Temples unveil new single 'Afterlife'

With their eagerly-awaited new album set to land next month, Temples have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Afterlife' was produced by labelmate Sean Ono Lennon and mixed by GRAMMY award-winner Dave Fridmann, and follows on from the previously unveiled tracks 'Cicada' and 'Gamma Rays' in previewing their new LP 'Exotico', which is due out on the 14th April via ATO Records.

Speaking about the new offering, Temples’ Thomas Walmsley said, “As we were putting the tracklist together we envisioned a jet or spaceship arriving on the island and then some sort of journey across this imagined place. By the second half of the record we’re moving into twilight, and ‘Afterlife’ is definitely one of the evening tracks.”

While lead singer/guitarist James Bagshaw added, “‘Afterlife’ reflects on long distance relationships and how love and isolation often can find themselves next to one another. You might feel lonely but you're never alone. Seeing a light in the distance gives you the hope to know you’ll meet again.”
