Billie Eilish presents a breathtaking cover of Julie London’s version of “I’m in the Mood for Love” during her visit to BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge.
Sitting on stools, the 19-year-old superstar and her brother/hitmaker-in-crime Finneas perform a swoon-worthy rendition of the original 1935 classic, which was composed by Jimmy McHugh and written by Dorothy Fields. Fitting in theme with the vintage photo shoots for her latest LP Happier Than Ever, Eilish commands the empty stage like an old soul with her drawn-out, silky vocals.
“I’m in the mood for love/ Simply because you’re near me/ Funny but when you’re near me/ I’m in the mood for love,” she croons while Finneas strums his acoustic guitar.
She also performed “NDA,” “Getting Older” and “I Didn’t Change My Number” during her BBC Radio 1 set, all three songs from her sophomore album Happier Than Ever, which she released last Friday.
