LeAnn Rimes has delivered her own raw take on Billie Eilish’s track “When the Party’s Over.”
Rimes posted her cover video on YouTube on Friday.
“Happy LovE day, everyone!” LeAnn shared on Instagram. “In the next installment of the #LovESessions I cover one of my favorite @billieeilish songs, ‘when the party’s over’! Watch the full video on my @youtube channel.”
Filmed at her Los Angeles home by her husband, actor Eddie Cibrian, Rimes is shown seated alone at the head of her dining room. The stripped down track features Rimes singing the song on her own in a dimly lit room.
“This song has a haunting quality about it that has always moved me,” she added. “When dreaming up the way to cover this song, that haunting quality is something I wanted to expand on. Singing it acapella does just that and there’s also an intimacy, a vulnerable connection from artist to listener, almost like you were hearing me sing a deeply confessional journal entry.”
Each Friday in the month of February, Rimes has released a new cover of one of her favorite love songs. The new performance follows Rimes’ cover of Selena Gomez’s “Lose You to Love Me.”
Eilish just won Best New Artist at the 2020 Grammys at age 18, making her the second youngest winner of the award. The youngest is Rimes, who was only 14 when she won the award in 1997.
