The quarantine has really inspired our top artists to get their hands on their craft.
Just a week after Taylor Swift surprised the world with her folklore release, Billie Eilish also dropped her latest single, “My Future.” The track came with an animated music video that features a Billie-inspired avatar traversing a dreamy, rainy landscape.
“It’s a song that’s really really personal and special to me,” Eilish told fans in a statement.”
“When we wrote this song, it was exactly where my head was at—hopeful, excited and a craaaazy 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.”
“My Future” sees Billie Eilish taking a journey to self-exploration– confronting her past en route to a promising future. It’s a message clearly expressed by the song, whose atmosphere starts out dark and eerie. Halfway through, the music makes a sudden, sharp turn into a groovy bossa nova as the beats kick in.
This transition is also very well reinforced in the music video. The depressing, gloomy forest in which Billie’s character is plunged begins seeing light. And as the sunlight creeps across the land, everything starts to transform and show vivid colors. The story ends with the forest looking as beautiful and peaceful as ever and with Billie singing, “I’ll see you in a couple years.”
“My Future” is Billie’s latest release since “No Time to Die,” which she launched in February as the official soundtrack of the next Bond film. She also revealed that it was entirely created at home with her brother and producer Finneas. Amazingly, they finished the project in just two days. If this new song will be part of Bilie’s sophomore album, we have yet to find out.
