The ‘Bad Guy’ pop star appeared on Apple Music’s Beats 1 station this week to discuss her upcoming radio series, Me & Dad Radio.
At one point in the chat, the singer revealed she had been introduced to The Strokes’ sixth LP recently by her brother and collaborator Finneas. “I heard a lot of things about it and I just didn’t think to listen, just because sometimes – even if it’s something I’m interested in – I just won’t really try,” she explained.
“…With The Strokes album, I just turned it on. Finneas played me a song and I thought it was so good and I was like, ‘You know what, let me just bite it and that’s go’. And yesterday I downloaded the whole thing. No, no, two days ago, my bad.”
Eilish went on to say that she “just can’t stop listening” to Julian Casablancas and co’s latest effort. “I’ve been listening to it since then. 18 times a day, I swear.”
Eilish’s Me & Dad Radio show will kick-off tonight (May 8) at 8pm (BST). It follows on from her 2018 Beats 1 venture, Groupies Have Feelings Too.
“My dad and I have had this relationship over the years of sharing music with each other,” Eilish told Lowe. “My dad has shown me some of my favourite songs in the world and I’ve shown him songs that he loves and adores also.”
