Chad Lawson "when the party's over"

Chad Lawson struck a cord with his and Billie Eilish's fans Thursday (Jan. 7) when he covered her song "When the Party's Over" solely on the piano.

It's the first bit of new music from the pianist/composer since he released his album You Finally Knew last September. From a musician's perspective, he explained how enamored he was by Finneas' instrumentation and knew how to strip it down without losing its emotive touch.

"A great song is a great song no matter the genre or instrument," Lawson said in a press statement. "When I first heard this track, I was geeking how Finneas crafted such a unique melody based on his chordal theme; so creative. Add Billie's unabashed vulnerability to the mix and you have the artistic marriage of head and heart. I knew this song would resonate with just a piano."

James Blake recently lent his voice to another piano cover of the song from Eilish's Billboard 200 No. 1 debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? for his 2020 EP Covers.
