‘This year has been a huge roller coaster for me ,’ Alexander says. ‘ The journey as an independent artist is so much of a hustle, and to be able to finally put out this body of work is incredibly rewarding and exciting. I’ve poured so much emotion into this EP. It’s turned into such a beautiful snapshot of this time in my life, and I can’t wait for my fans to hear these stories. ‘
Co-written by Alexander, ‘he never will’ builds upon what Alexander does best and embraces the big, bold pop of his influences. The track blends anthemic drums with his signature soaring vocals, becoming yet another heartbreaking hit in his discography.
‘he never will’ is the first song I’ve written from the third person, and it’s about a friend who’s in a relationship you know isn’t going to be good for them in the end,’ Alexander explains. ‘There comes a point, as their friend, when you have to decide how honest you’re going to be. This song is about seizing that moment, helping a friend realise their worth and ultimately not letting them get taken for granted.’
