Critically acclaimed Gen Z icon beabadoobee has shared her new single, LOVESONG, taken from her forthcoming second album BEATOPIA (pronounced Bay-A-Toe-Pee-Uh) out on 15 July 2022 via Dirty Hit. A self-described “cute love ballad”, Lovesong hails back to Bea’s acoustic origins and is elevated with stirring horns and gentle spaced out piano twinkles.
About the song, Bea explains: “Lovesong is a song that I had written bits for since my second EP. The chorus was already written since Loveworm, I just didn’t have any chords to sing it with, and it’s written in a strange tuning that I forget. And, yeah, it’s just another love song, another sweet love song. It was one of the last I recorded for Beatopia.”

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.
Bea is currently on tour across the US as main support for Halsey on her arena shows throughout May and June. She’ll then play a headline tour of the UK this October, culminating in a huge show at the legendary London Brixton Academy. Beabadoobee is also set to play shows in the US with Bleachers, and festival shows worldwide including Glastonbury, Governor’s Ball, Summer Sonic, Rock En Seine, TRNSMT, Mad Cool and more.
