Billie Eilish heads to brother Finneas’ home studio as they work on recording her new album amid coronavirus lockdown
It’s not everyone’s idea of an ‘essential’ job.
But it seems Billie Eilish is using her time in isolation to work on her next album.
While California’s Shelter At Home guidelines state that one should only spend time with those in the same household, the teen star was seen at her brother Finneas’s home on Wednesday.
Until recently the two lived together in the small family home where they grew up.

Billie, 18, still lives there, along with her parents, while Finneas moved out last year to live with his girlfriend.
Pictures taken on Wednesday showed the green-haired pop star climbing into her car outside of Finneas’ house, where he has a home recording studio.
Separately, Finneas was seen outside the building, laughing with a glove-wearing friend – who stood the required 6 feet away.

Before the coronavirus hit, Finneas said of his plans for the next album: ‘We’ve started working on the new album, and I think the best thing we can do is stay out of our own way.
‘The first album was pretty pure in its intention. We didn’t set out to write a darling album. Our only target was to make an album that we liked, to play live.
‘I think that’s all we’re gonna do for the second. All the other things are side effects. You can’t aim for those.’
Finished for the day: The teen has big plans for her next album
Last year, Finneas revealed Billie would be heading in an ‘experimental’ direction following the success of the 2019 record, which saw her bag multiple awards, including becoming the youngest artist to sweep the main four categories at the Grammys.
Finneas explained: ‘I think so far, in album two … there’s just a lot of stories we felt we didn’t get to tell yet. ‘We’re just trying to tell all those and we’re being a little bit experimental.
‘I think if you’re not trying to change things a little bit, you’re not evolving. So I think we’re just trying to embrace everything that we are proud of in our music and also just try new things and experiment and give people stuff to look forward to.’
