Brett Eldredge is continuing to show his range across different genres, releasing a beautiful live version of Billie Eilish’s “When The Party’s Over”.
The audio was recorded live in Glasgow at the Old Fruitmarket Concert Hall where Eldredge and his band performed it for the very first time. He performed the song throughout his European tour, ultimately shooting the video at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
“I heard this song a year or two ago and I just love how unique of an artist she is and the complex nature of the songs she writes,” Eldredge explained. “I love how emotional and intense they are and could tell she had to grow up fast and really puts her life out there in her music. I think that’s a powerful thing to be that young and to have found your voice, and it speaks to people of all ages.
For whatever reason, when people hear my cover of this song, I think they’d say to themselves ‘I didn’t see that coming at all’ but that’s exactly what I wanted because when I heard it I thought ‘Man, I could do something special with this.’ I’m so grateful for the song that she’s written here and grateful to be able to sing it.”
