Billie Eilish has just dropped a new music video that depicts a hellish apocalypse brought about by climate change.
In the video for her single “All the Good Girls Go to Hell”, the 17-year-old singer is a winged angel plummeting from the sky towards Planet Earth.
When she crashes down, she lands in the middle of what appears to be a pool of oil, lifting herself up and staggering through an apocalyptic, fiery hellscape before finally bursting into flames herself.
In conjunction with the video’s release, Eilish wrote a message to fans on Instagram Stories addressing the need for immediate action to be taken to combat climate change, urging her fans to take take to the streets and protest in the upcoming climate strike.
“Right now, there are millions of people all over the world begging our leaders to pay attention,” she wrote. “Our Earth is warming up at an unprecedented rate, ice caps are melting, our oceans are rising, our wildlife is being poisoned and our forests are burning.”
She added: “On September 23rd, the UN will host the 2019 Climate Action Summit to discuss how to tackle these issues. The clock is ticking. On Friday, September 20th and Friday, September 27th you can make your voice be heard. Take it to the streets.”
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Eilish discussed drawing inspiration from watching the world coming apart at the seams, referencing a lyric from “All the Good Girls Go to Hell”.
“There’s a line on there about hills burning in California. That’s a natural thing to have now — a huge part of L.A. on fire and there’s nothing you can do,” she said. “The skies are all grey and orange, and that’s natural. There’s school shootings all the time and that’s normal. That’s f**ked! This is our normal world and it’s not weird to us, because it’s what we’ve always had. It’s like, things are so f**ked, I’m just gonna make art about it.”
