Filipino-British artist beabadoobee has announced her debut album, Fake it Flowers, due later this year via Dirty Hit, home to artists such as Rina Sawayama, 404 Guild, the 1975, and more . The 20-year-old singer-songwrtier – real name Bea Kristi – has also shared the first taste from the new project, a driving indie pop tune titled ‘Care’. Below, check out the music video for the song, as well as the single’s artwork.
“This song has end-of-a-’90s movie vibes, like you’re driving down a highway,” Kristi said in a press release. “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!”
The new album follows last year’s Space Cadet EP, which contained the song ‘I Wish I Was Stephen Malkmus’, a tribute to the titular Pavement frontman.
