Alfie Templeman has shared a new single, Beckham.

Produced by Dan Carey and offering breezy, introspective vocals, the alt-pop track marks the latest preview of the rising London-based multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer's second album, 'Radiosoul', due out on June 7. He said:

"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."

On working alongside Carey, Templeman added: "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. There’s this insane instrument during the build up called the ‘Swarmatron’ which takes eight 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."

The singer previously teased the follow-up to 2022's 'Mellow Moon' with its title track, Hello Lonely and Eyes Wide Shut. 

The 21-year-old will celebrate 'Radiosoul' with a series of record store dates around its release, including stops at Bedford's Esquires, Pryzm in Kingston, Rough Trade in Bristol, Nottingham and Liverpool, Rough Trade East in London and Assai Records in Glasgow. Head here for details.

He'll also play BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend in Luton this weekend and Live At Leeds: In The City in November.
