Baby Queen previews upcoming mixtape with new track "You Shaped Hole"

14 July 2021, 10:04 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Baby Queen has delivered new song "You Shaped Hole" as the fifth preview of her forthcoming mixtape The Yearbook.

New breakup anthem "You Shaped Hole" follows last month's MAY-A collaboration "American Dream", and will appear on The Yearbook alongside earlier outings "Dover Beach", "These Drugs" and "Raw Thoughts".

Baby Queen, real name Bella Latham, says of the new single, "I was super heartbroken when I wrote this song, and my ex was dating this beautiful supermodel after dumping me in Clissold Park in North East London. I went through a bit of a wild phase, as one does, and was doing everything I could possibly do to feel better. At the time I had this image in my mind of a hole inside my body that was shaped exactly like my ex, and it was as if I was trying to fill that hole in any way I could, but the things I was filling it with never reached the corners or made me feel any better, they just cluttered my life."

Latham's upcoming 10-song mixtape The Yearbook will follow last year's Medicine EP.

She says of the project, "It’s important to be able to capture a full range of emotion. I want the listener to feel like they’re on the top of a London bus, travelling through a city they’ve moved to for the very first time, seeing the world through new eyes."

"You Shaped Hole" is out now. Baby Queen's The Yearbook mixtape will be released 3 September, and is available to pre-order now.
