“’How Was Your Day?’ is a track that explores all the relationships I neglected when I was away from home” Bea explains, “I wanted to emphasise the rawness of the lyrics with the song sonically which is why I recorded it on a four-track with all the little mistakes and vocal wobbles included. I wanted the music video to feel nostalgic to me, to include all the people I cared about, it took me back to the time I first started making music.”
Peppered with tenderness and transparency, “How Was Your Day?” is an emotionally charged nod at the softer side of beabadoobee’s influences – which include Elliott Smith, Daniel Johnston and Kimya Dawson of the Moldy Peaches – and was recorded on a four-track cassette recorder in her boyfriend’s garden when her studio was closed towards the beginning of the pandemic. Packed with a longing for reconnection and simpler times, the accompanying nostalgia-tinged music video, which features Bea in grainy, VHS-like, lo-fi quality, was directed by long-term collaborators bedroom and features footage of Bea and her loved ones together over the past few months.
