Billie Eilish has left 'baby voice' behind as she gears up for new album release
Billie Eilish has revealed she started to feel like a ‘parody’ of herself and can hear herself using her ‘baby voice’ on her debut album.
The Bad Guy hitmaker may have enthralled listeners and earned critical acclaim for her debut record When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? – but she’s entirely more critical when she looks back at it.
‘I love When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, but at the same time I am so young,’ she recalled.
‘I like hear it and all I hear is just like a baby voice. I don’t know. It’s weird. I just feel like the new stuff that we’re making is so … It’s just weird how much you grow in two years,’ the 18-year-old added to Zane Lowe on his Apple Music show.
She went on to say: ‘For most of this year, like the first half of this year, I felt very trapped in my own facade weirdly … It happens occasionally still, but there was a couple of months in there where I was like, everything I wore, I was like, “Oh, I look like Billie Eilish.”
‘Everything I said, everything I did. And then we would make music and I would be like, this feels … I kept feeling like … What’s the word? Inauthentic. Yeah, inauthentic version of myself, because I felt like I was being myself too much.’
However, the singer, who’s just released her new single Therefore I Am, has no qualms about loving her own music, revealing she listens to her own tunes in her car.
‘Why would I want to make music that I don’t love?’ she reasoned – and who are we to argue with that?
Billie’s had plenty to celebrate recently, releasing her new single and seeing her bop Bad Guy hit one billion YouTube views.
She dropped the video for her hit single last March, and celebrated as the song hit a massive milestone.
Sharing a screenshot of the YouTube page on her Instagram story, she told her 68.9 million followers: ‘AYYYEEEEE BAD GUY HIT A BILLI.’
She is joined in the club by a string of musical legends, including BTS, Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran and Katy Perry.
