Billie Eilish Launches Takashi Murakami Merchandise
Billie Eilish x Takashi Murakami merch takes its inspiration from the artwork in the music video.
After releasing her music video for ‘you should see me in a crown’ with legendary Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, Billie Eilish has shared official merchandise available on Apple Music.
The 17-year-old singer-songwriter teamed up with the contemporary artist to create a macabre animated visual that sees the singer morph into a Godzilla-sized spider that tramples the city.
Billie Eilish x Takashi Murakami merch takes its inspiration from the artwork in the music video, including Murakami’s signature flowers.
This marks the first time Apple Music has released merchandise and tapped famous streetwear designer Don C to create this exclusive line.
The collection includes a t-shirt and hoodie featuring a red spider and Eilish’s self-designed logo appliquéd on the back and is available to pre-order now from Apple Music.
Eilish and Murakami previously collaborated on a cover shoot for the biannual art and fashion-focused publication Garage Magazine.
“I think everything about her voice is simply beautiful,” Murakami told Garage. “She is making that nebulous, wistful feeling of adolescence that I myself once experienced into wonderful works!”
Eilish’s debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? set for the release on 29 March is one of the most highly anticipated albums this year. Her singles from the forthcoming album ‘bury a friend’ and ‘wish you were a guy’ have already both cracked the Billboard 100 at No.14 and No.59, respectively and the album just broke the worldwide record for most ‘pre-adds’ on Apple Music.
‘Pre-Adds’ refer to Apple Music subscribers who save the album ahead of time, so they instantly have access to the title upon release.
The LA-singer and viral pop sensation is also gearing up play Coachella music festival next month and continues her European tour before heading to North America the end of May.
