Amidst her U.S. tour opening for Halsey, critically acclaimed, award-winning Gen Z icon beabadoobee has released her brand-new song “Lovesong” from her upcoming sophomore album Beatopia (pronounced Bay-A-Toe-Pee-Uh), out July 15 via Dirty Hit. CLICK HERE to listen to “Lovesong,” a dreamy, sweet confession that lives up to its namesake by calling back to Bea’s acoustic origins with stirring horns and gentle piano twinkles. “Lovesong” finally found a home on Beatopia after Bea held on to the chorus for years.
“‘Lovesong’ is a song that I had bits written for since my second ever EP,” says beabadoobee. “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 sweet love song. It was one of the last songs I recorded for Beatopia.”
“Lovesong” follows the recent release of lead single “Talk,” a hazy pop-rock jam which arrived accompanied by a high-energy video featuring 150 of Bea’s biggest fans and her close circle of friends in a blissful state, reflecting the inspiration behind the song. CLICK HERE to watch the video. “Talk” was followed by album track “See You Soon,” a breath of fresh air inspired by the clarity Bea found during a memorable trip on shrooms.
CLICK HERE to pre-order Beatopia, 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. Beatopia houses Bea‘s most impressive work to date and marks a huge progression as she traverses fuzzy rock, classic singer-songwriter, psychedelia, midwest emo, and outright pop, while remaining undeniably herself throughout.
beabadoobee is currently performing as direct support on Halsey’s Love and Power U.S. arena tour and will play two more select headline dates in the U.S. in Richmond, VA and Brooklyn, NY, before performing at U.S. festivals including Newport Folk Festival and Governors Ball. She will also join the east coast leg of Bleachers’ tour which will include a performance at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall. CLICK HERE for tickets.
