The Strokes‘ new album The New Abnormal is nominated for Best Rock Album at next year’s Grammys, but the band just picked up an accolade that’s perhaps even more impressive.
Billie Eilish picked the New Abnormal song “At the Door” as her favorite song of 2020. The “bad guy” singer revealed her choice in a piece for Australia’s triple j radio.
“I wish I could put this whole album as my first choice,” Eilish said of The New Abnormal. “It’s been my favorite album in many years.”
“There is something about The Strokes, I don’t know what it is, man,” she added. “I love ‘At the Door,’ I love the melodies, I love the lyrics, I love everything about it. The Strokes hit a nerve.”
Eilish also listed songs by artists including Phoebe Bridgers, Dominic Fike, Drake and Jorja Smith among her favorites of 2020.
