Just like all of us, Beabadobee picked up a few hobbies while quarantining, like baking and editing videos—but for the most part, she was busy working on her album and writing a song with The 1975’s Matty Healy. In an exclusive interview with Candy, the "Coffee" singer delves deeper into how the pandemic has affected her music

According to her, “Last Day on Earth” was tricky to write because it's usually hard for her to open up and collaborate with people when it comes to her music. But, she knew that “as an artist,” it was really important for her to “grow and experiment.” It also helped that she was good friends with Matty; they have similar tastes in music, and a similar vision of where they wanted to take their track. They co-wrote parts of it in London and lived together in Oxford to finish it.

Beabadobee also mentions that the lockdown “helped her organize her feelings” after the pressure she felt from the viral “Coffee” remix and when her debut album was released. Now, we can look forward to her upcoming songs as she says that the ones she’s currently writing still have her signature sound, but “with a more mature point of view.”
