Billie Eilish has opened up about the making of her new song, ‘everything I wanted’ in a revealing new video. You can watch it below.
The video gives a behind the scenes glimpse of Eilish making the song with her brother Finneas.
In the video, the brother and sister duo can be seen recording the song in the studio and later sharing the song with their mother who cries after hearing it.
Speaking about the process of making the new song, Eilish says, “Finneas came up with, ‘As long as I’m here, no one can hurt you.’ We decided to make it about our relationship and how we help each other and like deal with things together.
“It just completely like paved the way for the rest of the song.”
Last month (October 30), Eilish opened up about how she feels “haunted” by the pressure of recording her second album.
The ‘Bad Guy’ singer discussed recording the follow-up to ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ in a new interview with Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong for a special edition of Rolling Stonemagazine.
“[My next album] haunts me,” said Eilish. “There was a period where I was like, ‘Do I even enjoy music?’ It just felt like so much touring. And I don’t mean the shows. The shows are always my favourite part.”
She continued: “But it was just traveling and being alone all the time, on a cold bus in Europe, horrible food, and when you come back, everyone’s kind of moved on from you. This last tour I went on was the first I’ve ever enjoyed. I feel like I have this amazing thing that now I actually see.”
In a 5 star review of Eilish’s last album, NME wrote: “‘When We All Fall Asleep…’, then, ticks all the boxes for a memorable and game-changing debut album. It’s enjoyable and familiar, but retains Billie’s disruptive streak.
“It’s a brave and resounding first step for an artist with bags of potential and over the next decade, you’ll no doubt see popular music scrabbling to try and replicate what this album does on every level. There’ll always be copycats, as Billie noted on her 2017 song of the same name, but none will be able to reach these heights any time soon.”
