Billie Eilish Shares "When I Was Older" Inspired By 'Roma'

Billie Eilish Shares

Roma is not a movie aimed at Eilish's demographic, but here's Eilish with a Roma song anyway.

Though we're still unsure when we'll be able to hear that highly anticipated freshman effort, the 16-year-old alt-pop star gifted us with another chilling new song on Wednesday (January 9). Billie Eilish and her collaborative brother Finneas have proven to be talented beyond their years. The song's title was inspired by a line Pepe says in Roma: "When I was older I used to be a sailor, but drown in the storm". "Lines like "memories burn like a forest fire" are accompanied by the sounds of the trees burning in the woods outside the house". The chorus has the ocean sounds overplayed on it.

Again, Eilish's "When I Was Older" is influenced by 2018 drama, ROMA, which won multiple 2019 Golden Globe awards, including best foreign language film and best director of a motion picture.

Eilish has released a video called "When I Was Older (Music Inspired by the film ROMA)" a sparse and simply handsome auto-tuned piece that features Eilish's lovely voice. "Nothing about this song would exist without the film, which is exactly what we love about it".

But Eilish, bathing her voice in a digital tone, does sing about "watching movies back to back in black and white", seemingly as she mentally exorcises someone from her system.

While writing songs based on personal experiences, Eilish also tends to write songs from other perspectives. And it's probably not a coincidence that the song is coming out now, as Netflix, which released Roma, is trying to get more people to watch the movie, especially during its big Oscar campaign. Fast forward from her humble breakout, Billie's debut EP has since amassed more than 3.5 billion combined streams worldwide.
