Fresh off her performances at the Reading and Leeds Festivals, Billie Eilish graced the stage for a cozy concert at London’s Electric Ballroom on the evening of August 29. The relatively small venue, with a 1,500-seat limit, became the stage for some unexpected guest appearances, as Billie welcomed indie-rock band Boygenius for a rendition of “When the Party’s Over” and linked up with Labrinth for their joint track “Never Felt So Alone.” Prior to revealing her guest artists, Eilish urged the audience to put their phones down, wanting to see the sea of faces before her while she brought on the next act. “I’m utterly smitten with all three of them,” she declared after Boygenius exited the stage. Video footage capturing these memorable moments with Boygenius and Labrinth is available for your viewing pleasure.
Even though Billie Eilish’s previous album, ‘Happier Than Ever,’ made its debut in 2021, the singer hasn’t taken any downtime when it comes to creating new tunes. She recently collaborated with Labrinth on the aforementioned song “Never Felt So Alone,” even making a surprise appearance during his performance at Coachella for the track’s inaugural live performance. Additionally, she’s ventured into the realm of kids’ movies with her track “What Was I Made For?”—a part of the Barbie film soundtrack. Accompanying this release was a whimsical music video where Eilish endeavored to dress a Barbie doppelgänger in haute couture mini-outfits, only to have a mischievous fan blow them away.
As for Boygenius, they haven’t been slouching either. Their first full-length album, aptly named ‘The Record,’ dropped this past March. Buckle up, because they’re planning an extensive tour across Europe and North America this fall, culminating in a major headlining performance at Madison Square Garden come October.
