    Billie Eilish recently visited Jack White’s Third Man Records in Nashville to cut a live album direct-to-acetate disc, according to The Tennessean.

    Eilish and her brother, Finneas, played a secret, invite-only show at Third Man on Wednesday night. The 11-song acoustic set included performances of “Ocean Eyes”, “Bury a Friend”, “I Love You”, and “Bad Guy”.

    The 17-year-old pop singer was apparently struck by the recording process, commenting at one point, “Do you see that? They’re like making my voice onto a thing. Like right now! That’s crazy.”

    White introduced Eilish’s performance, describing the singer “as someone we really love, and we think is really innovative and inspiring.” Later, Eilish returned the kind words by thanking White for “inspiring a whole generation of people to do what they want.”


    Update: The LP will be available at Third Man’s retail locations in Nashville and Detroit on Friday, December 6th. Fans will have access to two versions, both extremely limited: a green vinyl edition available at both the Nashville and Detroit locations, and an extremely limited amount of black & blue split-color versions, featuring one-of-a-kind splatter artwork created by Eilish herself, available at the Nashville storefront exclusively.

    Eilish recently announced an extensive tour behind her breakout debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, which is one of 100 favorite releases of the last decade. To coincide with the tour’s launch, she recently released a new single called “everything i wanted”.
