Billie Eilish’s meteoric rise to global stardom has been nothing short of phenomenal and arguably unparalleled to date. Since her ‘Ocean Eyes’ debut, Billie has quietly, yet
unapologetically infiltrated the forefront of pop. Thanks to a growing legion of loyal followers across the globe, an EP that has sat in the Billboard Top 200 for more than 18 months now
and more than 5 billion combined streams globally, her tours have sold out consecutively around the world, and this week, the teenage marvel has confirmed she will be releasing her highly
anticipated debut album ‘WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?’ on March 29 via Darkroom/Interscope Records.
Available to PRE-ORDER now, the news comes with a brand new official music video and single, “bury a friend.” Available worldwide on all digital platforms, the single was written and produced by Billie Eilish and her chief collaborator and elder brother Finneas O’Connell. Watch the haunting Michael Chaves directed video HERE.
“When we made ‘bury a friend,’ the whole album clicked in my head,” Billie explains. “I immediately knew what it was going to be about, what the visuals were going to be, and everything in terms of how I wanted it to be perceived. It inspired what the album is about. ‘bury a friend’ is literally from the perspective of the monster under my bed. If you put yourself in that mindset, what is this creature doing or feeling?” She continues. “I also confess that I’m this monster, because I’m my own worst enemy. I might be the monster under your bed too.”
'WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?' was written, produced and recorded entirely by 17-year-old Billie Eilish and brother Finneas in their childhood home of Highland Park, Los Angeles. Recorded in Finneas’ bedroom opposite Billie’s, the pair spent most of 2018 writing songs on the road, then spending many days and nights when off the road, at home, recording the album. The first to be revealed since the album announcement is “bury a friend,” a driving tour-de-force of a song, trailblazing its way into the world and sounding quite unlike anything else that’s out right now. Reaffirming Billie Eilish’s place, always ahead of the curve, never compromising her sound or vision.

“Bellyache” was recently featured in the current Music Issue of The New York Times Magazine’s “25 Songs That Tell Us Where Music Is Going.” The magazine applauded the young musician for her refreshing lyrics and songwriting technique, noting her EP “feels otherworldly: solidly electro-pop, her gentle voice juxtaposed with dark lyrics,” adding “our culture demands that young girls crave validation, but Eilish and her cast of characters feel no such thing. There are no apologies in her songs about the disappointments of love — only poetic quips about potential lovers tripping over knives or the subject of a song remorselessly burning the car of an ex-flame.”
Billie Eilish continues to dominate globally, with her second SOLD-OUT European, New Zealand, Australian and Singapore tours just completed and another SOLD-OUT North
American tour starting next week. The 16-year-old has also just announced she will also be making a pit-stop to Austin, Texas for this year’s SXSW Music Festival.

back with a new visual for her current single. In the Miles & AJ-directed clip, Eilish casually struts down a desolate road with her usual assertive swagger, pulling a red Radio Flyer and
two trash bags. Decked out in her trademark yellow, the young artist exudes a cool confidence, in perfect contrast to the steamy scenic desert backdrop. Watch the video for
Having just made her impressive SXSW debut in Austin and currently sitting at an impressive50+ million streams on her debut single, Billie has yet to announce a full tour or release an EP/album but has managed to capture the ears, heads and hearts of music fans and the media across the globe with her alluring and self-described “gloom-pop.”
Pop-phenom Billie Eilish has released her highly anticipated new single “Bellyache” today. Available on all digital platforms worldwide, this stellar new single is the third
official release to come from the 15-year-old American artist since entering the musical arena with her debut “Ocean Eyes.”
Currently sitting at an impressive 40+ million streams, Billie has yet to announce a tour, release an EP/album but has managed to capture the ears, heads and hearts of music fans and the media across the globe with her alluring and self-described “gloom-pop.”
Her meteoric rise first began after innocently uploading “Ocean Eyes” onto Soundcloud (so she could send the track to her dance teacher for an upcoming school recital). Unbeknownst to her, the song quickly caught the attention of influential blogs, went viral and soon became a veritable phenomenon, generating tens-of-millions of plays and gaining the attention and support from the likes Zane Lowe at Beats 1, Annie Mac of BBC Radio 1, Jason Kramer of KCRW.
Suddenly Billie was on the radio, receiving New Music Friday support from Spotify on a global scale and found herself being touted as ““Pop’s Next It Girl” by VOGUE Magazine. During Grammy weekend earlier this month Billie was featured as part of CBS’ Lexus Amazing Performances: Artist Spotlightalongside Grammy nominees Gallant and Lukas Graham.
Fast forward to 2017 and Billie is ready to invite us further into her world with “Bellyache,” a song she wrote in her bedroom with frequent collaborator and older brother Finneas O’Connell who produced the track at the home they grew up in, in Los Angeles.
“When I write, I try to become different characters,” Billie tells us. “You can write a song about being in love with someone, but you don’t have to be in love with anyone. You can write a song about killing someone, but you don’t have to have killed people. ‘Bellyache’ is about doing one of those things but it’s mostly about regret and guilt.” She continues. “Becoming a character can be really fun; to put yourself in a place you would never really be.”
In stark contrast to the songs suggestive dark subject matter, the single trots along to bright acoustic guitars and uplifting tempo before spinning out into a gloriously messy bass boom, accompanied with lyrics “sitting all alone, mouthful of gum in the driveway, my friends aren’t far, in the back of my car, lay their bodies…My V is for Vendetta. I thought that I’d feel better. Now I got a bellyache.”

"Like music, dance has always been my passion; a way to express how I feel. says Billie. “We originally recorded Ocean Eyes for a dance recital to be choreographed by my teacher Fred. We produced it
with a tempo and arrangement that would fit lyrical/contemporary dance thinking through every moment.” She continues. “I ended up being injured and wasn’t able to dance for a long time, so after all
that has happened with our music this year it is especially exciting to be able to do this video. Working with Fred and other dancers from the studio and just finally getting to dance again is
