Beabadoobee and the Icelandic-Chinese artist, composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Laufey have shared their new collaborative single A Night To Remember.

The track marks a collaboration between the friends and mutual admirers and finds them incorporating each other’s music stylings.

Speaking about working with Laufey on A Night To Remember, beabadoobee said, “I’ve been writing with a lot of different rhythms recently, also with strings and nods to more classical sounds. Laufey is a great fit for this sound and we had started hanging out in London, so we got in the studio together to work on music and try ideas with my producer Jacob Bugden. We also hung out in New York on my tour and started becoming closer friends.  We wrote A Night To Remember after deciding we wanted to write something that sounds grand but a bit more sexy lyrically and have fun with that theme.”

Meanwhile Laufey added, “Bea has been one of my favourite musicians for a while so getting to write and sing with her was a dream come true. We both agreed that we wanted to write something a bit sexier for this project and A Night To Remember was born.

“There are so many songs about being rejected as a woman and this song is about being on the other side of the coin – having one great night then walking away. Reclaiming the narrative! This song is a true marriage of my and Bea’s sonic worlds and I can’t wait for the world to dive into the cinematic sound this offers.”

The new song is the latest in a string of releases this year for beabadoobee including the tracks Glue Song and the way things go, along with her live album Live in London.

Following the release of her 2021 Typical of Me EP, Laufey was named Best New Artist in Jazz and Blues at the Icelandic Music Awards. Her 2022 debut album, Everything I Know About Love, reached number one on Billboard’s Alternative New Artist Album chart, and she was the most streamed jazz artist on Spotify that year.  Her new album Bewitched broke the record as the biggest debut for a jazz album on Spotify in history.
