Listen to “Therefore I Am”, out now: https://smarturl.it/ThereforeIAm
Directed by Billie Eilish
Some fans know her for songs like “Bury and Friend” and “Bad Guy.” Before releasing When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go, however, this artist had her songs featured on a few impressive soundtracks. Here’s what we know about Billie Eilish’s involvement with the Netflix original series, 13 Reasons Why.
Billie Eilish recently had her music featured on the James Bond soundtrack
Following the success of her album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go, Billie Eilish returned with a new song for the upcoming James Bond movie. This single, titled “No Time to Die” already accumulated over 170 million plays on Spotify.
“We wrote and recorded the Bond song on a tour bus in Texas,” Finneas said during an interview with Rolling Stone. “We did certain songs on the album in hotel rooms. You know, that’s kind of always been our philosophy: not letting the place that we get in the way of making great music.”
She wouldn’t be the first artist to write and perform songs in conjunction with the James Bond movies. In the past, Adele released the song “Skyfall” for the movie of the same title. However, Billie Eilish also had music appear on the soundtracks for a few television shows.
Billie Eilish’s music also made it to the ‘13 Reasons Why’ soundtrack
No Time to Die wouldn’t be the first project Billie Eilish and Finneas had their hands on. Recently, the artists and their music appeared in the soundtrack for Netflix’s original drama series 13 Reasons Why. In fact, a second song of theirs appeared on the soundtrack for the show’s second season.
According to The Fact Site, “Her song ‘Bored’ is on the Season 1 soundtrack, while on Season 2 she collaborated with Khalid on the track ‘Lovely.’” Other artists featured, according to the album on Spotify, include Joy Division, Selena Gomez, Sir Sly, and The Cure.
This wouldn’t be the first time Billie Eilish’s music was chosen for a television series
There’s no series that matches the Billie Eilish creepy vibe quite like American Horror Story. With a handful of seasons already released and available for binge-watching, this series featured different scary settings, from an insane asylum to a haunted hotel to an average American town plagued by an underground cult.
Most recently, the television show premiered a season inspired by slasher movies of the 1980s. Of course, the teaser trailer for AHS: 1984 featured the haunting singing voice of Billie Eilish. After fleeting into her cabin, the killer stabs his knife through the door. “Six Feet Under” by Billie Eilish plays softly in the background.
Music by Billie Eilish and Finneas, including the songs featured in 13 Reasons Why, No Time to Die, and American Horror Story, are available for streaming on music platforms like Spotify and Apple Music.
Billie Eilish released a powerful short film that addresses body shaming and the sexualization of young women.
On Tuesday (May 26), the 18-year-old pop star released “Not My Responsibility” to overwhelming support from her fans. During her Where Do We Go? World Tour, Eilish debuted a portion of the video that acted as an interlude during her set.
The “everything i wanted” singer begins the video by standing in darkness while wearing her signature oversized clothing. She begins unzipping her hoodie and undressing while speaking about the opinions of others.
“Would you like me to be smaller? Weaker? Softer? Taller? Would you like me to be quiet?” Eilish questions. “Do my shoulders provoke you? Does my chest? Am I my stomach? My hips? The body I was born with, is it not what you wanted?”
“If I wear what is comfortable, I am not a woman,” she continues, before sinking into a sea of black liquid. “If I shed layers, I’m a slut. Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge it… and judge me for it. Why make assumptions about people based on their size?”
“We decide who they are,” she continues. “We decide what they’re worth. If I wear more, if I wear less – who decides what that makes me and what that means? Is my value based only on your perception? Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?”
Last year, Eilish revealed in an interview with Calvin Klein that she wears her signature baggy clothes to avoid body shaming.

Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante has kept sharp during the coronavirus pandemic by playing covers with fellow metal musicians while social distancing. He’s posted the performances on his YouTube channel, and for his latest video, he’s once again teamed with Suicidal Tendencies bassist Ra Diaz to play through Billie Eilish‘s pop hit “bad guy”.
Benante (drums and guitar) and Diaz (bass) play along to Eilish’s vocals, and as expected, rock out a bit with the arrangement. For Eilish fans, it hints at what her music would sound like with more of hard rock vibe. As it is, Eilish has already shown her appreciation for heavy metal acts like Type O Negative and Rob Zombie with her onstage attire.

