Billie Eilish traveled down memory lane -- specifically Abbey Road -- to cover The Beatles' "Something" on SiriusXM's Alt Nation channel Thursday (Dec. 3).

She delivered the exclusive radio performance as well as acoustic versions of her own songs, including her latest Billboard Hot 100 No. 2 hit "Therefore I Am," the three-time Grammy-nominated sensation "Everything I Wanted," and her debut single "Ocean Eyes."

Her brother and producer FINNEAS joined her for an interview with SiriusXM’s Jeff Regan about what to expect from the follow-up album to her Billboard 200 No. 1 debut project When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? while joking about its title.

"Everything about every song is very different but somehow cohesive, and I think that was kind of the same with the last album," Eilish said in a preview clip from SiriusXM's Twitter. She also discussed the overwhelming effects of being young in the music industry and how the internet doesn't care about "the undeveloped brain," which Finneas teased should be the name of her sophomore set.

The hitmaking brother-sister duo previously covered The Beatles when performing a stripped-down rendition of "Yesterday" for the in memoriam tribute at the 2020 Oscars back in February. She performed "I Will" by The Beatles on the ukulele, the first song she ever learned to play on the instrument, during her "Carpool Karaoke" session on The Late Late Show With James Corden last year.

Eilish's performance and interview will air on SiriusXM's Alt Nation channel Thursday, Dec. 3 at 5 p.m. ET and PT via SiriusXM radios (channel 36) and on the SiriusXM app. The session will rebroadcast throughout the weekend exclusively on  On Demand on the SiriusXM app.
