Beabadoobee explores her artistic growth with new Our Extended Play EP, 'Cologne' music video

Beabadoobee is here to deliver some sexy love music.

On Thursday (06/24), the Filipino-British singer-songwriter dropped her latest EP, Our Extended Play via Dirty Hit. The 4-track offering was collaborative effort between Beabadoobee and co-writers and producers Matty Healy and George Daniel of The 1975.

Alongside the release of Our Extended Play, Beabadoobee also unveiled the official music video for her new single 'Cologne', a self-proclaimed "sexy love song", where she digs deep into contradictory and complex feelings of insecurity, self-confidence, and the strength to break away from seeking validation of self-worth in others.

In a statement, Beabadoobee shares, “Making the music video for 'Cologne' was so much fun, I worked with The Rest who I knew from their work with Slowthai. We wanted to make an action movie with a load of my friends so that's what we did!” 

The story behind Our Extended Play starts in the Oxfordshire countryside during the early days of lockdown due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. As a follow up to her 2020 debut album Fake It Flowers, Beabadoobee offers a look into her artistic growth and personal discovery, while letting listeners reflect on how everyone's path is different but are linked together in this journey as one.

“I didn’t expect any of this to happen”: Beabadoobee talks being viral, her rise to fame, and debut album, Fake It Flowers

“This EP was made in a really collaborative way during a time where it was really difficult to do that and I feel so lucky to have gotten to make it with my band and Matty and George," she says. "I hope it can bring people together in some way, that's really what these songs are about, that feeling of togetherness that's been missing a lot in the last year. It feels like a bridge to what's coming next too."

Beabadoobee has also announced her 14-stop debut headlining tour across the UK and Ireland this coming September and October. She is also scheduled to take off with a North American headlining tour, happening this November and December with support from Christian Leave and BLACKSTARKIDS.
