NEWS: Beabadoobee returns with new single ‘Glue Song’ ahead of European and US headline tour and Taylor Swift supports

Gen Z icon, Beabadoobee has returned with latest single, ‘Glue Song’. After inviting listeners into her  lucid dream in her spellbinding album, Beatopia, ‘Glue Song’ is her first new music since 2022. The unreleased track has fast become an online fan favourite after being teased via her social media and in recent live performances, including her NPR Tiny Desk Concert

Renowned for her ability to craft touching, intimate love songs, ‘Glue Song’ was written on the road while touring across Asia and Australia last year, and is reminiscent of beabadoobee’s more acoustic early work, elevated by a lush string section. Directed by Jacob Erland and Bea Kristi Laus herself, the video for ‘Glue Song’ was filmed in Bea’s hometown of Iloilo in the Philippines. Bea left Ilolio aged three and was raised in London. Watch here:

With an apt Valentine’s Day release, Bea said, “I wrote a lot of this song while on tour across Australia and Asia in the back of cars and 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 with my writing 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 long time and feeling love.

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

‘Glue Song’ comes ahead of Bea’s March headline European tour and shows across the US, both headline and supporting Taylor Swift on her forthcoming ‘The Eras’ stadium tour.

Beabadoobee recently played an intimate show at London’s Lafayette for a BRITS Week for War Child show during Independent Venue Week for which she is an ambassador.
