Billie Eilish announces sophomore album ‘Happier Than Ever’

The follow-up to 'When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?' drops July 30

Billie Eilish has announced her sophomore album, Happier Than Ever, which is set for release on July 30th.

Eilish took to social media on Monday (April 27th) to tease the collection with a cryptic video featuring a snippet of new music, as Eilish sits moodily in a chair before looking back at the camera. Now, Variety has revealed that billboards have been popping up in cities around the world that confirm the album’s title and release date.

Happier Than Ever will mark the follow-up to the 19-year-old horror pop artist’s debut, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, for which Eilish earned Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best New Artist at the Grammys.

Earlier this year on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Eilish revealed that, “I don’t think I would’ve made the same album, or even the album at all if it weren’t for COVID. That doesn’t mean it’s about COVID at all, it’s just that, when things are different in your life, you’re different. That’s just how it is. So, I have to thank COVID for that, and that’s about it.”
