Beabadoobee is currently on tour across the US with Halsey as main support for their arena shows across May and June. Catch her at the 3Olympia Theatre, Dublin on October 4th.
Gen Z icon beabadoobee has released her new single ‘Lovesong’, lifted from her forthcoming second studio album Beatopia - out July 15th on Dirty Hit.
A self described “cute love ballad”, ‘Lovesong’ calls back to Bea’s acoustic origins and elevates the track with stirring horns and gentle spaced out piano twinkles.
"Lovesong is a song that I had bits written for since my second ever EP," beabadoobee explains. "The chorus was actually already written since Loveworm, I just didn't have any chords to sing it with. It's actually written in a really strange tuning that I forget. And yeah, it's just another love song, another sweet love song. It was one of the last songs I recorded for Beatopia."
Alongside singles ‘Talk’ and ‘See You Soon’, ‘Lovesong’ is another taste of Beabadoobee’s thrillingly diverse and experimental second album. Beatopia is a fantastical yet deeply personal world that was formed in the imagination of a 7-year-old beabadoobee and has been carried with her ever since.
In 14 songs, she traverses fuzzy rock, classic singer-songwriter, psychedelia, midwest emo and outright pop whilst remaining undeniably herself throughout.
Born in the Philippines and raised in London, Bea Kristi began recording music as beabadoobee in 2017. At just 21 years old, beabadoobee already has a debut album and five sonically diverse EPs under her belt, while also receiving BRIT Award and BBC Sound Of nominations. She has accumulated 4.6 billion streams worldwide and has a 3 million social reach, with a dedicated fan base.
beabadoobee’s highly anticipated debut album Fake It Flowers was released in 2020 to widespread critical acclaim. The LP debuted in the top 10 of the UK charts, allowing Kristi to tour across the world, supporting the likes of The 1975 and Clairo.
The singer-songwriter and guitarist will play a headline tour of the UK and Ireland this October, culminating in a huge show at London’s legendary Brixton Academy, tickets are on sale now from beabadoobee.com.
Beabadoobee is also set to play shows out in the US with Bleachers and festival shows worldwide including Glastonbury, Governor’s Ball, Summer Sonic, Mad Cool, Rock En Seine, TRNSMT and more. The London-raised act will play the 3Olympia Theatre, Dublin on October 4th 2022.
