"When the Party's Over" (stylized in all lowercase) is a song by American singer-songwriter Billie Eilish. The song was released on October 17, 2018 through Darkroom and Interscope Records. It serves as the second single to her debut studio album.

Music video[edit]

The music video was released on October 25, 2018. The video starts with Eilish sitting in a blank room, before gulping down a cup filled with black liquid. Black tears start flowing down her cheek, staining her outfit in the process. Towards the end of the video, the camera pans downwards, revealing that the black liquid started to stain the floor. Eilish claims that her inspiration for the video came from a fan art of a drawing of her with black eyes leaking. "I thought it was visually really dope and I wanted to physically create it."[1] It was directed by Carlos López Estrada.[2]
