Produced by long-time collaborator Jacknife Lee and written by all four band members, Lee and Coco Morier, Future Lovers was initially recorded in Los Angeles during sessions for the band’s 2019 release, The Professional.
“The pandemic gave us the opportunity to look at some of these songs and give them some new Beaches twists before they were released,” said lead singer Jordan Miller. “You know, we’ve kind of all matured a little being stuck at home for over a year.”
At 11:30 AM EDT today, The Beaches will join fans on YouTube to discuss the EP, followed by the premiere of the music video for lead single "Blow Up." Directed by Alex Smith, the visuals bring the band's sound and personalities to life, as each band member stars in their own vignette, veering quickly towards insanity while the world around them erupts.

Future Lovers highlights the band’s impressive musicianship and song-writing skills, which are complemented, as always, by the killer vocals and whimsically acerbic lyrics that The Beaches are known and loved for. The EP brims with the band’s wit and personality, which is heard loud and clear on each track, from the energetic bop-ready “Blow Up,” anthemic “Let’s Go,” the nostalgic guitar-driven “Bad Behaviour,” the cheeky infatuated synth-track “Slow Mo,” and the heavy and pensively powerful finale, “You Don’t Owe Me Anything.”
Future Lovers is The Beaches’ first set of new songs since their last EP, The Professional, released in 2019. The Professional saw the group continue to evolve as songwriters and musicians, working with renowned producer Garrett “Jacknife” Lee, whose previous collaborations include U2, The Killers, Bloc Party, Snow Patrol, and Taylor Swift. The 2019 EP spawned four hit singles and topped Canada’s Alternative Radio Chart twice with “Want What You Got” and “Lame,” both topping the chart for an impressive six weeks. The band’s highly successful 2020 The Professional Tour travelled across Canada, culminating with three of their 15 sold-out shows at The Danforth, in The Beaches’ hometown of Toronto.
