LISTEN TO BILLIE'S "MY FUTURE"

Darkroom/Interscope phenom Billie Eilish has released her new single, "My Future." Produced by brother and collaborator FINNEAS, Eilish elaborated to Apple Music about creating the new song and her artistic growth: 

"As much "my future" is a song about personal growth and being content, it's now, more than ever, I listen to it; I'm like, "Wow, this is actually is super relevant to right now.” And our future as a world and as a people and I... It's crazy when you can get to a point in life where hope itself feels hopeless. It feels hopeless to hope for stuff. Should you even be wishing? Should you even be hopeful? It's like, is it even worth it? That's insane, but that's where we are at this point. We can't... We need the music. We need the hope."

On the process of making "my future":

"This was such a satisfying process. It was so, so satisfying. We wrote the song in two days. That's crazy fast for us. I mean, to be honest with you, lately, kind of been like that. It's kind of been... We just going, so it's been great. It's like, this is the most we've ever worked in one period of time. But we record, we wrote it like a month into quarantine probably. And it was pouring rain. We were in this like... Oh, it was such a perfect setting. Then we recorded the vocal in Finneas' studio, which is just in his basement in his house. And I don't know, there was... It actually took a lot... For me, I'm sure you know, I take forever to get a vocal take that I like, and I do different takes.

And this one... I just, I don't know, there was something about this one take that I did, and I was like, "This is the only way that it can be." And then, you know what was funny? It was, we were kind of stuck for like a day. We were like, "What the f-k do we do here? What do we... Where does this go?" And we were actually... This is so crazy. But we were actually like, I was about to leave. I was like, "I don't think we're going to get anything done." We had the song recorded, but we didn't have, we didn't know what to do with it. We popped in the pool. We got out of the pool, and I was literally going to go home. I was like, "Let's just f-k around with it a little more." And we finished the song that night, like finished completely. It was crazy. It was so satisfying."
