Billie Eilish’s New Single ‘Therefore I am’ Is The Talk Of The Town
You'll be listening to it on repeat!
On November 12, Billie surprised us yet again with a new single to listen on repeat. The uptempo pop, dark pop and electro-pop track with hip-hop influences, highlights a disregard carefree mindset towards people’s opinions of her and a swipe at the haters.
Remaining quiet about revealing the connotations of the song, Billie encourages fans to dissect its meaning for themselves. “You know, this song is very, very up for interpretation,” she says. “I’m very curious to see what people get from it and also what they feel when they hear it. I don’t know. But yeah, it’s a little mean. I love it.”
For Eilish, it was fun to create a song that isn’t so serious. Unlike the deeply emotional nature of her last single “my future,” “Therefore I Am” shows a different side to her some may have never seen before. In fact, she thinks this latest single is different from all of her other songs.
If you’ve caught a glimpse of the pairing music video, you might have noticed the unusual location of the ‘set’ with it’s freehandedly filmed narrative. Well, this randomness was all intentional says Eilish, going back to basics, the entire video was shot overnight on an iPhone in Glendale Galleria Mall L.A. Also, you can see her running around this deserted mall swiping snacks, including a pretzel, donut, a drink, fries and Chipotle chips from stores in her path. A complete mood.
Billie was captured in a custom-made outfit by Skoot Apparel twinned with Jordan ‘Why Not?’ x Converse 70 High tops. The outfit combines a beige cardigan decked in red and black graffiti with shorts inscribing “I see dead people”, on the left leg, perhaps referenced from the renowned line in the hybrid thriller drama movie ‘Sixth Sense.’
