Billie Eilish covers ‘I’m in the Mood for Love’ on BBC Radio 1’s ‘Live Lounge’

Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas took to BBC Radio 1’s “Live Lounge” where they covered “I’m in the Mood for Love.”

The pair covered the track as performed by Julie London in 1955. While Eilish delivered a taste of some jazzy sensibilities on Happier Than Ever, she really leans into it on this jazz classic. Sitting in front of a red curtain, Finneas delivers intimate acoustic guitar lines, as Eilish croons overtop. Eilish’s captivating vocals give the lyrics a new sense of intimacy, as she delivers lines like, “I’m in the mood for love/ Simply because you’re near me.”

Alongside the cover, Eilish and Finneas delivered some amazing live renditions of their Happier Than Ever tracks, “I Didn’t Change My Number,” “NDA,” and “Getting Older.” All-in-all, Eilish and Finneas deliver an unbelievably stunning “Live Lounge” set.

About Happier Than Ever:

Happier Than Ever serves as the follow-up to When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?. The opening track, “Getting Older,” will fill you with a sort of nostalgic melancholy. Eilish delivers stunning melodies that are beautiful in their restraint. She then launches into a grittier, smoother sound that feels more reminiscent of her first album on “I Didn’t Change My Number.” Channeling her quintessential smooth vocal delivery, Eilish croons atop a pulsing instrumental.

Eilish’s monologue that she delivered at a show in Miami last spring serves as the centerpiece of this new collection. The powerful speech sees the young artist calling out the unacceptable expectations on women. “Nothing I do goes unseen,” Eilish says. This serves as the perfect hinge to the album, as Happier Than Ever is all about debunking happily-ever-after. Eilish is standing against the idea of a pop fairytale, subverting a Hollywood glamour throughout 16 tracks.
