Among indie/rock circles, singer/songwriter beabadoobee has been a “rising star” for a few years now, several successful EPs and inescapable buzz earning her significant attention.

On Tuesday, beabadoobee announced her first full-length album, Fake It Flowers, which will be released later this year via Dirty Hit. Along with the album news came the premiere of a new single called “Care,” which matches shimmery guitars with a memorable hook and an overall vibe that is nostalgic of 1990s rock:


Said beabadoobee (Bea Kristi) of “Care” in a statement:

“This song has end-of-a-90s movie vibes, like you’re driving down a highway. It is pretty much me being angry at society, or people around me who I just don’t think know me and don’t care. I don’t want you to feel fucking sorry for me. I just want you to understand what I’ve been through. I never expected to be making the first video from my album during a pandemic! I was so lucky to be locked down with the bedroom guys, it feels like it turned out as one of the most personal, real videos I’ve made. I’m so excited to share it!”

beabadoobee, who was born in the Philippines before moving to London with her family when she was young, first earned major attention with the song “Coffee,” premiered in 2017.

She released two EPs in 2019, Loveworm and Space Cadet, the latter of which featured “She Plays Bass,” a song that received heavy airplay on SiriusXM:

The buzz grew as beabadoobie opened arena shows for her Dirty Hit label mates The 1975, and with with “Care” being released, she’s poised for an even bigger year ahead.

Stay tuned for more.
