02 SEPTEMBER 2021 (TORONTO, ON) - Eight-time GRAMMY® Award-winning musician, songwriter, and producer FINNEAS returns today with, ‘The 90s’, another song taken from his forthcoming debut album, Optimist, set for release on October 15 via Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
‘The 90s’ is FINNEAS’ heartfelt look back at a decade where things seemed simpler, a world without the internet and smartphones, and a desire to return to those times. Watch the official video, directed by Sam Bennett and choreographed by Monika Felice Smith HERE.
Optimist features 12 brand new tracks, plus the previously released, “What They’ll Say About Us,” FINNEAS’ heartbreaking ballad, written in lockdown as a moving dedication to human strength and connection when faced with life’s tribulations. Earlier this month, FINNEAS shared the incredible video for “A Concert Six Months From Now”, filmed on location at the iconic Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Watch the video HERE.

2021 has gifted fans around the world with a string of unforgettable television performances from the young maestro. Earlier this year, FINNEAS joined forces with friend and collaborator, Ashe, on their epic ballad “Till Forever Falls Apart.” The duo performed a gorgeous live rendition of the track on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live this past spring (WATCH), and American Idol (WATCH). Other highlights include a captivating live acoustic performance of “Can’t Wait To Be Dead” on CBS’ The Late Late Show [WATCH] and CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert [WATCH], and a moving live rendition of “What They’ll Say About Us” on ABC’s Good Morning America [WATCH], each one directed by Arturo Perez Jr. Last year saw a steady stream of stellar releases from the talented young artist, including his first holiday song (“Another Year”), which followed two fiery anthems “Where The Poison Is” [LISTEN] and “Can’t Wait To Be Dead” [LISTEN].
Earlier this year, FINNEAS received two additional GRAMMY® Awards with his sister Billie Eilish for ‘everything i wanted’ (Record of the Year), as well as a Best Song Written For Visual category for “No Time To Die,” the official James Bond theme song, both produced by FINNEAS.
His upcoming debut album follows the release of FINNEAS’ critically acclaimed debut EP, Blood Harmony, the DELUXE version which is available now. Written and produced entirely by the 24-year-old artist, the eight-track collection exemplifies his skills as a songwriter, producer and storyteller.
In 2020, FINNEAS received an impressive 6 GRAMMY Awards® including the prestigious Producer of the Year, Non-Classical and Best Engineered Album, Non Classical as well as Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year with his sister Billie Eilish for her groundbreaking No. 1 debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? and hit single ‘bad guy.’
