Lewis Capaldi is launching a set of NFT trading cards offering an in-person fan experience.
The 'Grace' hitmaker has announced his partnership with tech firm Bondly and is giving his fans the chance to join him on “an experimental journey”.
Those who claim one of the cards will be granted access to a special private event in 2022 and have access to "unique perks".
Lewis said in a statement: “I’m absolutely buzzing to be launching these trading cards with the incredible team over at Bondly.
“This has been something I’ve been really excited about for a while & have been working on the game behind the scenes so it’s great to be able to finally announce this to everyone! Can’t wait to be giving a small preview of what’s coming up to a few of ya early next year! x (sic)'
What's more, the 24-year-old singer has also partnered with Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy Charity.
The Scottish pop star is the latest big name to jump on the NFT bandwagon, along with the likes of The Weeknd, Kings of Leon, Grimes, Charli XCX, and Calvin Harris.
NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are a type of cryptocurrency assets where single-impression unique digital art and goods known as the 'token' can be sold.
Lewis' NFT news comes after the star postponed all his 2021 concerts to concentrate on completing his second album.
The 'Someone You Loved' singer decided to have a year off touring due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and he is instead going to spend 2021 finishing his follow-up to his acclaimed 2019 debut record 'Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent'.
In a lengthy Instagram post to his 5.5. million followers, Lewis admitted he was pulling out of his live shows with a "heavy heart" but promised his fans he would be back with a new album and new songs to play for them in 2022.
His social media post read: "Hello everyone, it's Lewis Capaldi here. It's been a while, hope you're all staying safe!
"Just want to start off this wee note by saying how class it is to see things looking more hopeful for the world after an absolutely horrible year. I've been looking back at the madness of my life for the last little while and feeling really grateful to be able to call this music carry on a job for the past few years.
"I'd be lying if I said I haven't been terrified about making my next album since the moment I finished 'Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent'.
"I've been writing loads of tunes I'm really excited about and I can't wait for you to hear them. I really want to make sure whatever I put out next is the absolute best it can be, partly for my own sanity, cause I'm going to have to sing these songs every night for the next few years on tour, but ultimately for all of you who made the first album everything it was.
"Despite having all this extra time to write, all the COVID restrictions have made it harder to go and record stuff I've been working on or even be around all the people I loved working with on the first album.
"For that reason, it is with an extremely heavy heart that I've made the difficult decision to reschedule this year's shows and put all my effort into making the best album I can for you.
"I hate the thought of letting anyone down, especially after the year we've just had but I know that, more than anything, getting the album right has to be my number one priority at the moment. I hope you understand.
"I'm really sorry I won't be out there with you this year, but I'll be back in 2022 with new music and a shit load of shows in as many places as I can possibly get to across the world."
