In May 2011, Alex released the third single from the upcoming album. “Treading Water” was written by Clare, Jarrad Rogers, and Francis White. The song didn’t manage to become as popular as its predecessor. It reached the 59th spot on Official German Charts and an unexpectedly low 179th place on UK Single Chart.
In July 2011, Alex Clare presented his 1st studio LP, The Lateness of the Hour. At first, the album didn’t achieve good sales. However, when “Too Close” appeared in the commercial and became a world hit, the LP reached the 8th place in Germany, the 17th spot in the UK, and the 48th position on Billboard 200. The LP earned a gold certification in the UK and Germany.
In November 2012, the third single from Rudimental’s debut album Home came out. Alex Clare worked with the band to record the song. The single topped the UK Dance Chart. It earned high spots on Belgian and Islandic charts. The music video for the song earned a prize at UK Music Video Awards as "Best Dance Video — UK.”
In May 2014, Clare announced the release of his second LP, Three Hearts, and presented the lead single “War Rages On.” The song reached the 53rd spot on the UK Singles Chart. It also appeared in the military drama series Our Girl. The LP came out in August and made it into British, German, and Swiss charts. However, it was much less successful than the debut album.
In 2016, the artist’s debut single "Up All Night" appeared in the sci-fi series Class on BBC Three. At the end of the year, Clare released his next LP, Tail of Lions. The album came out in the USA in 2017. The commercial success of this album didn’t meet the artist’s expectations. However, Clare continues working on new songs and performs live.
