- American singer-songwriter Billie Eilish appeared on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge to perform “I'm In The Mood For Love”, “Getting Older”, “NDA” and “I Didn't Change My Number”.
“I'm In The Mood For Love” a popular song and was written by Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields in 1935.
This time, Billie Eilish covered American singer Julie London's version, which was released from her debut album “Julie Is Her Name” in 1955.
“Getting Older”, “NDA” and “I Didn't Change My Number” are included on her second studio album “Happier Than Ever”, which was released on July 30, 2021.
Billie Eilish said of “Getting Older”, “'Getting Older' was tough to write 'cause it's a very revealing song talking about things that I only at the time had just felt I realized about myself and felt insecure about and wanted to talk about. I don't know, I think that that happens a lot and it should be completely welcomed, is realizing stuff years later. You sometimes don't realize what's going on around you until a really long time later or realize what you feel until years later.”
She said of “NDA”, “'NDA' is kinda all over the map. It's got a lotta different things going on that were completely different situations. It was really just things I was thinking and feeling and doing in my life and I was like, I'll just write about it. I don't know, I think it's very cool. “NDA” is very all over the place and up for interpretation.”
She said of “I Didn't Change My Number”, “I Didn't Change My Number… I love this song so much. It's all about 'you can't get me anymore' where it's like you know what? I don't have sympathy for you anymore y'know? You got me! You got me at first but I don't care now. And it's really that and that only. And kinda just your last straw and being like 'I am confident in this being my last straw.' Y'know don't get me mad cause I will scream.”
