In celebration of the win, she’s shared a new song, a catchy and vaguely jazz-indebted uptempo R&B song called “Stop This Flame.” Check it out below.

After visiting Barcelona for the first time last March, when she had only an EP and a few singles to her name, American artist Billie Eilish, who at just 17 years old is an authentic world pop phenomenon, returns to town with her debut LP, ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ (2019), which has already become one of the best-selling albums of the year. She goes from the smaller Sant Jordi Club, where she played just six months earlier, to the Palau Sant Jordi to fill the stadium tonight with her secret formula of magnetic pop that has attracted comparisons to Lorde, James Blake, and Lana Del Rey.
Californian skate punk royalty FIDLAR graced the triple j Like A Version studio to deliver a raucous performance. The band performed ‘By Myself’, the lead single off their latest release, Almost Free. They also treated us to a reimagined version of Billie Eilish track ‘xanny’.
Her first album hasn’t been released yet and she hasn’t even debuted live in our country, but Billie Eilish is on a roll. The new post-millennial pop star will be tonight in the Sant Jordi Club,
Every step of this Californian artist is a new milestone… and she isn’t even 18 yet! Any statistic or fact Billie Eilish one day has drastically changed the next: keeping track of her hundreds of millions of listens on streaming platforms is impossible, as is counting her army of followers or trying to predict her limit (if she has one that is). So for now we will content ourselves with the latest facts we know about her: her first album comes preceded by the icy Bury A Friend, probably her most ghostly and rawest track to date, and she has also contributed a song, When I Was Older, to the soundtrack inspired by Alfonso Cuarón’s film Roma.
