18-year-old rising star Alfie Templeman has shared his brand new track One More Day featuring Irish newcomer April today. One More Day is taken from Templeman’s upcoming mini-album Forever Isn’t Long Enough – out on 7 May via Chess Club Records.
Forever Isn’t Long Enough, which serves as Templeman’s final and most substantial body of work before recording starts on his debut album proper, is available for pre-order. Templeman has also shared details of a Spring 2022 headline tour – including his biggest show to date at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on Mar 16. His debut American tour dates will be announced on Monday May 3rd.
A beautifully understated mini-album cut, One More Day enlists the help of fellow hyped artist April to fully conceptualize Templeman’s vision. The Bedfordshire teenager explains: “One More Day is the most subtle song on the record. I wanted to make something that sounded like the soundtrack to a sunset. April made the song that extra bit special, her verse and harmonies really complimented the track and helps you to see its context really clearly”.
April adds: “I love Alfie’s music so when he said he had a song for me to feature on I was so excited – I was instantly hooked. It’s very chilled, very late night moody drive vibes, I hope you love it as much as I do!”
Previous EP Happiness In Liquid Form followed Templeman’s trio of rapturously received EP’s – 2018’s Like An Animal, and 2019’s Sunday Morning Cereal and Don’t Go Wasting Time – in introducing the world to a prodigiously talented young musician, songwriter, producer and performer. The Bedfordshire-born teen, self-taught on 10 different instruments, has enjoyed a meteoric rise and cemented his place as one of UK indie’s brightest lights.
Templeman will perform at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on March 4th and The Leadmill in Sheffield on March 8th 2022.
