Watch: Alfie Templeman Reveals New Single/Video "3D Feelings"

Bedfordshire indie artist/producer Alfie Templeman has revealed the video for his brand new single "3D Feelings".

Produced with Will Bloomfield and Vaccines’ frontman Justin Young, “3D Feelings” explores self-reflection, emotional attachment and the multitude of feelings in response to that.

Speaking about it, Templeman says: “‘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 [Bloomfield] and I, the opening guitar lick was made up on the spot after we found a really nice chord progression for me to solo over,” Templeman explains. “Justin [Young, Vaccines frontman] then inspired me to write some really cool lyrics for this one, they flow so effortlessly and they’re really fun to sing.”

Franz Ferdinand Announce Greatest Hits LP 'Hits To The Head', Stream "Billy Goodbye"

Scottish indie rockers Franz Ferdinand have announced the release of their 20-track greatest hits collection 'Hits To The Head'.

The follow-up to 2017's Always Ascending

The collection will be out 11 March 2022 via Domino Record Co, and features 18 classic Franz Ferdinand tracks, plus two brand-new tracks "Billy Goodbye" and "Curious", produced by Alex Kapranos, Julian Corrie and Stuart Price (Dua Lipa, Madonna, Pet Shop Boys). Pre-order your copy here.

Talking about the process of picking tracks for the album, lead singer Alex Kapranos said:

It's the same as writing a set-list for a festival: you want to play the songs you know people want to hear. The hits. Bring the hits to the head. The heart. The feet. That means obvious singles, but also songs you know have a special meaning for both band and audience like Outsiders. We also added two new songs, recorded last year: Billy Goodbye and Curious, both co-produced at the last stage with Stuart Price. I have friends who believe you’re somehow not a “real” fan if you own a best of rather than a discography. I disagree. I think of my parents’ record collection as a kid. I loved their compilation LPs. I am so grateful that they had Changes or Rolled Gold. Those LPs were my entrance point. My introduction.
