Billie Eilish fans will need to exercise patience after her brother and producer FINNEAS revealed she will not release a new album until touring conditions are safe.
“Billie’s album, and my album, they won’t be a bummer COVID record,” FINNEAS told Australian newspaper The Herald Sun. “I have a desperate desire not to release them during COVID-19. It’s the vaccine record! I want it to be the album everyone’s out dancing in the streets to.”
The “Let’s Fall in Love for the Night” singer stopped short of announcing a creative pause for the siblings. He assured fans new music is coming. “Billie and I are full steam ahead on her next record, I’m working on my own album too. I haven’t suffered at all because of my set-up.”
Both artists have adapted to COVID-19 quarantine conditions, and found ways to safely produce music. “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.”
Eilish has dipped her hand in many eclectic projects during COVID-19.
The singer used her platform at the 2020 Democratic National Convention, pleading with viewers to vote against President Donald Trump, before performing her latest single “my future.”
Fans were also marveling at just how much influence the 18-year-old superstar wields, after the Olympics Committee released an alternative logo for the 2028 Summer Olympics, designed by Eilish herself. Splashes of neon green mesh briefly expose Los Angeles’ “A” in a GIF posted by the Los Angeles Times. It’s an on-brand statement for an anti-establishment artist.
