Rising singer-songwriter Beabadoobee has released an apologetic new song called “Sorry.”
On the poignant track, Beabadoobee—whose real name is Bea Kristi Laus—sings about the guilt of causing emotional pain on a friend. “And it hurts me / That you could be the one that deserved this, even more / But you stayed in the same dark place that I adore / But you stayed for more / I guess that’s what happens to the best of us,” the Filipino-born British singer confesses on the chorus.
Per a press release, Beabadoobee said that “Sorry” is about “confessing my mistakes in a friendship and watching someone who I love breakdown and fade away as a person.” She added, “It’s the idea of dismissing something because it felt too close to home and a personal reminder to never take for granted what that person could have had.”
The accompanying no-frills video captures a dejected Beabadoobee performing the song as she roams through a dark underground tunnel. Towards the end, she makes her way out to a field of vast greenery and flowers, with a magnificent sunset in the backdrop.
“Sorry” follows Beabadoobee’s earlier single, “Care,” which dropped last month. Both songs will feature on her upcoming debut album, Fake it Flowers, due out October 16 on Dirty Hit.
