Just days after debuting her accidental new 'do at the Los Angeles for the 2019 LACMA Art + Film Gala, Billie Eilish boarded a plane and flew to Nashville to play an intimate, stripped down set in The Blue Room at Jack White's Third Man Records. While she and her brother/collaborator FINNEAS performed to a room of excited fans and friends, she was recorded live on the label's direct-to-acetate system. The performance will be pressed onto vinyl and available for purchase in December, only at Third Man Records' Nashville and Detroit retail locations. Attendees will also receive a special edition black & blue copy of the record, which features one-of-a-kind artwork designed by the young star during her evening at the label's headquarters.
According to a press release, the 17-year-old was introduced by White, who praised her as "someone we really love, and we think is really innovative and inspiring." Before playing her final song of the night ("when the party's over"), Eilish thanked The Raconteurs frontman for "inspiring a whole generation of people to do what they want."
Third Man Records shared some photos from the evening via Instagram. Check out the post below.
Eilish officially kicks off her Where Do We Go? world tour in March 2020, but before that she's set to perform at the Los Angeles stop of iHeartRadio's 2019 Jingle Ball tour in December and ALTerEgo in January.
