BILLIE Eilish is back with her sophomore album after her debut record When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
Billie's first album came out in March 2019 and earned her 10 Grammys, and fans have been waiting for more music from the singer since.
When is Billie Eilish's new album Happier Than Ever being released?
Billie released her second studio album at midnight on July 30, 2021.
The record is titled Happier than Ever, which contradicts the image of the star on the cover.
The album art shows a blonde Billie wearing a white sweater with her arms wrapped around herself and tears running down her face.
What did Billie Eilish say about her new album?
The 19-year-old celebrated the release of the album with a lengthy Instagram post about the project.
The caption read, “Happier Than Ever” my sophomore album is finally out. i can’t even process it. this was the most fulfilling most satisfying and profound experience i’ve ever had with my music.
"finneas and i were just on cloud 9 making this album i feel.. i love every song on this project so so much it literally scares me thinking about putting it out into the world for anyone to listen to.
"i feel like crying. i grew so much in the process of making this album and experienced so much self realization and self reflection. i wish i could go back and make this album all over again because it was some of the best nights in my life.
"i love you @finneas thank you for being you. i couldn’t ask for a better brother and collaborator, you are my whole world and i couldn’t do any of this without you. anyway i’m so excited and nervous and blaaah… please take care of this project, it means the world to me. 🤍 I CANT BELIEVE ITTTT."
Billie also spoke about the album earlier in July with Vevo, saying "I wanted to make a very timeless record that wasn't just timeless in terms of what other people thought, but really just timeless for myself.
"I gathered a lot of inspiration from a lot of older artists that I grew up loving … mostly Julie London, and a lot of Frank Sinatra and Peggy Lee."
"The main thing that I would hope is, for people to hear what I say, and then go, 'Oh, God, I feel like that I didn't know that I felt like that. But this is how I feel,' and maybe make a change in their life that makes them happier."
"I don't want to get too specific, because I think it's really for the listener to decide, I don't want to put the ideas into their brains, because I want them to feel 100% that their own interpretation is the right interpretation."
