He made the announcement via a very funny video.
Lewis Capaldi has announced that he is teaming up with Netflix for a documentary called How I'm Feeling Now.
Set for release next month, the film is said to follow Capaldi on his journey back to his roots where he reconnects with his friends and family after becoming a global success.
In an announcement video posted to social media on Thursday, Capaldi can be seen dressed up as iconic characters from the streaming service's most popular shows including Bridgerton, Wednesday, Squid Game and Tiger King.
The 'Forget Me' singer ends the teaser clip by telling fans that How I'm Feeling Now will be released on 5 April.

Directed by BAFTA winner Joe Pearlman (Harry Potter 20th Anniversary), the plot synopsis for the documentary reads:
"Four years in the making and following five back-to-back sold-out global headline tours, screaming fans and history-making chart success, the singer-songwriter somewhat dizzyingly finds himself back at his parent’s house in Scotland to begin work on his highly-anticipated second album.
"The film captures Capaldi’s defining year, struggling to balance the familiarity of home, normality and all he’s ever known, with life as one of the biggest stars on the planet, gleaning an intimate portrait of his unique character, hopes and fears in his own words.
"Digging beneath the popular clichés surrounding the most unlikely of popstars reveals a deeply thoughtful and self-reflective young man at a unique crossroads in his life as he carries the weight of trying to eclipse the success of his record-breaking debut album."
In a statement about the upcoming release, Capaldi said: “I’m pretty terrified for people to see this documentary if I’m quite honest, but I’m also really proud of it. I hope you enjoy it."
How I'm Feeling Now will arrive ahead of the release of the singer's second album 'Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent', which is out on 19 May.
