Billie Eilish has shared a 51-second take on the Ben Folds Over The Hedge classic tune, Still.

Perched on a piano by a Christmas tree, the Happier Than Ever singer's first TikTok of 2023 features her delicately singing, "I must give the impression that I have the answers for everything. You were so disappointed to see me unravel so easily/It’s only change, it’s only everything I know/It’s only change, and I’m only changing." The track's lyrics appear onscreen.

During her second-last concert of 2022, Eilish brought out Dave Grohl to perform an acoustic rendition of the Foo Fighters classic, My Hero and sang Motion Sickness alongside Phoebe Bridgers.  

Grohl dedicated their duet to the late Foo Fighters drummer, Taylor Hawkins. "You know, I have to say, earlier this year, all of the Foo Fighters and our families gathered together at my house to watch the Grammys, and when Billie came out for her performance in the Taylor Hawkins T-shirt, the room was filled with real tears of love and gratitude," Grohl commented.  

In the performance of Motion Sickness, Bridgers opened her song alone. Eilish provided harmonies throughout the track and made it her own when singing the second verse. View footage of both performances HERE.

"By the time the streamers fell on the pulsating mass heaving to the finale of closing salvo bad guy and Happier Than Ever, there was no denying that Billie Eilish was as much a rockstar as any guitar hero before her," we said upon catching the superstar's concert at Qudos Bank Arena.

Phoebe Bridgers will perform at Laneway Festival this February, as well as two special sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne. 

The Grammy-nominated I Know The End singer released her debut album, Stranger In The Alps, in 2017. Since then, it's been a wild, supremely creative and productive couple of years for Bridgers.

Her second album, 2020's Punisher, saw Bridgers reach new songwriting heights. It was the sensitive, spectacular soundtrack to life in and out of lockdown worldwide – even the Grammys took notice. In 2021 she received nominations for Best New Artist, Best Alternative Album, Best Rock Song and Best Rock performance.  

HAIM, Joji, Fred Again..., The Jungle Giants, Finneas, The Beths, Yard Act Slowthai, Turnstile, 100 Gecs, Girl In Red, Chaos In The CBD, Knucks, Ross From Friends, and Logic 1000 will join Bridgers at Laneway Festival.

Locally, the line-up also features the incredible Adam Newling, The Backseat Lovers, Harvey Sutherland, Jacotene, jamesjamesjames, Logic1000, Sycco, Tasman Keith and The Lazy Eyes.
