Earlier today, young talent Billie Eilish announced her debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? The project, which features some truly awesome cover artwork, is set to drop on March 29th via Darkroom/Interscope. Now, Eilish has dropped off the album’s lead single, which seems to expand on the horror-inspired aesthetic. Dark and brooding in nature, Eilish navigates the percussion production with a songwriter’s ear, a testament to her growing potential. At seventeen, she has already covered impressive ground, and the future is at her feet.
Backed by haunting visuals, the minimalist track finds a black-eyed Billie staring deadpan from beneath a bed, the signature stomping ground for creatures of the night. Vocally, she knows when to pull back, and thankfully her producers mirror her example; it’s far too easy for “pop” music to deviate into typical commercial fare, though Billie appears grounded by a sense of vision. Look for her to do big things in her field, while perhaps crossing a few genre barriers in the process.
Say it, spit it out, what is it exactly
You’re payin’? Is the amount cleanin’ you out, am I satisfactory?
Today, I’m thinkin’ about the things that are deadly
The way I’m drinkin’ you down
Like I wanna drown, like I wanna end me
