The Los Angeles native is mostly known for her broody lyrics and dark themed songs (listen to “when the party’s over” or “idontwannabeyouanymore“) but her latest release feels much different.
Apple came to the singer and her brother, artist/songwriter, Finneas, to write a song for their new holiday campaign called “Share Your Gifts”. “Billie and I got sent an incredibly early version of this commercial when they were still putting it together and we wrote this song while watching it. Beyond honored to be a part of this wonderful piece” said Finneas.
“come out and play” is a gorgeous acoustic ballad prompting those of a shy nature to get out and share your gifts and talents with the rest of the world. Billie Eilish opened up to Zane Lowe on Beats 1 more in-depth about the new song. “It was very different because we had never written a song about empowering yourself. Your talent and what you love is a gift to you… If it’s something you enjoy, share it. It’s very Christmassy and cute.”
