Less than a week after teasing her latest single, Billie Eilish has delivered “Therefore I Am,” along with a pandemic-appropriate music video.
Just days ago, the 18-year-old superstar took to social media, saying “I’M SO EXCITED FOR THIS ONE” without any further context other than the single art. Now that the song is here, fans have been blessed with a predictably dark and bouncing song that is right in line with Eilish’s aesthetic.
The Darkroom/Interscope Records tune came with a fitting video in which Eilish gets her steps in at an abandoned mall, running around to hit all her favorite stores and snack spots, buying up soft pretzels and doughnuts while singing about how much fans don’t know about her: “I don’t want press to put your name next to mine/ We’re on different lines so I/ Wanna be nice enough/ They don’t call my bluff.” Check out the clip here.
