Throughout the Fallon performance, Eilish jumps around, headbanging and occasionally air drumming along to the rowdy tune. The powerful performance accompanied the dynamic track perfectly. In an interview with Fallon, Eilish said that “Happier Than Ever” is the track that she’s most excited to perform live on her forthcoming world tour.
Watch Eilish’s “Happier Than Ever” performance on Fallon and check out the interview below.
“Happier Than Ever” is the title track to Eilish’s recently released sophomore album. The new record serves as the follow-up to When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?.
The opening track, “Getting Older,” will fill you with a sort of nostalgic melancholy. Eilish delivers stunning melodies that are beautiful in their restraint. She then launches into a grittier, smoother sound that feels more reminiscent of her first album on “I Didn’t Change My Number.” Channeling her quintessential smooth vocal delivery, Eilish croons atop a pulsing instrumental.
From the ethereal “Goldwing” to the existential “Everybody Dies,” get ready for an emotional journey. The title track is definitely a standout. It sees Eilish clapping back at anyone who ever held her down. “When I’m away from you, I’m happier than ever,” Eilish croons atop a guitar line.
