British musician Alfie Templeman has returned with his stellar new track, Forever Isn’t Long Enough. The song follows the 17 year old singers latest EP, Happiness In Liquid Form, which dropped in July this year.
The upbeat track finds its pace with disco rhythms infused with funk groove sounds. Lyrically, the track touches on the singers recognition of mortality, and how our time should be spent with those most important to us.
Of the track, Templeman elaborates: “Some days I can’t stop thinking about how short life is and how you only have so much time to spend with the ones you love. Deep, right? Honestly I’ve made so many songs with the titles ‘Forever Isn’t Long Enough’ but this one felt the most meaningful.” Whilst he’s only 17, Forever Isn’t Long Enough gives the singer a platform to share his thoughts, “I’m still way too young to give anyone life advice but this track to me is about how I’ve noticed that the further away you are from your memories, the closer they are to your heart.”
The song is accompanied by a colourful music video, harmoniously representing the bright soundscape of the track. Directed by Thomas Davis, Templeman explains: “I’ve always wanted to make a really colourful video and this hit the spot. Thomas and crew did a wicked job of capturing how no matter what age you are, you just gotta have a bit of fun! That’s really what the song is about.”
Known for his raucous and energetic live shows, the singer performed his first London headline show to a sold-out crows at COLOURS in Hoxton earlier this year. Last year, the singer played a triumphant Radio 1 Introducing Set at Reading and Leeds festival, proving his commanding abilities as a performer.
