‘bellyache’ appeared on Eilish’s debut EP ‘Don’t Smile At Me’, which was released ahead of her acclaimed debut album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’
Earlier this month, the star admitted that she had serious doubts over her first LP. “I didn’t want the world to be able to tell me how they feel about this thing I love,” she explained.
Meanwhile, Eilish has also recently been covered by Machine Gun Kelly. The rapper gave a soulful spin to her track ‘Ocean Eyes’.
In other news, Billie Eilish has joined many other musicians by hitting out at “unbelievable” anti-abortion laws. “It makes my ears fucking steam out of my head,” said the singer.
Sigrid and Billie Eilish are both due to perform at Glastonbury 2019 next month, joining the likes of The Cure, The Killers, Stormzy, and Miley Cyrus down on Worthy Farm.
