Billie Eilish surprised fans with a 15-second video clip for her upcoming single “Happier Than Ever.” It’s short, sweet, and defiantly leaves onlookers wanting more. Featuring Eilish rocking blond locks and a fixed gaze, the words “when I’m away from you / I’m happier than ever…” are heard.
Eilish has been dropping hints for the last few weeks, posting on Instagram, “Things are comingggg.” Fans are excited, especially after her 2019 release of “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” Since her last album, she’s released songs like “Therefore I Am,” a fan favorite. The song’s release followed with a video directed by, at the time, just 18-years-old and a 5-time Grammy Award winner. The musician’s fanbase soared through the roof, and her success took her around the world. She took a break from the studio and tours, halting much of her planned appearances due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Just like the rest of the world, Eilish enjoyed downtime, using the pandemic as an excuse to get creative. In an interview with TV host Stephen Colbert, she admitted, “I don’t think I would’ve made the same album, or even the album at all if it weren’t for Covid.” Eilish explained that she felt different and was affected, like everyone, toying with emotions that rose from the “new normal” Covid forced us to adapt.
When asked about specifics, Eilish shared that “tricks” will appear on this album, where she shares more of her vocal abilities. For her, “it’s really just about what I feel like sounds good.” Fans flooded social media praising the video clip, which already has millions of views, shares, and retweets.
