Beabadoobee has shared new song 10:36 as a fourth single previewing her much-anticipated second album Beatopia

The London-based singer-songwriter's 'people' say that 10:36 “unpacks Bea’s personal relationships with the people in her life, and how she depends on human contact to get to sleep”

It follows on from the 22-year-old's May release of Lovesong, the April release of See You Soon, and the release, in March, of Talk, with its Papa Roach-influenced video.

Beabadoobee says: “10:36 was written after [the singer's 2020 debut album] Fake It Flowers and just before [2021 EP] Our Extended Play, and I had envisioned it to be on that EP, but I was just sitting on that riff for ages and then I properly made a demo during lockdown. It was called ’10:36′ because that was the time I finished writing it. It’s basically about how I have this weird dependency on human contact to sleep.”

Listen to the single below:

Beatopia is due on July 15 via Dirty Hit, and is described as a 'fantastical' affair, which was 'formed in the imagination of a seven-year-old beabadoobee and has been carried with her ever since.'
