As her March 29 album release date approaches, Darkroom/Interscope Records artist Billie Eilish has released a brand new track today, taken from her forthcoming debut full-length ‘WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?’ [PRE-ORDER HERE]. ‘wish you were gay’ has long been a fan favorite since early demo’s started circulating online in 2017. The song playfully details the longing and consequent coping of teenage lust and rejection. 17-year-old Billie reveals: ‘wish you were gay’ is about wanting to be with someone so bad it hurts, and not wanting to accept that this person doesn’t want you in return. At least if they were gay, I’d have a valid reason for their rejection and lack of interest in being with me. I wrote the song when I was 14 and madly in love with a boy. It’s supposed to be a fun and playful way at dealing with rejection.” ‘wish you were gay’ debuted today as a WORLD RECORD on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show on Apple Music. Listen HERE.
‘A Snippet Into Billie’s Mind – wish you were gay’ was also revealed today and is the second of three episodes in a short-form mini-series available exclusively on YouTube. Each episode will bring new insight into a song from her debut album, helping fans understand her process and shine new light on her music. Watch ‘A Snippet Into Billie’s Mind – wish you were gay’ HERE.
Starting today, for 48 hours, a portion of the proceeds from sales of Billie Eilish’s BLOHSH apparelwill benefit The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ youth.
