Beabadoobee has announced a new EP Our Extended Play, which has been co-written with Matty Healy and George Daniel of The 1975. Ahead of the release, she’s also put out a music video for its first single Last Day On Earth.

Beabadoobee said of the release: “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. 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.

“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 on a farm. 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.”

Alongside the release, Beabadoobee is planning a run of headline shows across the UK and Ireland, beginning in September.
