Critically acclaimed, award-winning Gen Z icon beabadoobee has released her brand-new single and video “Talk” alongside the announcement of her upcoming sophomore studio album Beatopia (pronounced Bay-A-Toe-Pee-Uh), out July 15 via Dirty Hit – 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.

“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,” says Bea on the inspiration for the track. “Generally, it’s about doing things that aren’t necessarily healthy or great for you, but you can’t help indulging. It’s like that unavoidable feeling that you get. You can’t get rid of it, and you know it’s bad, but you love it really, and its whatever, so you do it anyways.”

Kicking off this April with her debut Coachella performances, beabadoobee will be embarking on a U.S. run of select shows that will see her headline major cities including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Diego, and more, before taking the stage as direct support on Halsey’s Love and Power arena tour, performing at The Governors Ball, and joining the east coast leg of Bleachers’ tour which will include a performance at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall.

Also announced today, beabadoobee will be embarking on a run of headline shows in the UK this October, culminating in a huge show at London’s legendary Brixton Academy. The release of “Talk” kicks off beabadoobee’s biggest and most exciting year to date festival shows worldwide including Glastonbury, Primavera Sound, Summer Sonic, Mad Cool, Rock En Seine, Reading & Leeds, TRNSMT and more. See below for full list of tour dates.

Racking up more than 4.6 billion global streams and major critical acclaim, Bea has been on a skyrocketing trajectory over the past few years. Bea’s critically acclaimed 2020 debut album Fake It Flowers established her as a one of music’s most buzzed-about talents, earned her a late-night TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! performing standout hit “Care,” and drew mainstream and tastemaker praise on both sides of the pond. Her most recent EP Our Extended Play, seen as an artistic bridge between Fake It Flowers and her upcoming album Beatopia, appeared on numerous “best of” lists and landed her on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon performing the ‘90s-infused, guitar-driven “Last Day On Earth.”
