Throughout her musical career, Billie Eilish has openly spoken about her mental and physical health issues that she deals with such as Tourettes, synesthesia, and depression.
On “my future," she sings a letter to her past and future addressing her physical and emotional insecurities as she reassures herself with the importance of self-love and growth. Produced by her brother FINNEAS, “my future” introduces listeners with smooth vocals and mellow chords and switches to an uptempo based production with blissful acoustic strums, harmonious echoes, and lucid drum pockets.
Along with the track, she released an animated visual directed by Andrew Onorato that features an anime-influenced art style of Eilish walking through a dark and rainy forest which eventually shifts to a brighter and more positive landscape as she sings about her personal changes and plans for the better.
"We wrote this at the very beginning of quarantine," says Eilish in a note accompanying the track's release. "It’s a song that’s really really personal and special to me. When we wrote this song, it was exactly where my head was at—hopeful, excited and a craaaazy amount of self-reflection and self growth. But recently it has also taken on a lot of new meaning in the context of what’s happening in the world now. I hope you can all find meaning in it for yourselves.”
As for what to expect next from Billie, earlier this year she announced plans to release a documentary that dates back to 2018 and stated that she’s been recording her upcoming second album that has yet to be announced regarding a title and date.
