Los Angeles (USA), Jul 30 . .- Billie Eilish, the absolute winner of the last Grammy Awards, premiered on Thursday the song « My Future », a song composed entirely during confinement and accompanied by a video in which the artist appears represented in cartoons.
« We wrote this at the beginning of the quarantine. It is a song that is really very personal and special to me. (…) But now it has also acquired many new meanings in the context of what is happening in the world. I hope everyone can find a meaning, « the artist wrote in a letter to her followers.
The track, like most of Eilish’s discography, has been produced by his brother Finneas and is the brothers ‘first release since they released earlier this year « No Time To Die, » the soundtrack for James’ upcoming film. Bond that could not be released by the coronavirus.
Unlike other popular songs by Eilish, « My Future » sets aside its more electronic side and opts for a more organic sound that at first seems like a piano ballad and awakens in the middle with rhythms closer to R&B; and a cadence between funk and jazz.
« I am in love with my future, I cannot wait to meet her. I am in love, but not with anyone else. I just want to know myself, » says her handwriting, which reflects a moment of « personal growth, » said the artist.
Able to bring consensus to the public and critics together, Eilish has become one of the most influential artists of the moment, especially after the release of her acclaimed album « When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? ».
In the last Grammy, the singer made history by winning with just 18 years old the four most important categories of these awards: best new artist, album of the year, song of the year and recording of the year.
She was also one of the guest stars of the Oscars, where she performed « Yesterday » by The Beatles during the section « in memoriam », in which tribute was paid to celebrities who recently passed away like Kobe Bryant and Kirk Douglas.
