Billie & FINNEAS Discuss Billie’s New Single "my future”…
Billie: “Today’s special because ‘my future’ has been released. I am so excited. We made this song towards the beginning of quarantine. It was raining a lot. I had little puppies around and I was feeling a lot of things and I’ve been very excited to put this one out and I’m ecstatic, I’ve gotta tell you.”
FINNEAS: “I really like this song. I feel like this song is an evolution of you as a songwriter and a good representation of the more optimistic mindset that we have had I think…you oscillate during a period like this between like a pessimistic mindset and a optimistic mindset and I feel like this is the optimistic day.”
Billie: “It’s a real real thing that we should be talking about and thinking about — you know, the future’s exciting man and growth is important.”
Patrick: “I know it’s shocking but I like it… this is really incredibly special and beautiful production and wonderful signing and a great song."
Billie: “I think it shows a lot of growth and I am happy with it.”
Billie Eilish on Childish Gambino & “Bonfire”…
“This is from the album me and FINNEAS found Donald Glover through. Incredible album. The first song I heard ever from him and was actually I think the first song I heard that was like rap…was "Heartbeat" from this album. Everybody knows that Donald Glover is like my favourite…one of my all time favourite creators. He’s exactly everything that I idolise about a creator. He’s every single element of what I think is amazing."
