We study tetraquark resonances with lattice QCD potentials computed for two static quarks and two dynamical quarks, the Born-Oppenheimer approximation and the emergent wave method of scattering theory. As a proof of concept we focus on systems with isospin I = 0, but consider different relative angular momenta l of the heavy b quarks. We compute
the phase shifts and search for S and T matrix poles in the second Riemann sheet. We predict a new tetraquark resonance for l =1, decaying into two B mesons, with quantum numbers I(JP) = 0(1-), mass m= 10576 (+4 -4) MeV and decay width Gamma = 112 (+90 -103) MeV.
