Amidst her U.S. tour opening for Halsey, critically acclaimed icon beabadoobee has released a new single, “Lovesong.” The track is taken from her upcoming sophomore album Beatopia (pronounced Bay-A-Toe-Pee-Uh), out July 15 via Dirty Hit.
“Lovesong” is 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. “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.
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.
Marking beabadoobee’s biggest year yet, she will also be embarking on a run of headline dates in the UK this October, culminating in a huge show at London’s legendary Brixton Academy, and will appear at festival shows worldwide including Glastonbury, Primavera Sound, Summer Sonic, Mad Cool, Rock En Seine, Reading & Leeds, TRNSMT, and more.
