Billie Eilish released her highly anticipated album ‘Happier Than Ever’ on Darkroom/Interscope/Polydor Records last Friday to critical acclaim globally, and immediately topped the album charts in both the UK and US as well as fifteen other countries worldwide. The 16-track full-length proves to be another welcomed triumph for popular music. A combination of non-fiction and fantasy, Eilish steps out into the limelight as one of the most treasured, talented and intricate songwriters of her generation. Weaving razor-sharp wit, everyday observations, secrets and escapades, all-the-while exploring what it is to be a complex human being, navigating the modern world. Listeners will be left enchanted and captivated by this new chapter, as she delivers her rawest, most confessionary work to date.
 
The album’s essence, artwork and color palette was inspired by some of her all-time favorite recording artists Julie London, Frank Sinatra and Peggy Lee, and the 1950’s and 60’s “golden era” that they reigned. Produced by her brother FINNEAS at his home studio in Los Angeles, ‘Happier Than Ever’ solidifies Billie Eilish once again, as one of the most crucial pop artists of our time. Listen to ‘Happier Than Ever’ HERE.
 
Accompanying the release of ‘Happier Than Ever’ was the goose-bump-inducing music video for her latest single and album namesake, which debuted on the UK Official Singles Chart at number 6. The video was directed by Eilish and perfectly captures the spirit of the track. Watch the official music video for ‘Happier Than Ever’ HEREBillie also performed ‘Happier Than Ever’ for the first time last night on Jimmy Fallon – watch her incredible performance HERE.
 
Billie will tour the UK and Europe next summer, in an almost entirely sold-out run of dates, including six nights at The O2 in London.

Billie Eilish is also the youngest artist to write and record an official James Bond theme song, ‘No Time To Die.’ Most recently, Billie Eilish was nominated for four additional awards at the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards in 2021, and took home both Record of the Year for ‘everything i wanted,’ and Best Song Written For Visual Media for ‘No Time To Die.’ Billie Eilish’s latest album ‘Happier Than Ever’ was written by Billie and her brother FINNEAS, who also produced the album.
