Pop superstar Billie Eilish is already known for experimental music videos. The latest, for his new single “My Future”, is no exception.
In the new video, Eilish changes the dark atmosphere in and out of most of his videos to jump into an animated world. The video opens with a lively Eilish sitting in a forest during a rainstorm and looking at the moon. The rain is collected in the pools and leaves and the environment is perfectly inspired by films like Studio Ghibli Princess Mononoke.
As the song continues, she wanders through the woods, wiping out the dark clouds and rain with her presence and bringing new life to the ground. The newly formed roots and vines are surrounded by Eilish, raising it to the sky and emerging from the newly green and beautiful forest. The entire video plays as a midpoint My neighbor Totoro i Nausicaä de la Vall del Vent. It’s beautiful and hopeful, but not without a bit of the melancholy and deep sadness that makes Ghibli and director Hayao Miyazaki’s films look great.

Her last animated video was for the song “You Must See Me in a Crown,” where she teamed up with Takeshi Murakami to create a video with an apocalyptic vibe that ends with animated Billie becoming a giant monster. .. very far. the vision of “my future” from Studio-Ghibli-style spring.
