Having teased fans with a Valentines Day Rickroll, Alfie Templeman has dropped his latest track.
Taking to the airwaves for his fourth, consecutive, Annie Mac’s Hottest Record, Alfie Templeman has dropped his first track of the year ‘Everybody’s Gonna Love Somebody’.
The new single – written, performed, and produced entirely by Templeman in his bedroom – takes inspiration from classic groove-laden 80s pop, with sultry sax lines weaving their way between popping guitar rhythms. The Bedfordshire teen explains: “I first wrote and recorded “Everybody’s Gonna Love Somebody” back in 2017 when I was 14 years old and it’s been ingrained in my memory ever since. I’d always go back to it and try to re-record it but I could never quite get it right – then I went on a Tears For Fears binge and realized that it needed that “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” kind of production. I got back in the studio, changed a few lyrics, and cut it in a couple of hours. It’s probably my favourite song on the new record.”
Along with the new track comes the news that Alfie will be releasing a new mini-album this May. Titled Forever Isn’t Long Enough, the mini-album will be the seventeen-year old’s final piece of work before he starts recording his debut album.
