Billie Eilish in ‘final stages’ of new album

Billie Eilish, the renowned artist behind hits like “What Was I Made For?” and “Happier Than Ever,” is currently in the final stages of crafting her highly anticipated new album. While she hasn’t set a release date for this upcoming project, she has assured fans that there’s plenty of fresh music on the horizon.

Billie Eilish gave a tantalizing glimpse into the progress of her new album, describing it as an exciting journey. She’s once again collaborating with her brother and musical partner, Finneas, for her third studio effort. Their creative partnership has been instrumental in her previous successes.

Billie Eilish acknowledges that she has undergone significant personal and artistic growth since her debut album, ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?,’ which achieved record-breaking success. She has experienced a “big jump” in her life and career between the ages of 18 and 21, and this transition has influenced her music-making process.

Reflecting on the changes, Billie shared, “Everything is different about it. I’ve been trying to compare recently, just because I’m getting used to doing it in a different way. And trying to be like, ‘It’s OK to do that. I’m OK. I’m still able to do that; I’m capable still.'”

One significant shift she pointed out was the transition from creating music in her childhood home to working in Finneas’ basement studio, a change that was particularly evident in her last album, ‘Happier Than Ever.’ Initially, they felt they had “figured out” their creative process. However, a year-and-a-half of touring and the natural growth that comes with aging presented new challenges.

Billie explained, “We were like, ‘We’ve got it all figured out, this is how we’re going to do it from now on, and it works really well.’ And, you know, touring for a year-and-a-half, then coming back to it, and being way older – and not even much older, but again, the jump between 18 and 21 is a big jump.”

One aspect of this transition that Billie found particularly challenging was the changes in her own voice. She admitted that she initially feared she had “lost it” as her vocals evolved. She elaborated on this, saying, “The way that I exist in the room is different, my voice has completely changed since then… The voice-changing thing is a trip! It’s all kind of shocking.”

However, Billie Eilish has come to accept these changes as a part of her artistic journey. She acknowledged the difficulty of embracing change after having been successful with a particular approach for so long, but she recognizes that it’s a necessary part of her growth as an artist.

As Billie Eilish enters the final stages of creating her new album, fans can anticipate not only a fresh musical direction but also a deeper exploration of her evolving artistry, all while she continues to break new ground in the world of music.

Her debut studio album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? was released on March 29, 2019, and peaked at number one in 15 countries around the world.

Billie Eilish’s net worth is $30 million.
