Alfie Templeman unveils new single, "Beckham"

London-based multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Alfie Templeman has released new single "Beckham", which is taken from his forthcoming second album, Radiosoul.

“The chorus of this song is the list of places I was looking to move houses to in London. I moved for the first time in my life in the summer of ’23, which was really exciting, but the days counting down to moving out really felt like the realest and most dignifying moments of my life. It felt like a whole new chapter had started," Templeman says.

"Beckham" follows previous singles, "Hello Lonely", "Radiosoul", and "Eyes Wide Shut". The forthcoming album, Radiosoul, follows his 2022 debut album, Mellow Moon.

“Dan is such a dream to make music with, he trusts scatter brains like mine where you have so many ideas knocking at the door begging to get out. Beckham just happened in a few hours, it’s so full of life and energy. I really wanted to build the ending and brew all this dread and panic for it to collapse on itself," Templeman says of his experience working with Dan Carey.

"There’s this insane instrument during the build up called the ‘Swarmatron’ which takes 8 different tones tuned to different pitches and sends them out of unison until we brought them back together before the song collapsed. And we took my voice during the verses and fed them into this sampler that crunches and spits up my words. It’s all crazy stuff, Dan stuff.”

Radiosoul is set for release on 7 June via Chess Club / AWAL, and is available to pre-order now.
