Beabadoobee just finished a support tour with Halsey at arenas across the US and will shortly be also joining Bleachers in America.
Gen-Z indie star Beabadoobee has dropped the latest single '10:36' from her upcoming album Beatopia.
The singer's second studio album is set to release on July 15 with Dirty Hit following up her hugely popular 2020 debut Fake It Flowers.
Beabadoobee, real name Bea Kristi, revealed the meaning behind this new track's name saying: "'10:36' was written after Fake It Flowers and just before Our Extended Play, and I had envisioned it to be on that EP, but I was just sitting on that riff for ages and then I properly made a demo during lockdown. It was called 10:36 because that was the time I finished writing it.”
The 22-year-old Manila-born musician's popularity skyrocketed through Soundcloud and later TikTok, when the Powfu remix of her single 'Coffee' went viral as 'death bed (coffee for your head)'.
Beatopia is a fantastical yet deeply personal world that was formed in the imagination of a seven-year-old beabadoobee and has been carried with her ever since. Housing her most impressive work to date, the album marks a huge progression. In 14 songs she traverses fuzzy rock, psychedelia, classic singer songwriter, Midwest emo and outright pop whilst remaining undeniably herself throughout.
Beatopia is set to drop ahead of Bea's biggest headline UK and Ireland tour to date. The singer-songwriter will play Dublin's 3Olympia Theatre on October 4 to kick off her tour, and later Belfast.
'10:36' is the fourth single released from Beabadoobee's upcoming album, joining 'Lovesong','See You Soon', and 'Talk'.
