Billie Eilish has shared screenshots of her Apple Music playlists filled with the songs that inspired her acclaimed album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

On her Instagram Story, the singer asked if fans would like to see “lists of songs that inspired each song” featured on the album.

She then proceeded to share the six songs which inspired “Bad Guy”, including Mac Miller‘s ‘Dang!”, JID’s “Never”, Smino’s “Amphetamine” and Julia Michaels’ “Pink”.

According to the 18-year-old, “Bury a Friend” was inspired by Tyler, the Creator’s “Garbage” and Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead”.

“Listen Before I Go” was inspired by Daughter’s “Smother” and XXXTENTACION’s “I Don’t Wanna Do This Anymore.”

The “When The Party’s Over” playlist includes Bon Iver and Imogen Heap, with their respective tracks “715 – CRΣΣKS” and “Hide and Seek”. Also appearing across the playlists are Post Malone, Anne-Marie, Jessie Reyez and Sufjan Stevens.

Screenshots of Eilish’s playlists can currently be found on her Instagram Story.

Eilish previously had to delay her world tour due to the coronavirus.


She is, however, set to perform live from her home for Elton John’s upcoming Coronavirus relief concert the iHeart Living Room Concert for America.

Earlier this month, Eilish’s brother and production collaborator Finneas O’Connell revealed that the duo were working on another album.
