Ahead of the arrival of his sophomore album ‘Radiosoul’ on 7th June (via Chess Club Records / AWAL Recordings), Alfie Templeman has today shared ‘Hello Lonely’, the latest in a run of groove-laden LP previews.

Despite bouncing along with an irresistible acid-pop strut, lyrically the track “captures those existential thoughts everyone seemed to have during the pandemic - and even post-pandemic - where everyone kinda said ‘So what now?’”

Explaining further, Alfie has commented: “I’ve always had a bit of a dodgy social battery and sometimes struggle with social media and touring as it can require a lot of energy to get on stage 100 times a year and maintain conversation with so many different people. When you have such a different work life compared to home life, I think, silence becomes pretty deafening and very intense. So, ‘Hello Lonely’ is about coping with those big quiet moments and checking in on your own sanity.”
