Billie Eilish O’Connell brengt in het najaar van 2015 haar eerste track uit, Ocean Eyes. Haar broer, Finneas O’Connell, schreef het nummer voor zijn band The Slightlys, maar gaf het uiteindelijk aan Billie. Finneas zou uiteindelijk blijven schrijven en produceren voor zijn zus.


In 2017 is het nummer Bored te horen in de serie 13 Reasons Why en niet veel later verschijnt haar eerste ep, Don’t Smile At Me. Met Khalid levert ze via Lovely opnieuw een nummer voor die serie. Van haar debuutalbum When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go, dat op 29 maart 2019 verschijnt, worden When The Party’s Over en Bury A Friend Top 40-hits. Kort na de release van het album wordt ook het meer dansbare Bad Guy populair en later haar eerste top 10-hit. Ook verschijnt er een versie van dat nummer waarop Justin Bieber te horen is. Ondertussen is ze te zien op het podium van Lowlands.

Begin september verschijnt er een video bij de volgende track van haar album, All The Good Girls Go To Hell. In november verschijnt er, voor het eerst in 8 maanden tijd, weer nieuwe muziek van Eilish met de track Everything I Wanted.

Songtekst

I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
Not what you'd think
And if I'm bein' honest
It might have been a nightmare
To anyone who might care
Thought I could fly
So I stepped off the Golden, hmm
Nobody cried
Nobody even noticed
I saw them standing right there
Kinda thought they might care

I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
But when I wake up, I see
You with me

And you say
As long as I'm here
No one can hurt you
Don't wanna lie here
But you can learn to
If I could change
The way that you see yourself
You wouldn't wonder why you're here
They don't deserve you

I tried to scream
But my head was underwater
They called me weak
Like I'm not just somebody's daughter
Coulda been a nightmare
But it felt like they were right there
And it feels like yesterday was a year ago
But I don't wanna let anybody know
Cause everybody wants something from me now
And I don't wanna let 'em down

I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
But when I wake up, I see
You with me

And you say
As long as I'm here
No one can hurt you
Don't wanna lie here
But you can learn to
If I could change
The way that you see yourself
You wouldn't wonder why you're here
They don't deserve you

If I knew it all then
Would I do it again
Would I do it again
If they knew what they said
Would go straight to my head
What would they say instead

If I knew it all then
Would I do it again
Would I do it again
If they knew what they said
Would go straight to my head
What would they say instead
