Billie Eilish has already been teasing a new era, leaving behind her signature lime green tips in favor of a slightly older, bleached blonde look. Now, the megastar has shared a clip of “Happier Than Ever,” which has a stripped-down, acoustic sound to complement the singer’s new look.
Posted to Instagram, the under ten second clip features the blonde-banged Eilish leaning back in a scalloped beige chair, looking insouciantly into the camera as her new song plays: “When I’m away from you/I’m happier than ever.”
Eilish has only spoken briefly about her highly-anticipated sophomore album, the follow up to 2019’s smash hit When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? In February, she told Stephen Colbert that while made during the pandemic, the album won’t address COVID, but rather “really just about what I feel like sounds good.” Here’s what we know so far:
Billie Eilish’s sophomore album will be titled Happier Than Ever.
Billie is back, she’s blonde, and she’s moving on.
Happier Than Ever will be released July 30.
In both an Instagram post and on billboards around Los Angeles, Eilish announced that the album will drop on July 30, 2021.
“[T]his is my favorite thing i’ve ever created and i am so excited and nervous and EAGER for you to hear it,” Eilish wrote. “[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.”
The first single is out April 29.
Eilish added that a new song will be out Thursday, April 29 at 9 a.m. — presumably the one teased on her Instagram.
