Alfie Templeman announces new mini-album 'Forever Isn't Long Enough'

With a string of highly-praised singles and EPs under his belt already, Alfie Templeman is making his mark on 2021 with the announcement of a brand new mini-album.

The new collection 'Forever Isn't Long Enough' will include the previously shared title-track, alongside the newly unveiled single 'Everybody's Gonna Love Somebody', and is set to be released on the 7th May via Chess Club Records.

Speaking about the new release, he said, “I wanted to make a refined and focused pop record – something more widescreen than an EP but more concise than a full-length album -with a feel somewhere between Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumours’ and Tame Impala’s ‘Currents’. In making ‘Forever Isn’t Long Enough’ I realised that I needed to slow down a little and work on things carefully. The songs took anywhere from one day to 4 months to 2 years to finish for this record, but I made sure each one was perfect and I’ve never been more proud of how they all came out.”

While adding about the new track, “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 realised 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.”
