Alice Jemima is back with new single, Icarus!
After a two year studio break writing new material , the undeniably talented Alice Jemima has just revealed a brand new single ‘Icarus’ which she co-wrote with Sophie Ellis Bextor and producer Simon Byrt.
Alice’s new single ‘Icarus’ is the first single to be released from her much anticipated second album to be released later this year. ‘Icarus’ spearheads a more upbeat pop-infused return for Alice but her trademark sultry vocals and unique production style is still very much evident. In her own words ‘Icarus a song based on a story from Greek Mythology – in which Icarus flies too close to the sun, his wings catch fire and he drowns in the sea. In the song the plea is for the relationship to reach the heights of being in love, but without the fear of falling’ . Stream ‘Icarus’ here.
