The pair have collaborated before

Billie Eilish has unveiled a new version of her music video for ‘you should see me in a crown’.

The 17-year-old star has collaborated with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami for a visually arresting animated video. The pair worked together previously for a GARAGE magazine project, Highsnobiety reports.

The anime clip features Eilish’s BLOHSH character and clothing as well as Murakami’s signature Flowers.


Murakami said of the collaboration in a statement: “Eight months from start to finish, I sprinted throughout the production process with my animation team striving to realise Billie’s vision in an unprecedented way.”

Eilish, meanwhile, described Murakami as an “incredible visionary”, adding that it was, “such an honour to collaborate with him and have our brains and our worlds collide for this video.”

Fans can watch the full ‘you should see me in a crown’ animation on Apple Music.

Billie Eilish performs on stage at Fabrique on February 21, 2019 in Milan, Italy.

In other news, Eilish has addressed reported controversy over her latest song ‘Wish You Were Gay’.


The ‘Bury A Friend’ singer said that the song’s title and meaning had been misinterpreted and was meant to be a joke.

“The whole idea of the song is, it’s kind of a joke. It’s kind of like, ‘I’m an ass and you don’t love me.’ And you don’t love me because you don’t love me and that’s the only reason and I wish you didn’t love me because you didn’t love girls,” she told PopBuzz.

Eilish’s debut album, ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ is slated for release on March 29.
