Billie Eilish, Doja Cat, King Princess, and Camilo are among the artists that will dig into their “origins” in an upcoming Audible series.
The eight-episode Origins asks emerging musicians simply, “Where are you from?” with each episode revealing each artist’s backstory and influences in their own words.
As Eilish herself says in her episode, “It was so weird to me when I was first coming up and, and the thing everybody said was, like, ‘Billie Eilish’s music is so depressing, and it’s so sad, and it’s too dark,’ and I was like, ‘What are you talking about? Have you listened to the Beatles and While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Yesterday, and Lana Del Rey? Like, what the hell?’ It was so surprising to me that people thought anything I was creating was dark. I mean, it’s real.”
