Billie Eilish and Finneas Teach Letterman Vocal Production

Billie Eilish and Finneas give David Letterman a lesson in the intricacies of vocal production in a clip from Eilishโ€™s episode of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, which premiered today, May 20, on Netflix.

In the clip, Eilish explains that she crafts her studio vocals through a process called โ€œcompingโ€: Rather than just singing the song all the way through and using that, Eilish records a tonne of takes and โ€œmakes sure thereโ€™s something usableโ€ in each one for every part of the song. After all the takes are laid down, Eilish and Finneas essentially stitch the best parts into the final performance thatโ€™s heard on the record.

To illustrate this, Finneas pulls up the ProTools session with Eilishโ€™s final vocal on โ€œHappier Than Ever,โ€ which features a tonne of dark lines peppered through the file. Each strike represents the start of a different take, and as the song plays, Letterman watches in awe as Eilish notes how many takes were put together to create the song: โ€œAnd you would never know!โ€ she exclaims.

Speaking for probably everyone, Letterman notes, โ€œTo hear your voice in this context is a little bizarre because Iโ€™m looking at things there representing, actually, the voice. Iโ€™m hearing the voice, which is, โ€˜Oh my God.โ€™ And youโ€™re just sitting right there. Itโ€™s a little crazy.โ€
