Billie Eilish has officially released Guitar Songs across DSP’s today. Two songs, the previously heard and much loved ‘TV,’ and a brand-new track titled ‘The 30th.’ Today’s release follows her surprise live performance and debut of ‘TV’ in the U.K. last month, during her sold out HAPPIER THAN EVER WORLD TOUR. “We haven’t played a new song live before it’s out since 2017 or 2018,” Billie told concertgoers before she and her brother FINNEAS performed it for the first time. It closes with live vocals from her audience, recorded in Manchester’s twenty-one thousand capacity AO Arena last month. Both songs serve a reminder that 20-year-old Eilish remains one of the most treasured singer-songwriters of her generation. Writing and releasing music both observational and reflective on her own life experiences and society – something all the greatest songwriters have done before her. Both songs are available to stream now. Listen HERE.

“This was not only the first song to be written for the record, it was also one of the few to survive 2020 and became the blueprint, lyrically and sonically, for the rest of the album,” Matt said of the track. “‘How Will I Know?’ was mostly created during the seven months I was apart from my girlfriend. I found that the longer we spent apart, the more I started to question. How will I know if I’m going to see this person again? And even if I do, how will I know it’ll be the same as before? After writing the song, I began to wonder if it’s the dreams and beliefs which are challenged that become our strongest.”
