Billie Eilish Surprise Releases 2 New Songs - Listen to the 'Guitar Songs' EP Now!

Billie Eilish surprised fans with two brand new songs on Thursday (July 21)!

The 20-year-old Grammy winning singer dropped “TV” and “The 30th” as a two-track EP, Guitar Songs.

“I just started looking through my voice memos because it’s something I do all the time, and I have so many and I forget to… I forget I recorded stuff, and then I find it, and it’s very exciting to look through my voice memos and find all this stuff,” Billie shared with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. “I started playing ‘The 30th’, which I love so much, and we were just listening to it and crying together, and it was really sweet. Then I started playing ‘TV’, and we had actually just finished the song a couple weeks before, the week before. I was sitting there, and I was just talking out loud. I was just thinking out loud, and I was just like, ‘I want these to come out.’”

“We wrote that on December 30th, and that was actually the first song that we had written since ‘Happier Than Ever’. That’s why it’s called ‘The 30th’ because something happened on November 30th and it had just been the most indescribable thing to have to witness and experience,” Billie said of the song. “I had been writing down all these thoughts that I was having. I was with FINNEAS, and I was like, ‘I’m sorry, I don’t know what you were planning on doing, but we need to write this song about this right now,’ and we did, and that was the first song we wrote since ‘Happier Than Ever.’”

FINNEAS and I had talked about we want to be making music and we just haven’t had any time to make music and we’re on tour and it’s busy and this and that. So we made a little schedule. We were like, ‘Okay, well, let’s see if we make anything if we work today,’” she said of “TV.”

“But when you’re on the road and especially the schedule that we had, it was really tough. But we tried, and we ended up writing the, I think, first verse and the chorus …We wrote the first verse a couple months ago, many months ago now, and it was… Should I just say it? I’m actually with Laura right now. Laura‘s sitting here. We come into my green room, and I’m like, ‘Laura, listen to this song we just wrote,’ and it was just the verse. It was just the first verse. I play it, and Laura literally is sitting there like this, and I was like, ‘But it’s fictional. It’s just fictional. It’s not anything real. Don’t worry about it.’ Then a couple months went by, and things changed, and then we wrote the rest of the song.”

Billie is referring to a line in the song about Roe v Wade being overturned.

“We wrote that line a few weeks before it was officially overturned. It was a placeholder of doom. I mean, it was the day of Glastonbury that it happened, and I was sitting in the… We were at this house, and I was sitting with the dogs in the grass. My mom came out, and she just stood there, and she went, ‘They overturned it,’” Billie told Apple Music. “We all were just like… God, it was like a curtain of doom. I mean, there was almost no even reaction. I had this, I guess, now that I think about it, unrealistic hope that that wouldn’t happen. We wrote that line when the news got out about the fact that they’re considering overturning it, and we wrote that line then. It’s a really scary world right now.”
