Billie Eilish has released her new song “my future” along with its animated music video.
“we wrote this at the very beginning of quarantine. it’s a song that’s really really personal and special to me,” Eilish says about the song. “when we wrote this song, it was exactly where my head was at – hopeful, excited and a craaaazy amount of self reflection and self growth. but recently it has also taken on a lot of new meaning in the context of what’s happening in the world now. i hope you can all find meaning in it for yourselves.”
During an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, she revealed was written in only two days. “This was such a satisfying process. It was so, so satisfying. We wrote the song in like two days. This is the most we’ve ever worked in one period of time. But we record, we wrote it like a month into quarantine probably. And it was pouring rain. We were in this like… Oh, it was such a perfect setting. And then we recorded the vocal in Finneas’ studio, which is just in his basement in his house…. For me, I’m sure you know, I take f—ing forever to get a vocal take that I like, and I do like a billion takes. And this one… I just, I don’t know, there was something about this one take that I did, and I was like, ‘This is the only way that it can be.'”
