Billie Eilish releases original song for Roma-inspired album

Billie Eilish - When I Was Older
Seventeen-year-old multi-platinum global pop-phenom Billie Eilish has released an original song for the forthcoming Inspired By album to the critically acclaimed, two-time Golden Globe®-winning Netflix film, ROMA.

Inspired by the film and curated by Academy Award®-winning ROMA director Alfonso Cuarón, When I Was Older (Music Inspired by Roma) was written by Eilish and her older brother Finneas O’Connell and is out now worldwide via Darkroom/Interscope Records, ahead of the release of a full-length Music Inspired By Roma album via Sony Music Masterworks.

The song stays true to Billie's sound, which a beautiful production and somewhat of a melancholic and dreamy atmosphere. Loving her vocal delivery here and the chorus is highly addictive. Stream it below!

Speaking about the song the siblings said,
When we were composing the song, we wanted to write from within the narrative of the movie and the scenes that struck us the most from it. Having access to the sounds used in the film proved to be invaluable to help us convey this. Lines like “memories burn like a forest fire” are accompanied by the sounds of the trees burning in the woods outside the house. The chorus, has the ocean sounds overplayed on it. We were also able to take sounds like the student protest shouts and Borras barking and turn them into rhythmic percussive elements to help drive the song. Nothing about this song would exist without the film, which is exactly what we love about it.
