Billie Eilish just announced a bunch of new details about her upcoming album, including its name and release date, and Olivia Rodrigo revealed that she couldn’t wait to collab with Billie — Let’s get into it.
On Monday, Billie teased on her IG what seems to be a snippet of the upcoming music video for her new single titled ‘Happier than Ever.’ In the 15 second clip, not only do we get a good look at Billie rocking her new blonde hair, but we also get a taste of the new track she’s dropping later this week. “When I’m away from you/I’m happier than ever.”
And on Tuesday, Billie unveiled the cover art of her new album, also titled ‘Happier Than Ever, as she also announced its official release date in the caption. She wrote, “MY NEW ALBUM ‘Happier Than Ever OUT JULY 30TH! This is my favorite thing I’ve ever created, and I am so excited and nervous and EAGER for you to hear it. I can’t even tell you. I’ve never felt so much love for a project as I do for this one. I hope you feel what I feel. Also, a new song out Thursday at 9 am PT too!!”
A lot of Billie’s fans and Ariana Grande’s believe that Billie, who’s a self-proclaimed Arianator, was inspired by Ari’s cover art of her 2018 album Sweetener, pointing out that they both bare a striking resemblance in their color scheme and pose. And the titles of all 16 tracks that make up this new album were made available on Apple Music, including Billie’s latest singles ‘Therefore I Am’ and ‘My Future.’
This is how we found out that Billie once again penned all of the songs with the help of her big bro Finneas who also produced all of the music. It’s worth noting that Billie left out her collab with Rosalía ‘Lo Vas a Olvidar’ even though she uploaded it to her YouTube channel back in January. And speaking of collaborations… Olivia Rodrigo recently made an appearance on ELLE magazine’s YouTube channel for a game of Song Association.
During a break in between rounds, Olivia was asked about her dream collaboration with an artist of her choice, and this is what she had to say about it: “I think it’d be really cool to collaborate with Billie Eilish. I think everything she does is just spectacular. I love her first EP, I fell deeply in love with that project.” Olivia went on to add that Billie’s song ‘my boy’ is one of her favorites because “it’s genius, clever and fun.”
And Olivia also recently left Billie a vast “OMG” comment on her IG post showing off the cover art for Happier Than Ever. So now we just have to sit back and let the universe do its thing to make this Billie-Olivia collab a reality…
In the meantime, stay here to see Selena Gomez vibing with her new blonde look while rapping to a Saweetie-Doja Cat song. And also, let us know in the comments which title on Billie’s new album’s tracklist caught your eye the most. I’m excited for Male Fantasy- it’s the last track on the album, so you know it’s going to be good.
