for one, you don’t like the tunes my man, you don’t like them. And Liam, I mean, look, you probably don’t like them either so if you guys want to eradicate me from popular music what you’re going to have to do is get together and reform. I’ll see you there.”
He added: “Imagine they did!”
Watch Lewis Capaldi’s plea to the Gallaghers below:
Noel Gallagher had been locked in a not-so-serious feud with the Scottish singer-songwriter ever since he declared that “music is fucking wank at the moment”, before going on to directly mention Capaldi.
The pair’s feud seemingly came to an end when they met up last month at Mad Cool Festival, where Capaldi apparently gave “him a hug”.
Following the meeting, the singer now says Gallagher “loves him”.
Capaldi added: “He’s a lovely man, there was no animosity. I mean, I’ve got new T-shirt ideas for Chewis Capaldi for him calling me Chewbacca. This is totally fine, do you know what I mean?”
The clip sees the singer hours before his set wearing a homemade cardboard sign saying ‘HOLD ME’, before he goes around embracing festival-goers.
