The skunk haired enigma, Billie Eilish trots around an abandoned Mall in her new music video for “Therefore I Am.”
The track is a dark bouncy lullaby. Eilish rocks an oversized cardigan and shorts while strolling through the legendary Glendale Galleria mall while singing, “I don’t want press to put your name next to mine/ We’re on different lines so I/ Wanna be nice enough/ They don’t call my bluff/ ‘Cause I hate to find/ Articles, articles, articles/ I’d rather you remain unremarkable/ Got a lot of interviews, interviews, interviews.” The dark pop track with one of her signature throbbing beats and whispery vocals appears to be a reckon with the global stardom Eilish has achieved over the past two years.
The five-time Grammy winner first teased the track, which was co-written and produced by brother Finneas, just days ago, captioning an Instagram post of the single’s artsy cover art, “I’M SO EXCITED FOR THIS ONE” on Monday (Nov. 9). (For his part, her older brother also shared his enthusiasm for the new song on his since-deleted Instagram Story, writing, “Not to toot our own horn but this song is f–king sick.”)
“Therefore I Am” marks Eilish’s first new release since she dropped introspective quarantine anthem “My Future,” which bowed at No. 6 on the Hot 100 back in July. Early last month, she also unveiled the long-awaited music video for “No Time to Die,” her theme song for the upcoming — and continuously delayed — James Bond film of the same name.
Additionally, the teenage superstar recently took her canceled North American tour digital. In late October, she presented Where Do We Go? The Livestream as a virtual concert experience inspired by the arena tour — which was shut down in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
You can stream the track now on Apple Music and Spotify.
