Billie Eilish announces debut album and shares new single 'Bury a Friend'
By NME Magazine
It's called 'When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?'
Billie Eilish has announced her debut album and confirmed that her next single drops today (January 30).
The Canadian singer-songwriter’s album, ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’, will follow her debut EP, ‘Don’t Smile at Me’ (2017) and a string of standalone singles.
A release date for her debut album has not been announced though Eilish has shared the cover art: a photo of her with blank eyes sitting on the edge of a bed.
Yesterday (January 29) the 17-year-old teased the album’s title track – released today at 5pm GMT – with a short video that shows her head being gripped by hands in black gloves.“What do you want from me? Why don’t you run from me? What are you wondering? What do you know?” she sings in the clip.
Earlier this month, Eilish was named as one of NME’s 100 best new artists set to dominate 2019.
In an interview with NME, the star spoke about tackling online sexism and admitted that being a woman in the spotlight has made her more susceptible to trolls.
She said: “If I was a guy and I was wearing these baggy clothes, nobody would bat an eye. There’s people out there saying, ‘Dress like a girl for once! Wear tight clothes you’d be much prettier and your career would be so much better!’ No it wouldn’t. It literally would not.”
