NEW MUSIC: ALEX CLARE | THE SAME
After reemerging from a five-year hiatus last year to release his long-awaited comeback single "Why Don’t Ya," Alex Clare kicks off his 2022 to unveil the euphoric new offering "The Same." Reestablishing himself as a bold and soaring name on the new music circuit, ‘The Same’ looks to continue his unstoppable reputation as he delivers another rousing and captivating new offering. With its soaring production providing the perfect backdrop to Clare’s instantly distinguishable voice, his return has now been given another heady dose of glittering alt-pop power. Speaking about the new release, he said, “I wrote the song with an old friend who I hadn’t seen since we were at school. It got me thinking about how we change over the years, but parts of ourselves we may not like still affect our present." Clare has been writing and recording his new music since Covid swept the world, working with copper-bottomed hit writers like Jamie Hartman (Rag’n’Bone Man, Celeste, Lewis Capaldi). His debut album, "The Lateness of the Hour," was released in the UK on 11 July 2011 on Island Records and was produced by Mike Spencer and Major Lazer. His biggest hit from the album, "Too Close," peaked at number 4 on the UK Singles Chart and number 7 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The song was nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Single at the 2013 Brit Awards.
