Speaking about Three Hearts, Alex explained, "The new record is very much an album of thanksgiving; of gratitude that things have worked out pretty sweetly for me." He continued, "the lyrics aren’t far-out, or material-centric; they’re just about living. It’s so boring writing about disastrous things all the time; it’s nice to write about something that’s just really good."

Alex is no stranger to the Official Charts, with his single, Too Close, hitting Number 4 on the Official Singles Chart back in 2012. The singer also featured on Rudimental’s Not Giving In, alongside John Newman (Number 14), and Sub FocusEndorphins (Number 10).
