Beabadoobee has offered some insight into her forthcoming second LP in a new interview, saying that she’s currently finishing up the album along with guitarist Jacob Bugden.

Asked about the new record by Consequence Of Sound, she said: “I think the next record every single song is in a whole completely different world, I’ve never made such different songs in one piece of music before.

“It’s the first time where every single song you just can’t compare it to anything else from the record. There’re some songs where it’s just me and some songs where it’s very heavy. We reference a lot of music we were listening to at the time, Jacob and I.”

Asked about when the record might be released, she said: “Sometime in 2022. Obviously you’ve got to wait a little bit longer, but we’re working on it and we’ve worked really hard on this record, so we’re trying to take our time.”

Beabadoobee’s second album would follow last year’s acclaimed ‘Fake It Flowers’. She also released the ‘Our Extended Play’ EP, which included contributions from The 1975‘s Matty Healy and George Daniel.

In the interview, Beabadoobee also discussed what music and culture she was influenced by during lockdown. “I was getting really into the period of 2006 and all the music that was coming out then like Stars, Stereolab… there’s so many that I can’t really think of right now.

“I’ve been getting really into computerized sounds but mixed with great rock music. I think that kind of gives a hint of what you’re going to expect next.”

Beabadoobee is currently in the thick of a lengthy US tour, which will see her joined by Dirty Hit labelmates BLACKSTARKIDS.
