Billie Eilish


Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell have written songs for fictional boyband 4*Town, who will featuring in new Pixar movie ‘Turning Red’. A bit of one of those songs can be heard in the new trailer for the film, which is out in March. Although you’ll mainly hear NSync’s ‘It’s Gonna Be Me’, which Eilish and O’Connell did not write (being only four and one when it originally came out).



The Kid Laroi has released the video for ‘Still Chose You’, from his ‘Fuck Love’ album. In a letter to fans, he writes, “I know that [song] is a fan favourite, so I felt that it was only right for that to be the video that finally closes the ‘Fuck Love’ era”.

Cate Le Bon has revealed the second single for her upcoming ‘Pompeii’ album, ‘Moderation’. The album is out on 4 Feb.

Benjamin Francis Leftwich has released new Christmas song ‘Tinsel In The River’. He says it’s “about sitting alone over the Christmas period and reflecting over the previous year of love, loss and what could have been – but flew out of one’s hands”.

Wargasm are back with new single ‘Scratchcard Feeling’. The duo explain: “The ‘scratchcard feeling’ is the feeling of duality when perception from the outside world doesn’t quite line up with what’s going on inside your head. You know you’re not gonna win but you still buy the ticket every day, and if you do win, it’s never really that much of a victory – but you feel lucky so you do it anyway”.

Keeley Forsyth has announced that she will release her second album, ‘Limbs’, on 25 Feb. She’s also put out new single ‘Bring Me Water’. “The song picks up where ‘Start Again’, the final track on [debut album] ‘Debris’, left off”, she explains. “It comes from a similar place, approached at a different angle, with the line ‘let me begin again’ central to that. It plots a journey from a place of darkness, but marks the point at which we choose to grow. Bring me water. Give me light. These are the basic things required to start that process”.

Ego Ella May has released new single ‘For The Both Of Us’. It is, she says, “a song about what happens after a romantic relationship ends. The dreams you held together, the plans you made… what do you do with it all? It’s sad because not only does the relationship die, but so does your future life with that person”.
