Things are looking up for Lewis Capaldi lovers. The Scottish singer — who has been on a hiatus from the pop world for the past year — has been pictured back in the studio with a guitar in hand.

The musician stepped away from the industry in order to get 'his mental and physical health in order' but is now thought to be making his way back slowly to where he belongs and can be seen in a photograph shared by The Sun.

According to the publication, the Someone You Loved singer was strumming on his guitar in his home studio with British singer-songwriter Dan D’Lion.

A source said about the star, who has Tourette syndrome: “Lewis is doing really well, so much has changed in the past year.

“He has been looking after himself and getting lots of help and there’s been a sea change in how he’s feeling.

“There are no plans to return anytime soon but it’s promising that he is back jamming with his mates and thinking about music.

“It looked touch and go whether he would want to, or be able, to return at one point. So things are really looking up.”

Following a tear-jerking gig at Glastonbury last year, the singer admitted he was getting 'annoyed with himself' and was struggling to perform.

The Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent star told fans previously about taking a break: “I want to make absolutely sure I’m 100 per cent before getting back out there again properly for more shows and doing what I love more than anything.”

He told fans: “I’m going to continue taking some time to carry on looking after myself, maybe writing some music and taking a moment to reflect on some of the most incredible years of my life.

In an emotional statement shared on social media, he wrote: "First of all, thank you to Glastonbury for having me, for singing along when I needed it and for all the amazing messages afterwards. It really does mean the world.

"The fact that this probably won't come as a surprise doesn't make it any easier to write, but I'm very sorry to let you all know I'm going to be taking a break from touring for the foreseeable future.

"I used to be able to enjoy every second of shows like this and I'd hoped 3 weeks away would sort me out.

"But the truth is I'm still learning to adjust to the impact of my Tourette's and on Saturday it become obvious that I need to spend much more time getting my mental and physical health in order, so I can keep doing everything I love for a long time to come."
