Billie Eilish surprised the world on Tuesday when she announced that her brand new album, Happier Than Ever, will be dropping this summer, and fans are getting crazy! Read more below!
"This is my favorite thing I've ever created and I am so excited and nervous and EAGER for you to hear it."
This came after Billie teased a snippet of a song on Monday, which has already racked up more than 17 million views and immediately started trending on Twitter.
Happier Than Ever marks Billie's first album since her debut — When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? — was unleashed into the world back in 2019, cementing the singer as a force in the music industry.
She went on to win five of the six Grammys she was nominated for last year, which included the four biggest awards of the night: Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best New Artist. She also won Best Pop Vocal Album.
Her win was historic, making her only the second person in history to sweep The Big Four, and the youngest person to do so. She's also the youngest person to win Album of the Year since Taylor Swift in 2010.
She added a sixth and seventh Grammy to her tally back in March, when she won Record of the Year for the second year running after also bagging the award for Best Song Written for Visual Media with her James Bond track "No Time To Die".
But Happier Than Ever also appears to mark a complete reinvention for Billie, flipping the dark and haunting world of her first album into something brighter and more carefree.
For the era of her debut album, Billie dyed her hair black with slime-green roots, offering up horror-film-like visuals, artwork and music videos along the way.
The title of the new album is the most obvious sign that Billie is in a positive place in her life right now, something she's previously spoken about in interviews.
Calling happiness a "crazy" feeling in a 2019 interview with Elle, the singer said: "I haven't been happy for years. I didn't think I would be happy again. And here I am — I've gotten to a point where I'm finally OK."
"It's not because I'm famous. It's not because I have a little more money," she went on.
"It's so many different things: growing up, people coming into your life, certain people leaving your life. All I can say now is, for anybody who isn't doing well, it will get better. Have hope."
"Now I love what I do, and I'm me again."
And based on the reaction to the news — more than 11 million likes on Instagram, instantly trending on Twitter — it looks like fans can't wait to enter Billie's new world. Happier Than Ever drops July 30th. The next single from the album will be released on Thursday.
