The future looks bright for this one.
You may not have heard of Alex Thompson before, but chances are you probably will soon, as his guy has got a lot to look forward to..
Alex is looked after by the same people who brought Tinie Tempah to the worlds attention. And as if that isn’t exciting enough, Tinie himself has said that if Alex manages to get one independent top 20 hit under hit belt, he’ll jump in Alex’s following track.
Now that is AWESOME.
Alex’s single ‘In Love With Love’ could potentially get him a duet with Tinie Tempah, but only if people like it and buy it. So, without further ado, we think it’s probably a good idea to let you hear the track.
Probably not what you were expecting from this fresh faces 16-year-old, right?
Alex himself had a few things to tell us about his rise to fame and the sound of his track:
'Three years ago I started to work with our in house producer Alex Elliot and song writer J Warner [EMI] developing and absorbing key skills and techniques in the studio working towards what would seem as a bright future getting ready for people to hear Alex Thompson!'
'It's been exciting leading up to this stage, finally preparing my first promo single and it has taken a lot of hard work and effort to build up foundations behind the release. Having experienced performances at festival such as The Wireless and Breaking Out it’s given me a taster of what’s to come in the very near future and its going to be crazy!'
'The single is a mixture of raw reggae with elements of indie and pop. It explains the story of how a someone is in love with the feeling of being loved but not in love with a specific person.'
'I’m really looking forward to be able to work with various artist around the globe including Tinie Tempah and the one and only Pharrel Williams so it looks like this summer is going to be quite a busy one!'
Alex’s debut single ‘In Love With Love’ is out on July 23rd and you better think about picking up a copy if you want to hear Tinie on his next track!
