In case you needed another reason to stan Billie Eilish, FINNEAS, James Blake, or all of the above, today we are elated to present you a truly heavenly cover. The new cover comes on the heels of a resolution Blake made for the new year and decade to "spend more time at my instrument than at a laptop."
It is a resolution that gifted us with an angelic cover of Frank Ocean's "Godspeed," and now an earth-shattering rendition of Billie Eilish's "when the party's over." The track appeared on Eilish' universally-acclaimed debut album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?, and was written and produced by her sole collaborator and producer, FINNEAS.
The video and cover is a simple yet spellbinding one, featuring a single shot of Blake perched at a piano, while he lets his divine falsetto float through the air. The only added note was a quick nod to the original composers, as Blake stated in a tweet, "P.s. what a ridiculously good song this is @billieeilish & @finneas."
Hiiii, haven't had access to my piano recently but @steinwayandsons sent me one so I could keep this series going - here's one of my favorites - Billie Eilish's 'When The Party's Over': https://t.co/IL55bZMf7A- James Blake (@jamesblake) March 9, 2020

The shared appreciation was echoed in a tweet by FINNEAS, who perfectly voiced our feelings, confessing, "On the list of things I feel grateful for for, James ranks higher than just about everything."
