PRESS HERE to watch the “Last Day On Earth” video visualizing what Bea imagines she would have done if we had known what was ahead of us, directed by Arnaud Bresson of Division Paris (M.I.A, Rosalia, ASAP Rocky). Co-written with and produced by Matty Healy and George Daniel of The 1975, “Last Day On Earth” and Our Extended Play were created during early lockdown in the English countryside and saw Bea collaborating on a diverse collection of new songs. “'Last Day On Earth' is about all the things I would have done had I known we were going into a lockdown and the world was going to change the way it has,” says beabadoobee. “It was written shortly after the first main lockdown and lyrically it’s me reflecting on how it would feel if we all knew ahead of time what was going to happen. All the things I would have done if I knew it was the last day of our old normality. I wrote and recorded the EP on a farm with Matty and George from The 1975 in the countryside. It was really nice being able to create together, my first time writing and recording in that kind of setting. I wanted to experiment on the sounds and sonics even more and the EP to me has a feeling of togetherness to it... how we’re all in this joined as one.” beabadoobee is set to embark on a run of headline shows in the UK and Ireland later this year. The Fake It Flowers tour will kick off in September, taking 14 dates across the country, including a hometown show at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town.
