Billie Eilish makes directorial debut with eerily minimalist “xanny” video
A woman of many talents.December 5, 2019
Billie Eilish continues to do things her way, and she’s having incredible success doing it. The 17-year old phenom just made her directorial debut for her hit “xanny” off of WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?
Billie is fresh off the heels of history. She was nominated for six Grammy Awards and is the youngest artist to be nominated for the four major categories.
After dominating the top Spotify and Apple Music lists this year Eilish has made plenty of headlines in 2019. Her world tour sold out within an hour and she was nominated for six Grammy Awards. But, she had yet to direct one of her own music videos. That changed today with the addition of “xanny”. Check it out below.
As per usual, the video has a few jarring visuals and some disturbing movements but is overall pretty straight forward. It’s not over the top and it’s all shot on the same couch.
“I’m very excited to share my directorial debut.” Eilish says. “Visuals are so important to me, and I’m very proud to be in a place where I can present my creative vision exactly as I want it. Thank you to everyone who has put their trust in me.”
Eilish is sure to break even more ground in 2020. She quickly dominated the music industry and became a household name in 2019.
