Obsolete! Lewis’ album also broke the record for highest sales of the year previously held by Ed Sheeran
Upon release, “Midnights” immediately broke a number of records, becoming the most-streamed Spotify album in a single day.
Lewis’ fans broke down in tears on Wednesday as he opened up about how his mental health issues nearly ended his career.
In his emotional documentary, the musician opens up about how the pressure after the success of his first album Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent triggered “terrible” panic attacks.
Lewis, who was diagnosed with Tourette after doctors noticed his uncontrollable shrug, also spoke of being a hypochondriac.
Hypochondria causes sufferers to experience extreme anxiety about their health, including fears of being or becoming seriously ill.
The Scottish singer said: “I’ve always been a hypochondriac.” I became obsessed with it, if something was wrong with me I thought, “Shit, I’m dying.”
“I went to a therapist and she was like, ‘Don’t you think that has something to do with the fact that your grandmother and your aunt both died when you were three and four years old, within a year?’
