Last week, a video of 11-year-old Billie covering Missy Higgins’ ‘Secret’ – taken from her 2007 record On A Clear Night – went viral thanks to The New York Times’ interview series ‘Diary Of A Song.’
Now, Higgins has seen the cover and seems to be pretty bloody chuffed that a young Eilish would choose her song to perform. Higgins took to Twitter to thank Eilish and congratulate her on her wild success.
“I’ve been really getting into [Billie Eilish’s] new album the last week and just found out she covered my song ’Secret’ when she was 11!,” Higgins tweeted.
“Kind of blows my mind for a lot of reasons. Congrats Billie on your #1 album here in Oz! x”

ICYMI, Billie Eilish is currently dominating the ARIA Charts right now. Her album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? is #1 on the album charts and she also currently holds six spots in the top 10 of the singles chart, with her newly released single ‘Bad Guy’ sitting at the top.
She’s also in the country very soon, for a huge headline tour as well as leading the charge for this year’s Groovin The Moo festival. Shall we manifest a Billie x Missy collab? We think so.
