The LA-based star followed up her July release of “My Future” last week with the new track, which was accompanied by a clip that was filmed in the deserted Glendale Galleria shopping mall in California.
“Therefore I Am” arrived just days after Eilish’s 2019 hit “Bad Guy” hit one billion views on YouTube, becoming her first track to achieve such a feat, although her “Lovely” collaboration with Khalid is currently not far behind, having racked up nearly 900 million views.
Speaking to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe last week, Eilish explained how the circumstances of the coronavirus pandemic have affected her writing and recording plans this year.
“I mean, we would have made something, but it would have been completely different,” she said. “It’s not like we’re making songs about quarantine, we’re just in a different mindset than we would be otherwise and that’s just how everything is. It’s the butterfly effect.
“It’s like if you hadn’t done this three years ago, maybe you wouldn’t be doing this three years later. It’s just the way that it is. At the same time, this is the most time off I’ve ever had in my life, first of all. And especially since this all started like five years ago.”
Eilish will perform ‘Therefore I Am’ at the upcoming American Music Awards on Sunday, November 22), for which she has been nominated for ‘Favorite Artist – Alternative Rock’ and ‘Favorite Social Artist’.
