Critically acclaimed, award winning Gen Z icon beabadoobee returns today to announce her forthcoming second studio album Beatopia (pronounced Bay-A-Toe-Pee-Uh). Due for release on Friday 15th July via Dirty Hit, Beatopia is a fantastical yet deeply personal world that was formed in the imagination of a 7 year old beabadoobee and has been carried with her ever since. Beatopia is available to preorder now.
She also shares her electrifying new single ‘Talk’ which comes accompanied with a high energy video directed by Alexandra Leese and Luke Casey and featuring 150 of Bea’s biggest fans and her close circle of friends.
Of the track Bea says “I wrote Talk just after my first album, I was obsessed with Tuesday because i thought it was the best night to go out, not too much chaos but just enough to have a good time. Generally its about doing things that aren’t necessarily healthy or great for you but you cant help indulging. its like that unavoidable feeling that you get, you cant get rid of it and you know its bad but you love it really and its whatever, so you do it anyways.”
In addition, Bea has announced her biggest UK headline tour to date for this October, culminating in a huge show at London’s legendary Brixton Academy, tickets are on sale from Friday 1st April from beabadoobee.com, fans can access an exclusive presale by preordering the album. The release of ‘Talk’ kicks off beabadoobee’s biggest and most exciting year to date, with confirmed US support tours with Halsey and Bleachers and festival shows worldwide including Coachella, Glastonbury, Governor’s Ball, Summer Sonic, Mad Cool, Rock En Seine, TRNSMT and more.

Housing Bea's most impressive work to date, Beatopia marks a huge progression, in 14 songs she traverses fuzzy rock, classic singer-songwriter, psychedelia, midwest emo and outright pop whilst remaining undeniably herself throughout.
