Billie Eilish took to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where she teased her new album and discussed her upcoming documentary, The World’s A Little Blurry.
In the interview, Eilish explains that quarantining due to COVID-19 has caused her to take the first extended break she’s had in four years, and she took that time to make an album.
“I don’t think I would’ve made the same album, or even the album at all, if it weren’t for COVID,” Eilish says. “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.”

Eilish also talked about her forthcoming documentary, The World’s A Little Blurry, which arrives on Apple TV+ on February 26th, revealing how strange it was to live with cameras around her all the time for about three years. “I think it’s important to know, though, as an audience member of a doc… it’s not everything. You’re seeing a sliver of my life at that time,” Eilish continues.
Eilish will also be hosting a special premiere event for free on the Apple TV and Apple Music apps. The event will feature “special video packages from the film” alongside an interview with director R.J. Cutler and “an intimate conversation” with Eilish.
Hosted by Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, the event will take place on February 25th at 9:00 p.m. EST.
