Billie Eilish Reveals Another Clue About Upcoming Album With "When The Party's Over"
Billie Eilish continues to tease her debut album release with her latest single, "When The Party's Over."
In the song, the 16-year-old leaves behind her electro, R&B beats for a duet with a piano.
The song ultimately has a melancholy vibe that you feel even more when listening to Eilish's lyrics: "Don't you know too much already/ I'll only hurt you if you let me/ Call me friend but keep me closer (Call me back)/ And I'll call you when the party's over."
Eilish told Coup De Main, it's not about being sad, it's about a moment after the party:
"It's not really, 'I'm sad,' you know what I mean? So 'When The Party's Over,' I feel like that's such a sentence. It's like, 'I'll call you when the party's over,' you're on the phone with someone and you can't hear them, they can't hear you, its loud, they're mad at you for some reason. I feel like everybody's had that struggle with someone – somebody on the phone yelling for some reason, and you're just like, 'You know what? F*****g leave me alone."
Back in August, Eilish told the Recording Academy that she was pretty focused on her music. "Lately, it's just been the stuff that I'm creating that I'm really pumped about and just feeling it," she said.
Eilish's debut album is much anticipated, fumed by a billion streams on her EP and a U.S. tour that sold out in 60 seconds. When asked about what fans can expect for her full-length album, Eilish said she doesn't want to be pigeon-holed into as sound.
"And I'm always changing, like, I never want to have a sound. I feel like if somebody thinks I have a sound, don't listen to my music. I don't want that. I don't want to be one thing. I want to be like everything in one, I guess. So, it's sort of just everything that I haven't been yet," she said.
