Michael Bublé Has Responded After Billie Eilish Revealed That One Of His Songs Inspired Her New Single

The track, which marked Eilish’s first release since her Bond theme “No Time to Die”, was released in July. 

“The idea came subconsciously from a video that I found of myself from when I was, I think, 13 or 14,” Eilish told BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac.

“My Snapchat was like, ‘Four years ago today…’, and it was this video of me, I think at 14, and I was listening to ‘Just Haven’t Met You Yet’ by Michael Bublé.

“And that song, when I was that age, I used to listen to it night and day just because it made me hopeful. I was also really depressed at the time and sad all the time, and that song made me excited for the future.”

Eilish said she sent the video to a friend who said she enjoyed it because “it almost looks like you’re talking about your future self, like, I just haven’t met you yet, and I’m excited to meet you”.

“And I was like, ‘That’s so cute.’ I didn’t even think about that until after I had written the chorus, but I knew that it was subconscious,” Eilish said. “I was totally thinking about that. It was so exactly what I was feeling and thinking and wanted to convey and wanted to say and wanted to be heard.”

Bublé tweeted in response to her comments: “Hey [email protected] I’m a huge fan. I just heard your story about ‘Haven’t Met You Yet’. Music is a great healer and writing really helped me during some tough times. Your music inspires me and I am so touched that mine has done the same for you.”

Quote-tweeting Bublé’s response, Eilish’s brother and collaborator Finneas wrote: “BUBLÉ HAS SPOKEN.”

Eilish stars in a forthcoming Apple TV+ documentary, The World’s a Little Blurry, which is scheduled to air in February.
