Billie Eilish shared a new track called ‘Therefore I Am’ last week. Reviewing the song, NME wrote: “Built upon a sturdy bassline – one that’s less confrontational than anything on her debut album – the song sees her separate herself from the coattail-riders, dismissing them with a string of cutting ripostes. And main refrain is perhaps her catchiest choruses to date.
Eilish gave ‘Therefore I Am’ its live debut at last night’s (November 22) American Music Awards 2020.
