Billie Eilish supports Trevor Project with new track ‘wish you were gay’

Wish your were gay: Billie Eilish supports Trevor Project with release of new track.

LA-based singer songwriter Billie Eilish has released a new track called ‘wish you were gay’. She’s also donating a portion of proceeds from her clothing range to the Trevor Project for the next 48 hours.

The move is part of a joint campaign coincide with the single’s release and her upcoming new album due out at the end of this month.

The Trevor Project is an American organization aimed at preventing suicides among LGBTI youth.

Only available for next 48 hours

However, the merchandise, which includes t-shirts, caps, shorts and hoodies, is only available for the next 48 hours.

The new track is from the singer’s upcoming new album When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?

‘wish you were gay’ is about wanting to be with someone so bad it hurts, and not wanting to accept that this person doesn’t want you in return’, the star revealed.

‘At least if they were gay, I’d have a valid reason for their rejection and lack of interest in being with me. I wrote the song when I was 14 and madly in love with a boy. It’s supposed to be a fun and playful way at dealing with rejection.’

The 17 year-old star also released a video on YouTube to go with the track. ‘A Snippet Into Billie’s Mind – wish you were gay’ is the second of three episodes in a short-form mini-series available exclusively on YouTube.

Each episode will bring new insight into a song from her debut album, helping fans understand her process and shine new light on her music.
