Beabadoobee spoke to NME in a new interview about taking on a collaboration on their new album ‘Beatopia’.
The Dirty Hit-signed artist released her sophomore album last month, the follow-up to her 2020 debut ‘Fake It Flowers’.
The new album features collaborations with the likes of Matty Healy from 1975, Pink Pantheress and Jack Steadman from Bombay Bicycle Club (under the name Mr Jukes).
Speaking to NME in this week’s edition of Big Read, Beabadoobee, whose real name is Beatrice Kristi Laus, says: “First [de tu carrera] you’re super anal, like: ‘Don’t let anyone touch my music, dammit’. And then you say, ‘You know what? The collaborations are very good. Because, after all, two are better than one.”
Beabadoobee also credited the ‘Our Extended Play’ EP as the moment his perspective on collaboration changed, playfully describing The 1975 frontman Healy, who co-wrote ‘You’re Here That’s The Thing’ and ‘ Pictures Of Us’ from ‘Beatopia’, as “annoying older brother”.
“Matty’s great with lyrics, so he’s helped me a lot with that,” he explained, “and he gives me a lot of advice on singing. who has great advice. of life. I think he has a way of finding a phrase that really hits you.”
Elsewhere, Beabadoobee performed a cover version of The Sundays’ 1990 song “Here’s Where The Story Ends” on SiriusXM.
