Beabadoobee has returned with a new single, ‘Last Day On Earth’.

Her first new music since the release of debut album ‘Fake It Fires’, it’s taken from a forthcoming EP ‘Our Extended Play’, which was written and produced with labelmates Matty Healy and George Daniel of The 1975.

“’Last Day On Earth’ is about all the things I would have done had I known we were going into a lockdown and the world was going to change the way it has,” Bea explains. “It was written shortly after the first main lockdown and lyrically it’s me reflecting on how it would feel if we all knew ahead of time what was going to happen. All the things I would have done if I knew it was the last day of our old normality. I wrote and recorded the EP on a farm with Matty and George from The 1975 in the countryside. It was really nice being able to create together, my first time writing and recording on a farm. I wanted to experiment on the sounds and sonics even more and the EP to me has a feeling of togetherness to it… how we’re all in this joined as one”.

‘Last Day On Earth’ comes alongside a video, directed by Arnaud Bresson of Division Paris (M.I.A, Rosalia, ASAP Rocky). You can check it out below.
