As Billie Eilish’s video for “all the good girls go to hell” dropped, the singer immediately followed up its arrival with an Instagram story informing her followers about the upcoming global #climatestrike, the Climate Action Summit being hosted by the UN on September 23, along with a polemic about our planet’s uncertain future.
“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, icecaps are melting, our oceans are rising, our wildlife is being poisoned and our forests are burning.”
In the video directed by Rich Lee, Eilish’s back is injected with syringes by a team of medics, and enormous wings sprout from her body before she drops to Earth, landing in an oily swamp, now transformed into a mythical creature.
Stumbling through the streets, Eilish makes her way through a desolate, post-apocalyptic landscape dotted with raging fires, performing her softly-spoken single from her record-breaking debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?. Watch above.
