After the coronavirus pandemic canceled her WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? tour last May, Billie Eilish used her newfound time to work on her next studio album with brother and producer FINNEAS.
Now, it looks like Eilish may have finally revealed just how many songs we can expect to hear on her sophomore LP.

So far, Billie Eilish has unveiled a few previews into her next album. Back in July, she debuted her emotional single “my future” along with an animated video. Then, in November, she treated fans to her carefree video for “Therefore I Am.” More recently, she dropped her highly-anticipated collaboration with Rosalía “Lo Vas A Olvidar” which premiered during a new episode of Euphoria. The tracks follow up 2019’s “everything i wanted” as well as her James Bond theme “No Time To Die.”
Despite the new music she’s released so far, FINNEAS previously revealed that fans shouldn’t expect to hear her full new album during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Billie’s album, and my album, they won’t be a bummer COVID record,” he said. “I have a desperate desire not to release them during COVID-19. It’s the vaccine record! I want it to be the album everyone’s out dancing in the streets to.”

Then, at the end of last year, Eilish seemingly confirmed that her new music era may be on the way. Back in December, she shared a series of Instagram Stories about the status of her new album and her iconic hair color.
It turns out, Eilish is preparing to change her hair after her new documentary The World’s A Little Blurry is released on Feb. 26. The official hair change will then mark the end of her WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE WE DO GO? era.
“I have a fun story to tell you, but first, fuck you guys,” she said. “Stop making fun of me oh my god, I’m fucking making you an album. I will not put it out if you keep making fun of my hair, shut up. I’m changing it after the doc [documentary] comes out, it will be the end of an era. I’m gonna give you a new era, I have announcements to make. I have some shit to put out. Anyway, it doesn’t matter. Leave me alone [and] let me live with my fucking hair that I’ve had for far too long.”

Although her next album doesn’t have a release date yet, Eilish is looking forward to fans finally hearing it when the time is right.
“I’m really, really happy that we’ve been able to make the things that we’re making,” she said. “And I can’t wait for you to hear this shit. I can’t wait to have the world hear. I’m very excited and hopeful for the future.”
Outside of her new music, Eilish has been candid about her rise to fame over the years. Last month, she shared why her loved ones cared more about that photo of her in a tank top than she did. As well, she also explained what she misses most about mosh pits as the pandemic continues to postpone and cancel festivals and concerts this year.
While we wait for Billie Eilish’s new album to arrive, her latest collab with Rosalía is available to stream below.
