‘I’m In The Mood For Love’ was first published in 1935, and popularised by Frances Langford. It has since been covered by dozens of artists, with London’s version among the most popular.

Finneas also accompanied Eilish on guitar for live versions of ‘I Didn’t Change My Number,’ ‘NDA‘ and ‘Getting Older‘, from her recent album ‘Happier Than Ever’. You can see those performances below.

‘Happier Than Ever’ arrived last week. In a five star review, NME‘s El Hunt said that in “tackling fame and misogyny with old-timey Hollywood glamour, the star has repeated the success of her stellar debut – without repeating any of its tricks.”

It was reported earlier in the week that the album is outselling the rest of the UK’s top-10 albums combined.







Earlier today, meanwhile, a new teaser was revealed for Eilish’s upcoming Disney+ concert film Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles featuring an animated, ‘Disney-fied’ depiction of the singer.

Eilish originally announced the film in July. It will mark Eilish’s second release to streaming services this year, following the February release of her documentary The World’s A Little Blurry to Apple TV+.
