BEABADOOBEE returns with new single, Care

Christian Melanie Lee
Indisputably one of the most exciting breakthrough artists of the past year, Beabadoobee today shares her brand new single Care, her first since her BRITs 2020 Rising Star Award nomination and BBC Sound Of nod and the first track from forthcoming debut album Fake It Flowers.

Beneath Cares irresistible melodies, Bea confronts her past and finds catharsis in yells of I dont want your sympathy I guess Ive had it rough, but you dont really care!. Carewas premiered as Annie Macs Hottest Record last night on BBC Radio 1 followed by the premiere of the accompanying video directed by longterm collaborators bedroom under lockdown.

On the track and video, Bea says:

"This song has end of 90s movie vibes, like you're driving down a highway. It is pretty much me being angry at society, or people around me who I just don't think know me and don't care. I don't want you to feel fucking sorry for me. I just want you to understand what I've been through.

I never expected to be making the first video from my album during a pandemic! I was so lucky to be locked down with the bedroom guys, it feels like its turned out as one of the most personal, real videos Ive made. Im so excited to share it!

Earlier this year Bea took to the road on a UK arena tour with labelmates The 1975, including two sold out shows at Londons O2 arena. The end of 2019 also saw her tour the US with Clairo, headline the sold out Dirty Hit Tour and release her acclaimed third EP Space Cadet, the follow up 2018s Dirty Hit debut Patched Up and her stardom cementing Loveworm. Caresees Bea confidently stepping forward into her most exciting new chapter yet.

Born in the Philippines and raised in London, Bea Kristi began recording music as Beabadoobee in 2017. At just 20 years old, Beabadoobee has built her huge, dedicated Gen-Z fan base with her flawless output of confessional bedroom pop songs and DIY aesthetic. Her first track, Coffeegathered hundreds of thousands of streams in a matter of days, through a fan-uploaded video, and has since taken on new life as a sample in Powfus TikTok and worldwide chart-dominating hit.
