Billie Eilish has written 'whole new song' amid coronavirus lockdown: 'We got some stuff coming'
Billie Eilish is spending her time during the COVID-19 quarantine working on new music and fostering puppies. The songstress shared what she is up to these days with Zane Lowe of Beats 1 on Saturday, May 9 while chatting about the launch of her father-daughter Apple Music show.
In a video uploaded to YouTube, Eilish spoke about hearing the news of the coronavirus outbreak and her first week at Apple Music before expressing that being at home "gives you a different vibe." She said, "I know that everybody, like the beginning of this really got to people." She added, "I didn't really have that experience because I cheated. I rescued two puppies, or fostered two puppies. I was completely distracted."
Apart from spending time with the pups, the singer has been keeping her passion going for music-making. "We've been in the 'stu,' which just means Finneas' basement, basically," she revealed, adding, "We wrote a whole song in its entirety, an entire song, which is kind of rare for us. I really love it. It was like exactly what I needed to say when we wrote it."
“It was like I don’t know. I can’t tell time anymore. But we’ve been doing a lot of stuff. We’re trying to finish this one that I’m not going to say. Yeah, we got some stuff coming.”
Eilish said she misses being on tour and on stage, explaining, "that feeling does not exist anywhere else," but she is trying to stay positive while being isolated at home during the coronavirus pandemic. She expressed, "Honestly, I feel great," She said, "The song I was talking about earlier that we wrote a couple weeks ago that felt so right was... I wish I could sing it for you, but I can't. It was just about, there was this part in it (I needed to say this) which was I know I'm supposed to feel unhappy right now because of this break and because I'm not seeing anybody ... I feel like there's this kind of thing that I feel like is floating around of like you're supposed to be missing people."
Eilish added, "You're supposed to be missing this person and be missing people in general. I kind of have this feeling of like, I miss my really close friends, I miss people, of course I do, but I also at the same time am liking the space. I'm liking that everybody can kind of grow right now. I hope that people are letting themselves grow instead of just reminiscing and wishing they were with other people."
