Billie Eilish Releases New Album, “Happier Than Ever”

Billie Eilish dropped her highly anticipated second album, Happier Than Ever on Friday. The singer kept herself busy during 2020 after she won Album of the Year for her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?.

The 19-year-old released a critically acclaimed documentary Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry in February and she also released five singles for her sophomore album. “My Future,” “Therefore I Am,” “Your Power,” “Lost Cause,” and “NDA” that all charted in the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100.

The singer got into a lot of controversies for the past few months; she was accused of queerbaiting, some racists comments from her past surfaced, and her alleged boyfriend has said many racist, sexist, and homophobic comments on his social media.

The controversy clearly didn’t affect Eilish much; she broke the record of the most pre-saved album ever on Apple Music with over 1.028 million pre-adds. The record was previously held by The Weeknd’s After Hours and Eilish herself with her debut album.

During an interview with Vevo, Eilish said that she wanted to create a “very timeless record” and the new album is inspired by jazz singers she listened to growing up such as Frank Sinatra, Julie London, and Peggy Lee.

To celebrate the release of the album, Eilish announced that a concert film, Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles, filmed at the Hollywood Bowl will be available to stream on Disney Plus on Sept. 3.
