Rising indie, pop star Beabadoobee (Bea Kristi) has announced the title of her second album Beatopia, (pronounced Bay-A-Toe-Pee-Uh), which will be out on July 15th and is available to preorder now.

Teasing the new album, which follows her 2020 Fake It Flowers release, which debuted in the top 10 UK charts, the singer has shared her first single from the new record, Talk, which she says, “I wrote Talk just after my first album. I was obsessed with Tuesday because I thought it was the best night to go out, not too much chaos but just enough to have a good time. Generally it’s about doing things that aren’t necessarily healthy or great for you but you can’t help indulging. It’s like that unavoidable feeling that you get, you can’t get rid of it and you know it’s bad but you love it really and it’s whatever, so you do it anyway.”

The music video for Talk, directed by Alexandra Leese and Luke Casey, features 150 of Bea’s fans and close friends rocking out with her and her band. (The rock fan in us can’t help but think they may have taken some inspiration from Papa Roach’s Last Resort video…)
