Beabadoobee has announced details of her third album, This is How Tomorrow Moves which will land on 16 August.  The album will be released via Dirty Hit and features the lead single Take A Bite which she has now shared.

This Is How Tomorrow Moves follows Beabadoobee’s huge albums Fake It Flowers (2020) and Beatopia (2022) which both hit the Top 10 of the UK charts.

The new album promises to find Beabadoobee exploring vulnerability in her storytelling and relationship with herself.

The album is produced by Rick Rubin and long term collaborator and bandmate Jacob Bugden and was recorded at Shangri-La Studio in Malibu.

Speaking about the album Beabadoobee said, “I love this album.  I feel like it’s helped me so much more than anything else has in navigating this new era, this new understanding of where I’m at. I guess it’s about becoming a woman.

“I think I’m more aware of my actions in these songs.  In my previous records, I would consistently sing about my reaction towards other people’s doings, like a blame game. But in this record, it’s accepting that there’s an inevitability of my fault in there too. Whether it’s childhood trauma or relationship issues, it takes two to tango in everything.”

Beabadoobee’s new single Take A Bite is accompanied by a video from director Jake Erland.  The track features guitars, piano and soft vocals as Beabadoobee contemplates a desire for chaos and the self-awareness of bringing past negative cycles into something new, but still indulging in them anyway.  As Beabadoobee explains, “It’s me feeling introspective about my thoughts and my unhealthy way of living. It’s finding comfort in a familiar place – finding comfort in chaos because that’s what I know. So I bring it into every aspect of my life, especially with relationships. And it’s just tapping into this part of my brain where I just jump straight to the most negative, most chaotic thoughts ever known to man and make that into my reality.”

Over the summer Beabadoobee will headline the New Music Stage at BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend and also headline BBC Radio 1 Stage at Reading and Leeds Festivals as well as performing at All Points East Festival.
