Billie Eilish returned Friday with her latest single and music video, “my future.”
"we wrote this at the very beginning of quarantine. it’s a song that’s really really personal and special to me. 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,” Eilish wrote in an email to her fans today.
Written and recorded in Los Angeles during lockdown, and produced by her brother Finneas, “my future” follows the 18-year-old’s groundbreaking 2019 multi-Grammy Award-winning debut album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” and the 2020 release of her official James Bond song “No Time To Die.”
The beautifully animated official music video accompanying this release was created by Australian artist Andrew Onorato. Watch HERE.
2020 started off with Eilish winning 5 Grammys at the 62nd awards ceremony in January. She claimed Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album. February saw Eilish take the stage with her Finneas to deliver a rousing rendition of The Beatles’ “Yesterday” at the 92nd Oscars. Later that month, she released her internationally hailed, official James Bond theme song “No Time To Die.” March came, and the global pop-sensation was ready to embark on her first sold-out tour, the “Where Do We Go?” world arena trek, only for it to be postponed just days into the North American leg, as the country went into lockdown.
A press release said, “Back home isolating in Los Angeles – with more time and space on her hands – ‘my future’ is the product of an assured young woman, coming into her own, as she contemplates what’s ahead of her, signifying a new chapter for the iconic teen-trailblazer.
‘my future’ is out everywhere now.
