beabadoobee is back with new music and she's kicking things off with her simply wonderful new single "Last Day On Earth."
The song is the first preview of her upcoming Our Extended Play EP, which is out this summer via Dirty Hit. And like the rest of the EP, the new track was co-written and produced by The 1975's Matty Healy and George Daniel, created early during the lockdown in the English countryside.
"'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."
She continues: "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.”
