Billie Eilish praises Frank Ocean and Julian Casablancas. While promoting her new Apple TV documentary, ‘The Worlds A Little Blurry’, the single spoke to The New York Times for their “My Ten” series.
First off she praised Frank Ocean and his sophomore album, ‘Blonde’. She said: “Blonde is my go-to album to play any time at all, but especially when I need to relax. When I had a plaster mold made of my head for a photo shoot for the cover of Garage magazine a few years ago, I played Frank Ocean the entire hour so I wouldn’t have a panic attack. I haven’t gotten to meet him, but I don’t expect him to ever even come near me. He can stay being God up in the clouds”.
She then praised Julian Casablancas and The Stroke’s 2020 album, ‘The New Abnormal’. She said the following: “When I first found the album, I was going on a lot of bike rides. I would play the whole album on my speaker backpack and ride around random neighborhoods, and it was always sunny and breezy and pretty and green. Julian Casablancas is just a genius — every time I hear his lyrics I think, “I would never think to say that.” That’s what I love about them — they’re so unexpected, but also relatable. Every single song is good”.
