After several months of teasing and hinting, beabadoobee has just unveiled details of her third album.

The follow-up to 2022’s Beatopia goes by the intriguing name This Is How Tomorrow Moves and is due out on August 16 via Dirty Hit. It was produced by the legendary Rick Rubin alongside Bea’s longtime collaborator and bandmate Jacob Bugden at Malibu’s Shangri-La studio (which was also recently used by Pearl Jam for their new album Dark Matter), and is described by the musician as an album “about becoming a woman”.

“I love this album,” she says of This Is How Tomorrow Moves. “I feel like it’s helped me so much more than anything else has in navigating this new era, this new understanding of where I’m at. I guess it’s about becoming a woman.

“I think I’m more aware of my actions in these songs. In my previous records, I would consistently sing about my reaction towards other people’s doings, like a blame game. But in this record, it’s accepting that there’s an inevitability of my fault in there, too. Whether it’s childhood trauma or relationship issues, it takes two to tango in everything.”

Bea has also released new single Take A Bite, which she says is about “feeling introspective about my thoughts and unhealthy way of living. It’s finding comfort in a familiar place – finding comfort in chaos, because that’s what I know. So I bring it into every aspect of my life, especially with relationships. And it's just tapping into this part of my brain where I just jump straight to the most negative, most chaotic thought ever known to man and make and make that into my reality.”
