Billie Eilish’s new song ‘my future meaning’ is a delicate celebration of her journey of self-reflection and self-growth.
She has been a busy bee in the past few months, releasing a video on body positivity and recording podcast episodes with her dad among other things. And she’s not stopping. Her new single, which will be released in just a few days, is her first piece of new music since her James Bond theme track “No Time to Die.”
Exactly half way through the song the beat switches and Billie goes from lamenting about her past to singing about her future. The video transforms as well - the rain disappears, nature starts to blossom and many of the shots appear edited to look optimistic and hopeful.
The singer’s lyrics in this track reflect her underlying fear of being abandoned, especially by people who do not deserve it. The song also touches on her unhealthy relationship with someone who doesn’t respect her space or mental health.
In an interview with Vogue, she opened up about the double meaning of her song and the lessons it taught her. She revealed that she was inspired to write the song in a moment where she felt “incredible” and that it helped her to build a bond with herself as she grew up.
This is an incredibly important message to get across, especially for young girls. We all want to be our best selves, and when we don’t feel like we are, it can be easy to fall into a cycle of depression and negative thinking. But it’s crucial to fight against these feelings and make sure that we do everything in our power to stay positive and strong.
