Billie Eilish and her brother/hitmaking partner Finneas have been on their A-game for over a year, so it almost comes as no surprise that they made her brand new single "My Future" out today (July 30) in just two days.
Eilish chatted with Apple Music's Zane Lowe about how the new song, which splits her dulcet vocals over the ballad-turned-groovy tune, channels her growth as a person, but her growth as an artist is also a salient force to be reckoned with.
"This was such a satisfying process. It was so, so satisfying. We wrote the song in like two days," she said of their "crazy fast" songwriting and recording process, which Eilish notes has been picking up the pace lately. "This is the most we've ever worked in one period of time. But we record, we wrote it like a month into quarantine probably. And it was pouring rain. We were in this like... Oh, it was such a perfect setting. And then we recorded the vocal in Finneas' studio, which is just in his basement in his house.... For me, I'm sure you know, I take f---ing forever to get a vocal take that I like, and I do like a billion takes. And this one... I just, I don't know, there was something about this one take that I did, and I was like, 'This is the only way that it can be.'"
