In fact, the song's full official title is "When I Was Older (Music Inspired By The Film Roma)". But Eilish has adopted the tiniest bits and pieces of the movie on the way to arriving at something that ends up far afield in every way but mood.

17-year-old singer/songwriter Billie Eilish has today released a brand new song 'When I Was Older.' The song is inspired by Alfonso Cuarón's Spanish-language film 'Roma'. "Having access to the sounds used in the film proved to be invaluable", she and O'Connell said in a statement.

"The chorus has the ocean sounds overplayed on it", the duo added. "Nothing about this song would exist without the film, which is exactly what we love about it".

"When I Was Older", Eilish's new song, does not come from the Roma soundtrack.

Billie Eilish released her debut EP, Don't Smile at Me, in August of 2017, as she has already accumulated more than 132 million streams on Spotify. Across seas, Billie is the first worldwide artist to be awarded a BRIT Breakthrough Award for her debut EP in the United Kingdom and is the youngest artist to ever get listed in the prestigious BBC Radio 1 sound polls. Late previous year, she released the singles "Come Out And Play" and 'When The Party's Over'.

But Eilish, bathing her voice in a digital tone, does sing about "watching movies back to back in black and white", seemingly as she mentally exorcises someone from her system.

ROMA illustrates the journey of a domestic worker through political turmoil in 1970s Mexico. This is Cuarón's first project since the groundbreaking Gravity in 2013.
