Alfie Templeman Forever Isn’t Long Enough

UK artist, Alfie Templeman has announced, his new mini-album Forever Isn’t Long Enough will drop on May 7th via Chess Club Records. Ahead of the album’s arrival, Templeman has shared the single “Everybody’s Gonna Love Somebody”, which is now available to stream.

“Everybody’s Gonna Love Somebody” was written and produced by Templeman in his bedroom. The track 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.”

Adding about the mini-album: Forever Isn’t Long Enough is the most polished collection of songs I’ve ever made. I wanted to make a refined pop record somewhere between Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours and Tame Impala’s Currents. Making Forever Isn’t Long Enough made me realise that I needed to slow down a little and work on things more carefully. Songs could take anywhere from a day to 4 months to 2 years on this record, but I made sure each one was perfect and I’ve never been more proud of how they all came out.”
