Billie Eilish has shared a short cover of Ben Folds‘ ‘Still’, a song he contributed to the soundtrack for the 2006 animated DreamWorks film Over the Hedge. The 51-second clip, posted to Eilish’s TikTok, sees her performing the song on solo piano in front of a Christmas tree and presents, presumably at her house.
“I must give the impression that I have the answers for everything,” Eilish sings. “You were so disappointed to see me unravel so easily.”

Last month, Eilish performed a series of hometown shows at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles where she was joined by a number of famous friends. She performed ‘Mount Everest’ with Labrinth, recruited Dave Grohl for Foo Fighters‘ ‘My Hero’, invited Phoebe Bridgers onstage to perform 2017 track ‘Motion Sickness’, performed ‘Redbone’ with Childish Gambino, and ‘lovely’ with Khalid.
Last year, Eilish brought her long-awaited tour in support of latest album Happier Than Ever to Australia, playing a string of arenas throughout the country, supported by alt-pop up and comer Dora Jar.
In a review of a Melbourne date, Music Feeds said Eilish had “accomplished something unique” through her live show. “She manages to instil her emo songs with a peculiar energy – the communal experience of the live show allowing her to universalise inner-feelings. After all, the best magic is real.”
