Originally published on SoundCloud on November 18, it was released on November 18,through Darkroom and Interscope Records. When asked about how the song came about in an interview with Teen Vogue 's Ariana Marsh, Eilish said: . I've been dancing since I was eight. Last year, one of my teachers asked if I would either write a song or have my brother write a song to choreograph a dance to.
I was like, 'yes, Why I Died Wide Eyed - Various - Screams From Across The Ocean such a cool thing to do! He told me he thought it would sound really good in my voice.
He taught me the song and we sang it together along to his guitar and I loved it—it was stuck in my head for weeks. We kind of just decided that that was the song we were going to use for the dance. We put it on SoundCloud with a free download link next to it so my dance teacher could access it. We had no intentions for it, really. But basically overnight a ton of people started hearing it and sharing it.
Hillydilly, a music discovery website, found it and posted it and it just got bigger and bigger. It was really surreal. I want to help you guys. Chris DeVille of Stereogum said "the song is pure pop, a ballad about longing for reconciliation with an ex.
I can imagine it becoming a major hit, and director Megan Thompson's video will Palace Of Gold - Wolfpakk - Cry Wolf help. It's a profound description for a year-old, and it's led to an enormous amount of interest in her debut song—as well as the singer herself.
Like the title suggests, her airy soprano vocals also conjure up thoughts of the ocean washing over the song's mellow percussion and minimalist synths. The song's maturity paired with a few childish ideals—she sings, for example, that love is 'no fair'—struck a chord with an audience much older than Eilish and has racked up a total of more than , streams on Spotify.
