Multi-Grammy Award-winning singer, Billie Eilish announced her new album, Happier Than Ever via an Instagram post yesterday. The follow-up to 2019’s When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? will be released on July 30 through Darkroom/Interscope Records.
Happier Than Ever was written with her brother, FINNEAS, who also produced the record. The two have collaborated on almost every release since her debut single, Six Feet Under, back in 2016.
The album also marks a new era for the singer, known for her outrageous hair colours. This time, Eilish is coming through with a traditional blonde look, which as the new album cover shows, goes perfectly with a 1950s aesthetic as she holds herself in tears.
Happier Than Ever‘s second single, my future, will also be released tomorrow. It marks the first release since last years Therefore I Am, which went to number 1 in the U.S.
At just 19 years old, Eilish is also the first person born in the 21st Century to have a number 1 album with When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
Still very little is known about the direction the new LP will take.

Eilish said in her Instagram post that it’s her favourite thing she’s ever created, and that she’s “so excited and nervous and EAGER for you to hear it. i can’t even tell you. i’ve never felt so much love for a project than i do for this one. hope you feel what i feel.”
In an interview with Stephen Colbert in February, Eilish revealed how the COVID-19 pandemic had impacted the artistic direction of Happier Than Ever, noting that the changes she’s experienced have undoubtedly influenced the album.

“I don’t think I would’ve made the same album, or even the album at all, if it weren’t for COVID. That doesn’t mean it’s about COVID at all, it’s just that, when things are different in your life, you’re different. That’s just how it is. So, I have to thank COVID for that, and that’s about it.”
Happier Than Ever is available for preorder here.
