Is Billie Eilish’s new album a flop? Listen to her newest songs
Billie Eilish is back in the public eye, and it’s all because of a new album. Well, we suppose Billie Eilish never really left the spotlight at all. The singer has created a consistent buzz since she broke through the mainstream and joined the ranks of household-named pop stars. This week, stories flooded headlines about the artist’s latest full length.
Billie Eilish has a new album dropping this week, but fans have already gotten a sneak peek at what the artist has been working on. With such a massive build-up in hype over the past few years, fans are wondering if they’ll be disappointed or totally fulfilled with Billie’s latest effort. So what’s the deal with Eilish’s newest song? Here’s what we found.
The past few weeks have revealed to fans Billie Eilish’s newest album is on the way. The record is titled Happier Than Ever, and fans have been waiting for the album since Eilish’s debut record dropped. Billie’s debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, came to audiences in 2019, and Billie Eilish stans have been hooked ever since.
Now, after several Grammy Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, and two Guinness World Records, Billie Eilish has moved from break-out to star to seasoned talent. Everyone knows who Billie Eilish is, but fans have way less info about the direction she’ll go with her newest album and the songs the record holds.
Happier Than Ever
Last week, Billie Eilish did an interview for Vevo describing her plan when she went in the studio for Happier Than Ever and what ended up coming out.
In her interview from last week, Eilish described her effort for her upcoming records. She said she wanted to make a timeless album, and lists Julie London, Frank Sinatra, and Peggy Lee as major influences. She said the album’s cohesiveness is very important to her. Eilish is quoted saying, “a big goal for me is to make things feel like the same project but not like the same song over and over again”.
Billie went on in the interview to get into even deeper detail about her upcoming record. The artist is quoted saying, “I think that this album was made in a very perfect time for me creatively”. She went on to say “it was just so fun and easy and calm”. With such cryptic descriptions for the new record, fans are wondering which single will best encapsulate Happier Than Ever. Lucky for us, Billie has picked a winner.
Billie Eilish appears to have gotten comfortable in her growing fame, as she alludes to stardom in the title of her new single “NDA”. For those not in the know, NDA stands for a non-disclosure agreement (you know, something you might have to sign after spending time with a celeb).
The video for “NDA” dropped on July 9th, and the newest song from Billie Eilish is quite the mood. Eilish cooly quips in the song “had a pretty boy over but he couldn’t stay, on his way out made him sign an NDA”.
The video for the new single is so dark you’ll have to turn your laptop brightness up, and features Billie walking down a wide-open road in the middle of the night. We see people following behind her, then disappear. Do they represent the specter of fame following the young pop star? We aren’t sure, but we’ll definitely check out Happier Than Ever when the album drops on Friday to find out.
