Seemingly popping up in every media publication at present, it was only a matter of time before Beabadoobee cemented her place in a contemporary zeitgeist by releasing her debut album. Set for release via Dirty Hit later this year, Fake It Flowers marks her first new material since receiving a BRITS Rising Star Award nomination. 

Gen Z's burgeoning guitar icon leads the announcement with new single 'Care', a cathartic, buoyant track that crystallised her bedroom-pop sensibilities and uncanny knack of creating confessional yet universal anthems. 

"This song has end of 90s movie vibes, like you're driving down a highway." Bea states, and that it's "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." A real 'fuck you' from a 20-year old artist who seems to have been untarnished by industry influence in her fledging career thus far. 

Citing Pavement as a major influence, Beabadoobee is swiftly becoming the alt-rock champion teenagers have been crying out for.
