Finneas Dedicates New Song 'To All Who Have Had To Endure This Year'
September 3, 2020
It's been a hard year for everyone, and especially for those personally affected by racial injustice and/or the coronavirus pandemic. On Wednesday (September 2), FINNEAS shared a new song called "What They'll Say About Us" that he "dedicated to all who have had to endure this year."
“I wrote this song in June after spending the day at a protest in Downtown LA, filled with hope with the prospect that millions of people were coming together from all over the world to fight against institutionalized racism and inequality," he explained. "During that time, I’d also been following Amanda Kloots as she documented her husband Nick Cordero’s time in the ICU while in a coma after being admitted for COVID-19."
"Imagining her sitting by his side, waiting, hopeful for him to wake up, it got me thinking about all the millions of people, all over the world, who also have loved ones, parents, children and extended family members going through the same thing," the singer-songwriter continued. "Fighting this horrific virus. Some will overcome and wake up again, while others, tragically may not. This song is dedicated to all who have had to endure this year. I hope this song can offer some sort of comfort to those who may need it.”

Last week FINNEAS and his sister Billie Eilish recreated NPR's iconic Tiny Desk setup for a special at-home performance of "My Future" and "Everything I Wanted." The siblings also performed during the Democratic National Convention and have been vocal about the importance of voting in the November election.
