Billie Eilish has shared the video for ‘Xanny,’ which also marks her directorial debut. ‘Xanny’ also features on Eilish’s debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? And you can watch the song’s new video below.
“I’m very excited to share my directorial debut,” Eilish said in a statement. “Visuals are so important to me, and I’m very proud to be in a place where I can present my creative vision exactly as I want it. Thank you to everyone who has put their trust in me.”
The video features Eilish zoning out in an all-white outfit against a similarly hued wall. A series of disembodied hands put out cigarettes on her face, but she seems unfazed – almost as if she’s taken a titular Xanny.
The fast-rising, 17-year-old-star recently dropped an ode to her brother-producer Finneas, ‘Everything I Wanted,’ as well as nabbed six Grammy nominations; in addition to Best New Artist, she also also nominated for Record and Song of the Year (‘Bad Guy’) and Album of the Year. The awards will take place on 26 January at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and will air live on CBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
Capping off a busy year, Eilish is about to release her first live album, via Jack White’s Third Man Record, this Friday. In November, Eilish and her brother-producer Finneas O’Connell performed an acoustic set at Jack White’s Third Man Records for a small group of family, friends and fans. Now, that performance is coming to vinyl. An LP of Eilish’s acoustic set will be released to Third Man record stores in Nashville and Detroit this Friday.
Two limited-edition versions of the vinyl LP will be sold: a green vinyl edition available at both Third Man Records locations in Nashville and Detroit, and a select amount of black and blue split-color versions, featuring splatter artwork created by Eilish. The latter will be available at the Nashville storefront exclusively.
