FINNEAS has premiered the video for “Only a Lifetime,” a track off his new album, Optimist.

The clip stars the older O’Connell sibling as he wanders throughout an empty aquarium until the end, when he’s joined by his sister, Billie Eilish, and what appears to be their parents.

“A lot of people were pacing around their houses, praying for lockdown to be lifted, and waiting for the vaccine,” FINNEAS says. “I had a sudden realization — I might really miss this calm time I had with my family and my girlfriend.”

“Only a Lifetime,” FINNEAS shares, reflects him “trying to remind myself to stay present and stay engaged no matter what is going on.”

You can watch the “Only a Lifetime” video streaming now on YouTube.

Optimist, FINNEAS’ first full-length solo effort, was released this past October. He’s nominated for Best New Artist at the 2022 Grammys.
