Lewis, 27, took to Instagram on New Year’s Eve to share the news that an extended version of his most recent album Broken by Desire to Be Heavenly Sent would be available on January 1 while also sharing a health update.
In response to the news, Instagrammer Mia screamed: ‘OMG LEWIS IMMA BOUT TO DIE I LOVE YOUUU THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER OMG,’ while Juno added, ‘This is the best news in a while, super excited.’
Gabby raved: ‘New songs i’m gonna s**t my pants’ while Martina exclaimed, ‘BEST NEWS EVER.’
The award-winning hitmaker’s full social media statement read: ‘Hello everyone, it’s Lewis here!
‘Firstly, I want to start this by saying I hope you’re all doing well out there, I’ve missed you!’
He continued: ‘As most of you will know, I’m currently taking some time off to focus on my health and wellbeing and it’s been going great! I’ve been working with some incredible professionals to help me learn about and cope better with my Tourette’s and anxiety issues.
‘I’m really happy to say I’ve noticed a marked improvement in both since I decided to take some time off back in June.
‘I was completely overwhelmed by the reaction to the news that I was taking a break and genuinely want to thank each and every one of you who reached out, left a comment, tweet or dm wishing me well, the support was like nothing I’ve ever experienced and has made me more excited than ever to return to doing what I love at some point in the not too distant future.’
Lewis went on: ‘For now though I just want to say another massive thank you for the support on my second album.
‘This album was a scary one for me- if you saw the film I made on Netflix you probably know this already. But I was absolutely terrified of disappointing you all, afraid of not living up to expectations and in all honesty scared that the whole thing would be a complete flop.
‘But thanks to all of you, it wasn’t. It’s mind-blowing to see the songs on this album still resonating with so many of you despite the fact I’ve not been out there promoting it or touring, it means the world to me.
‘Which brings me to the reason for this big b*****d of a letter I’m writing…’
He continued: ‘Prior to my decision to f**k off for a bit, I’d always hoped to release an extended version at some point!
‘After some back-and- forth about whether or not it was the right thing to do, I’ve decided it would be a shame for these extra five songs, which are so incredibly special to me, to sit on my hard drive, never to see the light of day.
‘With that, I’m absolutely over the moon to announce that Broken Bv Desire To Be Heavenly Sent (Extended Edition) will be yours to listen to tomorrow on New Year’s Day!’
Lewis concluded: ‘For now 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.
‘I want to make absolutely sure I’m 100% before getting back out there again properly for more shows and doing what I love more than anything.
‘These songs mean the world to me and I’d be gutted if I’d not been able to share them.
‘Hope this tides you all over until we can get in a room and sing them together some day very soon!’
He confirmed in June that he’d be from public life as he cancelled tour plans ‘for the foreseeable future’ to
Lewis’s devastating announcement followed his performance at Glastonbury Festival, where he and fans helped him finish songs when he struggled with his Tourette’s.
