Billie Eilish drops new single 'My Future' with beautiful animated music video, fans call it 'pure perfection'
Billie Eilish, the enigmatic and broody princess of pop music, has just dropped a new song and animated music video for her latest track, 'My Future', and fans can't get enough of it, with many claiming to already listening to the song on loop. This is the first new release from Eilish since she dropped the videos for 'Not My Responsibility' and 'ilomilo' a couple of months ago, and her first new song since she released her James Bond theme song 'No Time To Die' in February this year.
Many fans were also declaring that they had missed the singer's gorgeous voice and online presence, so this number will definitely help fill the void. The new track, 'My Future', is just under four minutes long and is a soft, tranquil slow-moving lullaby before morphing into an upbeat groove two minutes into the song. As usual, Eilish and her brother Finneas O'Connell co-wrote the song together, with the latter taking care of production duties. You can check it out here below:
In the song, Eilish croons about becoming older, wiser and learning more about herself as she embraces her ever-continuing growth in her own time and space. "I'm just a mirror / You check your complexion / To find your reflection's all alone." Later on, she declares, "I'm in love / With my future / Can't wait to meet her / And I, I'm in love / But not with anybody else / Just wanna get to know myself."
She also seems to be touching on her romantic life when she sings, "I know supposedly I'm lonely now / Know I'm supposed to be unhappy / Without someone / But aren't I someone?" and also admits, "I'd like to be your answer / 'Cause you're so handsome / But I know better / Than to drive you home / 'Cause you'd invite me in / And I'd be yours again."
With these lyrics, Eilish seems to be acknowledging that the best part of love is finding love and acceptance in one's own self, since that's where life truly begins to blossom, and love radiates outward from the core of one's own being. Speaking about the song on release day, Eilish revealed, "We wrote this at the very beginning of quarantine," meaning she had been polishing the glistening tune for a while.
The singer also admitted, "It's a song that's really, really personal and special to me. When we wrote this song, it was exactly where my head was at — hopeful, excited, and a crazy 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."
Fans were certainly jubilant on hearing the amazing new track, with one declaring it was "pure perfection."
