Here’s the thing: Billie Eilish has been hunkered down at home for months during the COVID-19 lockdown while you guys are out there ignoring the experts’ recommendations to physically distance and wear your mask over both you mouth and nose. So on Thursday (Sept. 17) the singer unloaded on pandemic partiers in an Instagram Story using a filter that distorted her face.
“Funny how I haven’t hugged my best friends in six months and y’all are out here partying,” Eilish said. Pulling back on the filter, Eilish added, “funny.” Billie’s brother and musical partner, Finneas, recently sat down with Australia’s Herald-Sun to talk about their plans for the follow-up to her Grammy-winning 2019 album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
“Billie and I are full steam ahead on her next record, I’m working on my own album too,” he revealed of the recording sessions at his newly-purchased Los Angeles-area home. “I haven’t suffered at all because of my set-up. Billie and I can work one-on-one, and I’m working remotely with other artists who FaceTime me and ask if I want to work on a song.”
And while Eilish and Finneas have released two songs this year, “My Future” and the James Bond theme, “No Time to Die,” he said, “Billie’s album, and my album, they won’t be a bummer COVID record,” he said, promising that the siblings will hold off on releasing their next album’s until we can all be together again.
