Billie Eilish and Brother Finneas Drop Two New Surprise Songs, Including the Excellent “TV” Referencing Roe v. Wade


Surprise! We have two new Billie Eilish songs with brother Finneas. They are “The 30th” and the excellent “TV.”

As I ascertained in the Oscars press room, Billie is happy now and she’s singing more forcefully. She has a rich voice that still hasn’t been quite heard.

These two tracks are called “Guitar Songs.” They’re likely the building blocks for a new album.

“TV” references Roe v. Wade, and is also funny regarding “Survivor.” It’s one of the siblings’ best songs and comes just as we are looking for a song of the summer.

“FINNEAS and I really wanted these to be yours as soon as possible. So here they are!!” Shared Eilish in a statement. “Performing ‘TV’ on tour was such a highlight for us too, so we took the audio from the first night we played it in Manchester and put it in the song. I get shivers every time I hear it. Hope you love the songs and thank you for letting us share our music with you.”
