beabadoobee fans were thrilled on this lovely June morning by the release of the British indie-pop artist’s newest song, “Coming Home.” The track is the second song the young musician has released from her anticipated third album, This Is How Tomorrow Moves, out on August 16th. Her lead single, “Take A Bite,” has already become a fan favorite, holding onto its title as the most-added track at triple-A radio in the U.S. for the second week in a row.

“Coming Home” incorporates many of beabadoobee's musical staples: the soft plucks of an acoustic guitar accompanied by the smooth rise and fall of her sweet, breathy voice, and a musical break featuring the melodic trill of a muted trumpet. Per her lyrical history, the track is a love song inspired by the artist’s idols, the Beatles, and composed of her nostalgic, understated lyricism. She shares, “I wrote it [“Coming Home”] in a hotel room in LA when I was away from my boyfriend, my loved ones, my two cats. It opens with all the little mundane things like doing the dishes, that I miss because I’m always away. Really, it’s just a cute little love song with a weird, non-existent structure.” 

Produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, This Is How Tomorrow Moves addresses beabadoobee’s younger self, embodying her personal growth and journey towards introspection as well as her artistic evolution as an indie songwriter. Unlike her past albums, Fake It Flowers and Beatopia, her new tracks stray from the actions of others and focus more on her own faults, regrets, and realizations. “I guess it’s about becoming a woman,” she says. The album looks towards the future, with an underlying tone of self-acceptance and a hopeful outlook on the next stages of her life. 

beabadoobee’s music has resonated with young audiences ever since she began writing from her childhood bedroom in London. Her lyrics have been heard around the world, through the release of her first single, “Coffee,” on YouTube, her viral sounds on TikTok, and her opening performances on Taylor Swift's Eras tour in 2023. There is something addictive about her take on the classic love song that makes listeners sob over their own heartbreak or yearn for the kind of love that her lyrics describe. Perhaps beabadoobee’s music is so compelling because her descriptions of grief and longing capture the all-consuming experience of love, of being loved which the younger generation so desperately desires. 

This Is How Tomorrow Moves is out on August 16, however, the track list was released in May, featuring titles such as “Girl Song,” “A Cruel Affair,” and “The Man Who Left Too Soon.” beabadoobee will begin her fall international tour in London on August 18th, and in September, she'll be hitting major cities across the U.S. accompanied by pop duo, Hovvdy. Due to popular demand, second show dates have been added in New York City and Los Angeles.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow, June 6th at 10 a.m. local time at beabadoobee.com