Billie Eilish has been having a productive quarantine.
The singer discussed recording new music and fostering dogs in a recent interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe.
“I know that everybody, like the beginning of this really got to people,” Eilish said. “I didn’t really have that experience because I cheated. I rescued two puppies, or fostered two puppies. I was completely distracted.”
She continued, “We’ve been in the ‘stu,’ which just means Finneas’ basement, basically. We actually, we wrote a whole song in its entirety—an entire song, which is kind of rare for us. I really love it. It was like exactly what I needed to say when we wrote it.”
While she misses touring and performing, saying “that feeling does not exist anywhere else,” she’s trying to remain hopeful during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Honestly, I feel great,” she said. “The song I was talking about earlier that we wrote a couple weeks ago that felt so right was … I wish I could sing it for you, but I can’t. It was just about, there was this part in it—I needed to say this—which was I know I’m supposed to feel unhappy right now because of this break and because I’m not seeing anybody … I feel like there’s this kind of thing that I feel like is floating around of like you’re supposed to be missing people. You’re supposed to be missing this person and be missing people in general. I kind of have this feeling of like, I miss my really close friends, I miss people, of course I do, but I also at the same time am liking the space.”
She added, “I’m liking that everybody can kind of grow right now. I hope that people are letting themselves grow instead of just reminiscing and wishing they were with other people.”
She also talked about launching her father-daughter Apple Music show, Me & Dad Radio, which debuted on May 8.
During the nearly hour-long set, the two siblings spoke about the importance of supporting small businesses during the coronavirus pandemic, thanks to adorable cue cards written by their mother.
“We are encouraging viewers to support their favorite local businesses during this tough time; today, we’re giving extra focus to green and sustainable businesses,” Finneas said to kick off the performance. “I guess, to me, tying this back to Earth Day, the things that are sustainable are the things that are the most important in life, cause they’re the things that are gonna carry us forward and lead to a brighter future.”
With that, Eilish kicked off her performance with her 2019 single “All the Good Girls Go to Hell,” hilariously clarifying beforehand that “as much as people wanna believe that this song is about me being a devil worshiper and being Satan, it’s not about that. It’s about global warming.”
The pop star and her brother/constant collaborator also played through a number of their respective hits, including “Ilomilo,” “Bad Guy” and “Everything I Wanted” by Eilish, as well as Finneas’ “Let’s Fall in Love for the Night,” “I Don’t Miss You At All” and “Break My Heart Again.”
Check out the full set by the superstar siblings below.
On Monday, Eilish took to her Instagram Live to perform snippets of the American Beauty score for her fans on the piano. And even though her broadcast should’ve been about the music, the 19-year-old rapper ended up taking it as an opportunity to spam the broadcast with thirsty comments.
Amongst Pump’s public declarations were things like, “Lemme take u on a date” and “Your [sic] the love of my life.” However, the comment that seemed to finally catch Eilish’s attention was one that read, “Plz lemme wife you.”
And her response? An uncontrollable burst of laughter. And while Eilish initially tried to keep it cool by saying, “I can’t even tell you what I’m laughing at,” it eventually got to the point where she had to unceremoniously shut him down with a final, “No thanks.”
Granted, Pump seemed undeterred, as he followed up by writing, “I’m serious” — though to Eilish’s credit, she just ignored him.
Normally, if you had to dance with your dad at prom, you’d be hearing about it from your classmates for the rest of your life. Your peers would start a petition to rename your school Remember When Marli Danced With Her Dad At Prom? Memorial High. However, the coronavirus quarantine has softened all of our hearts, and John Krasinski’s heart seemed plenty soft to begin with. That’s why, inspired by the recent viral video of Alabama teen Marli Odgers dancing with her dad in lieu of her canceled school function, Krasinski threw a virtual prom on his Some Good News YouTube channel.
Joining the actor were Least Likely To Be Named Prom Queen And Thus Most Likely To Win singer Billie Eilish and the Jonas Brothers, with two brief cameos from Chance the Rapper and Krasinski’s Office mate Rainn Wilson. Overall, at least as fun as our actual physical prom, minus the $$$. Hope you enjoyed, Class of 2020!
