The buzz around Billie Eilish will only get louder with the arrival of 'Bellyache.'

Billie Eilish contributed one of the few original tracks to the 13 Reasons Why soundtrack. And “Bored,” a lilting mid-tempo about emotional inertia, stands toe-to-toe with the eclectic mix of vintage bops and indie gems. She drops a Miles & AJ-directed visual arrives today (June 26) and it’s a suitably solemn affair. “The video was inspired by being trapped in a relationship that was going nowhere,” the 15-year-old reveals. “In my mind its that when you’re in such a toxic place with someone and you’re treated so badly for such a long time that eventually you’re used to it. It gets boring.”

The video conveys that concept by having Billie perched on a giant ladder in a white room. “I love ladders for some reason and the thought of being on an endless ladder in a kind of timeless/antigravity space also where no rules apply, is just really sick to me, and goes with the concept of the song by getting nowhere in a relationship, and getting bored,” she explains. “Bored” has already racked up more than 7 million Spotify stream and may (or may not) feature on her debut EP, which is imminent. Watch up top.
