Gen Z Icon beabadoobee Shares New Single ‘Lovesong’

Critically acclaimed Gen Z icon beabadoobee has shared a new single ‘Lovesong’.  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. Lifted from her forthcoming second studio album Beatopia (pronounced Bay-A-Toe-Pee-Uh), which drops on 15 June via Dirty Hit.

Speaking about ‘Lovesong’ beabadoobe explains writing the song was a bit of a slow burn.

“Lovesong is a song that I had bits for written since my second ever EP. 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 tase of beabadoobee’s thrillingly diverse and experimental second album. Beatopia is a fantastical yet deeply personal word that was formed in the imagination of a 7-year-old beabeadoobee and has been carried with her ever since. Housing Bea’s most impressive work to date, Beatopia marks a huge progression, in 14 songs she traverses fuzzy rock, classic singer-songwriter, psychedelia, midwest emo and outright pop whilst remaining undeniably herself throughout.
