beabadoobee has returned with her new single GLUE SONG. Teased via her social media and in recent live performances, including her NPR Tiny Desk Concert, the previously unreleased track has fast become an online fan favourite and is her first new music since the release of her second studio album Beatopia last year.

Beloved for her ability to craft touching, intimate love songs, GLUE SONG was written on the road while touring last year, and is reminiscent of beabadoobee’s more acoustic early work, elevated by a lush string section. The video, directed by Jacob Erland, was filmed in Bea’s home country of the Philippines.

With a timely Valentine’s Day release, Bea shares:

I wrote a lot of this song while on tour across Australia and Asia in the back of cars and whilst traveling. It’s a heartfelt song that means a lot to me, a love song and the first one I’ve written in my new relationship. I usually write these songs that are sad; in the past even when it doesn’t sound sad, looking back the lyrics usually have been. For the first time this is just me being really happy. I’m in a really positive place for the first time in a very long time and feeling love.

We recorded the song with my guitarist and producer Jacob in his house and added trumpets and strings. This song feels really personal, and I went to my home town in Iloilo to film the music video. It’s where I was born so that also added another personal touch to the song.”

2022 was a landmark year for beabadoobee, following the release of her critically acclaimed second studio album Beatopia via Dirty Hit, huge sell out tours in the UK, Australia, Asia and North America, USA TV performances and more.
