Rising 15-year-old pop sensation Billie Eilish has been steadily revealing cuts from her freshly announced debut EP, dont smile at me, single by single. So far, we’ve heard the lush break-up lullaby “watch” and last week’s tripping wannabes anthem “COPYCAT.”
This week, Billie is at it again with yet another taste off of dont smile at me: “idontwannabeyouanymore,” a deeper, more emotional and personal cut which sees her typically high-octane atmospherics taking the backseat to a bluesy-tinged, piano-driven production as she lets her vocals truly shine. “If teardrops could be bottled/ There’d be swimming pools filled by models/ Told “that tight dress is what makes you a whore”/ If “I love you” was a promise/ Would you break it, if you’re honest/ Tell the mirror what you know she’s heard before/ I don’t wanna be you anymore…,” Billie declares.
“idontwannabeyouanymore” abounds in soft melodies and organic soundscapes, showcasing a more versatile side of Billie. “This song is from the perspective of me towards me,” Billie explains of the new track, which is now available on all digital platforms and as part of the EP pre-order. Get into it!
