Billie Eilish returned with her new single “My Future” on Thursday — which is also her brother/collaborator Finneas’ 23rd birthday.
The song follows “No Time to Die,” the title track for a not-yet-unreleased James Bond film. Its corresponding animated video was created by Australian artist Andrew Onorato.
“We wrote this at the very beginning of quarantine,” Eilish said in an email to fans on release day. “It’s a song that’s really, really personal and special to me. When we wrote this song, it was exactly where my head was at — hopeful, excited and a crazy amount of self-reflection and self-growth. But recently it has also taken on a lot of new meaning in the context of what’s happening in the world now. I hope you can all find meaning in it for yourselves.”
Eilish released her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? via Darkroom/Interscope last year. An emo tour de force in the bedroom pop sector, it eventually became the best-performing album of 2019 and spawned hit single “Bad Guy,” now six-times platinum. She won five Grammy Awards this January, sweeping the Big Four categories (Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist) and taking the Best Pop Vocal Album category as well. O’Connell took home the Producer of the Year and Best Engineered Album trophies on his own.
Following the Grammys, Eilish released “No Time to Die,” the theme song for the latest installment of the James Bond film franchise. She performed the song with Johnny Marr at the Brit Awards before the film’s April release was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. In March, Eilish launched a short arena tour that was soon cut short by the pandemic, as well.
As MTV aptly wrote on Eilish’s Instagram post teasing “My Future”: “At least I’m working from home so nobody will see me cry.”
