Beabadoobee shares her new single ‘10:36’, lifted from her forthcoming second studio album Beatopia (pronounced Bay-A-Toe-Pee-Uh), out 15th July on Dirty Hit. ‘10:36’ unpacks Bea’s personal relationships with the people in her life, and how she depends on human contact to get to sleep: “You’re just a warm body to hold / at night when I’m feeling all alone”, she sings.
“‘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. It’s basically about how I have this weird dependency on human contact to sleep”
Alongside singles ‘Talk’, ‘See You Soon’ and ‘Lovesong’, ‘10:36’ is another taste of Beabadoobee’s thrillingly diverse and experimental second album Beatopia, which is available to preorder now. 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. 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.
Beabadoobee is currently poised to embark upon a run of worldwide festival shows including Glastonbury, Governor’s Ball, Summer Sonic, Mad Cool, Rock En Seine, TRNSMT and more. She’s just wrapped a support tour with Halsey as main support at arenas across the US, and will shortly be joining Bleachers out in the States too. Following this, Beabadoobee will play a headline tour of the UK this October, culminating in a huge show at London’s legendary Brixton Academy, tickets are on sale now from beabadoobee.com.
