Beabadoobee has given a glimpse of their upcoming second album, explaining that “each song is in a totally different world”.
The singer-songwriter released her first studio work, “Fake It Flowers,” in October 2020. She followed it up with this year’s EP “Our Extended Play,” which featured contributions from The 1975’s Matty Healy and George Daniel.
During a new interview with Consequence Of Sound, Bea explained that she is currently “wrapping up” her next full album with guitarist Jacob Bugden, saying it will arrive “sometime in 2022.”
“I think the next album each song is in a completely different world, I have never done such different songs in a piece of music before,” he told the outlet.
“It is the first time that each song cannot be compared with any other on the album. There are some songs in which it is only me and others in which there is a lot of weight. We refer to a lot of music we were listening to at that time, Jacob and I “.
Bea added: “Obviously we have to wait a bit longer, but we are working on it and we have worked very hard on this album so we are trying to take our time.”
Beabadoobee has performed at a number of festivals this summer – including Reading & Leeds, Latitude and Boardmasters – and is poised to return to the circuit next year, with appearances scheduled on TRNSMT, Primavera Sound, Mad Cool and others.
“We missed a great year of festivals,” he said. to CoS. “It’s going to be fun playing different countries and playing festivals, so it’s going to be exciting.”
In a four-star review, NME described ‘Our Extended Play’ as “a rewarding project for both the listeners and, it seems, the artists involved.”
“Our ‘Extended Play’ is not a big statement, but if the lockdown and the last year have taught us anything, it is to embrace and appreciate small victories as and when they present themselves.”
