PREMIERE: Nigel Thomas Releases New Music Video For “Alchemy Rose”

The London based singer/songwriter, DJ, actor and former mental health professional has spent the last 18 months writing and recording his sophomore solo album, to be released early next year (date and title TBC).  If you were lucky enough to catch him at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival, he debuted some new tracks to rave reviews.  “Alchemy Rose”, an upbeat Summery Britpop future anthem, is the first single to be released late this Summer. 

As the lead singer and songwriter for indie rock band The Foxes, Nigel enjoyed several UK Indie Chart top ten hits, toured the world and recorded and released an acclaimed album mixed by John Cornfield (Supergrass, Razorlight, Muse) at Sawmills Studios in Cornwall.  After The Foxes disbanded, Nigel took the solo road, and to great success.  Counting among his fans Blur’s Dave Rowntree and Indie mogul Alan McGee, the singer/ songwriter kick-started his solo career with hot debut, “Fever”. He followed the success of “Fever” and released his debut full length album ‘Travelling Man’  (recorded at Tilehouse Studios by Luke Oldfield (Mike’s son) and mastered by John Davis (Led Zeppelin, Lana Del Rey, U2, Kaiser Chiefs) at Metropolis) to critical acclaim in March 2016, enjoying TV and radio support.  Whilst touring the UK and Germany for his debut solo album, Nigel earned numerous compliments in the media. When it comes to song writing, Thomas has never been short of ingenuity. Apart from taking inspiration from musical heroes such as The Kinks or Elliott Smith, his debut album was also massively influenced by the literary work from Bukowski to Borroughs and Palahniuk. 

“Alchemy Rose” sets the tone for the new album, filled with strong songwriting and catchy tunes, this is the perfect follow-up and soon to be on heavy rotation around the country.
