Billie Eilish Says She Used To Sit In Car And Cry To Mr Brightside

Billie Eilish has revealed she used to sit in the car and cry to 'Mr. Brightside' by The Killers.

Eilish and her brother and co-writer Finneas O'Connell opened up about their love for the band and the tune specifically in a clip shared by People.

In the video, singer-songwriter and producer O'Connell said: "The Killers is a band that I think we both sort of view as a childhood favourite - especially Hot Fuss, the album, because 'Mr. Brightside' on it is just such an important piece of music to us."


Eilish added: "I mean, there was a lot of times when I would just sit in the car and cry to 'Mr. Brightside' even though nothing in my life, at all, was that situation.

"There's music that just makes you feel heard - even if what you feel heard for isn't how you feel, if that makes sense.

"I love it - love The Killers."

The 19-year-old will be coming out of her cage in documentary film The World's A Little Blurry, which is due to be released next month.


The documentary will offer fans the chance to see behind the scenes as the teen singer recorded the 'album that changed her life'.

A synopsis reads: "Billie Eilish: The World's A Little Blurry tells the true coming-of-age story of the singer-songwriter and her rise to global superstardom.

"From award-winning filmmaker R.J. Cutler, the documentary offers a deeply intimate look at this extraordinary teenager's journey, at just 17 years old, navigating life on the road, on stage, and at home with her family, while writing, recording and releasing her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?."


It's out on Apple TV+ on 26 February.

The singer-songwriter has had her hair black with bright green roots since the summer of 2019, but it seems as though not everyone is a fan of the colourful 'do.


In an Instagram Live last month, she jokingly threatened not to release her new album if the jibes didn't end.

She said: "Stop making fun of me - my God.

"I am making you a f****** album.

"I will not put it out if you keep making fun of my hair. Shut up."
