"Too Close" (CD Single)
A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "Too Close" is a super-clean single that features no profanity or mature content whatsoever. The lyrics focus on a guy who realizes his romance just isn't right and, rather than string his partner along, makes a clean break. It's a fine choice for younger kids who like electronic music.
What's the story?
\"TOO CLOSE\" is the second single from the debut album The Lateness of the Hour by British singer Alex Clare. Though both the album and single were originally released in 2011, Clare's music only began to gain traction when the track was featured in a 2012 Microsoft TV commercial for Internet Explorer.
