beabadoobee Teams Up with Clairo for New Version of “Glue Song”: Stream
The 22-year-old Filipino-British artist first debuted “Glue Song” as a Valentine’s Day release earlier this year, and it quickly became a favorite among her dedicated fanbase due to its bubbly, welcoming warmth. A simple love song with a nostalgic chic, the track allows beabadoobee’s signature style to bloom in full force, showing her knack for cutesy aesthetics and uncomplicated, airy melodies.
On the new version, indie pop icon Clairo lends her croon to the song, elevating it to a new height. When both voices come together for the tune’s second half, the harmonies weave together like a tapestry of love song goodness.
When the song was first released, beabadoobee explained that she wrote it at the onset of a new relationship during a tour across Australia and Asia. “I usually write these songs that are sad,” she said in a statement. “In the past, with my writing, even when it doesn’t sound sad looking back, the lyrics usually have been. For the first time, this is just me being really happy. I’m in a really positive place for the first time in a long time and feeling love.”
beabadoobee has been busy in 2023 — in addition to her new releases, she’s landed a few opening spots for Taylor Swift on the ongoing “Eras Tour,” and will play a few headlining dates herself.
