Before her long-awaited debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? arrives on Mar. 29, Billie Eilish has shared another taste of what the expect from the project.
The newly released "wish you were gay" follows "bury a friend," which has already amassed an impressive 72 million views on YouTube with its horror-inspired video.
Speaking about the new song with Zane Lowe, Eilish explained, "With 'wish you were gay,' it's like, it's a selfish song. It's a goofy, selfish joke, you know?" The song originally appeared online months before its oficial release, with Eilish teasing it via her Instagram on a previous livestream. "It's like I wish for my own sake that you didn't like me because you don't like girls. Not because it's anything to do with me. Don't worry. It's not personal at all. It's because I don't like any girls at all in the whole world."
