So 2021 isn’t all bad. In fact, one of the best things to happen this year is the highly anticipated release of Billie Eilish’s new album happier than ever.
The buzz really all got going when Billie’s new British Vogue cover story came out. We’d been all waiting around for a while to know more about when Billie would be giving us her gift of more amazing music.
And now, we finally know. By the end of July, we will get to hear the new tunes from the great Billie herself! Her new album has a lot to live up to, with Billie’s previous masterpieces winning her multiple Grammys and worldwide fandom.
So what are we to expect from this upcoming album? Here is everything you should know about what went on behind the recording of Billie’s newest album.
1. It is only her second studio album
Yup, that’s right! This album will only be the second album she’s ever released. And it’s actually been a while since the first. Nearly two years and five months to be exact! Not that we’ve been counting or anything.
But it’s hard to remember that this will only be album number two for Billie, given all the success her first one had
2. There are a sweet total of sixteen songs
Sixteen is the sweetest number of them all, especially when that’s the grand total of new songs Billie has put on her newest album.
With teasers of some of the song titles that await our listening pleasure, these songs are looking to all be filled with deep lyrics, plenty of mystery, and a whole lot of sick beats! You can bet we will be listening closely to every second of every one of these sixteen songs!
3. The brother-sister duo are at it again
That’s right. The winning formula of Finneas and Billie isn’t going anywhere with this album. In fact, these two led the production of the album the entire way again—and all from their bedroom like before.
That means no other producers, no other songwriters, and no other singers. Talk about a powerful duo!
4. The pandemic sparked this album
Billie recently let out a little secret that she actually wasn’t planning on this album before the pandemic hit. But, a silver lining of the last year is that it inspired her to make album number two.
While the songs don’t have anything to do with the virus itself, it does represent how the pandemic changed Billie personally—with each song reflective of who she is based on the circumstances and experiences she is having. So we’d never thought we would actually ever say this, but thanks Covid!
5. You can get the album in a range of formats
Billie is unique and so are the ways in which you can experience this album! The second album will be available in a range of formats that include vinyl, cassette, CD, and online.
If you go for a physical format of the album, you will also be able to choose what color it comes in! Choices range from pink, brown, grey, and black.
Talk about a collector’s dream come true! When else will you be able to get an album in so many different formats? Time to dust off the old cassette player!
This preview of what we know went into the making of Billie’s second album can only foreshadow the absolute treat we are all in for come the end of July.
If anyone asks come August 1st what we have planned, we’ll be out of the office all day listening to happily ever after on repeat!
