Billie Eilish has let us know that ‘things are coming’ in her latest IG post. Could it mean that her much anticipated new album is on the way?
Back in February, Billie revealed that she was ‘almost done’ with her second album. It was around this time that Billie first divulged recording a new album in COVID-19 lockdown, while talking to Stephen Colbert on The Late Show.
She said: “I don’t think I would’ve made the same album, or even the album at all, if it weren’t for COVID. […] There was a period of time, a month ago or something, we were just texting the label like, ‘Song done, another song done, another song done.’
The nineteen year old pop star has said that the follow-up to her record-breaking 2019 debut LP ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ will likely include 16 tracks.
Billie has told fans that she looks forward to entering “a new era” in 2021. She has even debuted a new look, swapping her signature neon green highlights for a more classic platinum blonde.
She also suggested that she may be exploring new territory with her music and expanding her vocal stylings. In her monthly feature with Vanity Fair, Billie says: “There’s a couple of moments on this album where I pull some tricks out. […] t’s really just about what I feel like sounds good.”
So far, since her 2019 album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? was released, Billie has released four singles. These include ‘Everything I Wanted’, ‘No Time to Die’, ‘Therefore I Am’ and a duet with Rosalía, called Lo Vas a Olvidar, which was part of the soundtrack of hit US TV series Euphoria. It is unclear whether any of these singles will be featured on the new record, or if we can look forward to 16 brand new unheard tracks.
Until the new release, Eilish fans will have to wait patiently with anticipation and can enjoy Billie’s stunning blonde hair selfies in the meantime.
