Billie Eilish is back with the surprise release of two new singles: “TV” and “The 30th.”
The tracks arrive as part of a surprise two-track EP called Guitar Songs, out now via Darkroom/Interscope. Eilish premiered “TV” live at a U.K. concert last month, but it’s the first time listeners have gotten to hear “The 30th.” Both tracks are stripped back acoustic guitar ballads that push Eilish’s silky falsettos to the forefront.
“FINNEAS and I really wanted these to be yours as soon as possible,” Eilish says. “So here they are! 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.”
Listen to “TV” and “The 30th” below.
Guitar Songs was made in collaboration with her brother, FINNEAS. While it only boasts two new songs, the politically charged “TV” and “The 30th,” it serves as the studio follow-up to 2021’s Happier Than Ever.
“We haven’t played a new song live before it’s out since 2017 or 2018,” Eilish said in Manchester before playing “TV.” “This is one we just wrote and we just wanted to play it for you.”
Lyrically, Eilish delivers lines like, “The internet’s gone wild watching movie stars on trial/ While they’re overturning Roe v. Wade.”
“We wrote that on December 30th , and that was actually the first song that we had written since Happier Than Ever,” Eilish says to Zane Lowe of “The 30th.”
