Alfie Templeman has released a new single called ‘3D Feelings’ – watch the music video below.
The song is his first new material since the release of his debut mini-album ‘Forever Isn’t Long Enough’ in May. With it, he’s announced a headline tour for March 2022.
Alfie Templeman explained of the song: “‘3D Feelings’ is about being reminded of your past self in different ways. Whether it’s objects or people, these are all things we feel a deja vu experience from. We get reminded of feelings we once felt through them, and those feelings just hit you and can’t be controlled. It can be a comforting experience, or a painful one, but either way it takes you back immediately to that feeling you once felt and that can be so powerful.
“The song came together so quickly as a fun jam between Will & I, the opening guitar lick was made up on the spot after we found a really nice chord progression for me to solo over. Justin then inspired me to write some really cool lyrics for this one, they flow so effortlessly and they’re really fun to sing.”
Earlier in the summer, the musician was forced to cancel his performances at Latitude and Tramlines festivals after testing positive for COVID-19. The pair of festivals were taking part in the government’s Events Research Programme (ERP) before restrictions on mass gatherings in England had eased.
“Gutted to announce that unfortunately I’m no longer able to play Tramlines or Latitude this week as I’ve recently contracted COVID,” Templeman wrote on Twitter.
“I’m currently recovering in isolation dreaming about the rest of the wonderful gigs that we have in store for you this year!”
The 18-year-old will hope to make up for those lost shows with news of his next tour – see details below.
