17-year-old sad indie pop icon Billie Eilish has just shared a new track called “Roma,” which was inspired by Alfonso Cuarón’s acclaimed new movie Roma.
Eilish generally writes from perspectives other than her own, so this seems like a perfect fit. “I write in characters a lot, so it’s not necessarily anything that I’m going through at all,” the teen sensation told Consequence of Sound. “It’s just art.”
Listen to “When I Was Older” below.
Roma, which recently took home two Golden Globes, follows a domestic worker’s life in 1970’s Mexico.
