Eilish meanwhile, recently expressed her admiration for Childish Gambino, describing him as “one of my all-time favourite creators”.

This comes after the singer cited Avril Lavigne as an essential artist from her younger years, hailing ‘Losing Grip’ as her “favourite Avril song ever, a very big song from my childhood”.

Meanwhile, the recently-released ‘My Future’ serves as Eilish’s first new music since her record-breaking Bond theme ‘No Time To Die’, which followed up on last year’s ‘Everything I Wanted’.
