Billie Eilish & Alicia Keys Perform “Ocean Eyes” on The Late Late Show with James Corden
- American singer-songwriters Alicia Keys and Billie Eilish appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden to perform Billie Eilish's “Ocean Eyes”.
This time, Alicia Keys was filling in for James Corden as host. Also she recently covered “Ocean Eyes” for Spotify’s Singles series.
The song was released by Billie Eilish in 2015 via SoundCloud. It was written by Billie Eilish and FINNEAS.
At that time, she said of the song, “[My brother] came into my room in October of last year to tell me he had this song called “Ocean Eyes.” He’d been doing it with his band before, but of course I’d heard it because I was right next door. I sang it, and we both loved it. It’s just a beautiful song, and [my brother] Finneas is an amazing writer. I loved it and I couldn’t get it out of my head for weeks. I’m in a dance company, and one of my teachers asked if I could record [the song] and send it to him so he could choreograph a dance. So all of the production is based off of lyrical contemporary dance.”
The track is included on her debut EP “dont smile at me”, which was released in 2017.
