Since “ocean eyes” made Billie Eilish an overnight success in 2015 at the age of 14, we have been patiently waiting for the debut studio album by the now 17-year-old artist. Today, on January 20, 2019, Billie announced her debut studio album details. The title ‘WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?’ itself tells us a lot about what is to come. The album announcement was made with the premiere of the first official single “bury a friend” with a music video. Be prepared for nightmares!!!
The album artwork itself is a horror-show. We see Billie in all-white cothing–much like what you would see a patient of a mental institute would wear–flaunting an eerie smile. Worst of it all, her eyes are whitened–no eye balls. And this seems to be the overall theme of her entire upcoming album.
Billie Eilish spoke about the new album in an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats1 Radio;
“With this album, the main thing we tried to do was have every single song sound completely different than everything else. If you put 14 people who like different genres into a room and plop WHEN WE FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? in front of them, I want every single person in that room to like at least one song.”Billie Eilish on Beats1 Radio

As bizarre as the song names on this tracklist sound, there is only one song with a positive vibe: “i love you.” But as Billie spoke with Genius before, she has a “yucky” and “gross” feeling about love. So we can expect some kind of twist in those lyrics as well.
“when the party’s over” is a song about how love helps each other when the good days of the life are gone. On the other hand, “you should see me in a crows” speaks about Billie’s superiority. It’s a track about feeling like a boss and being a boss. So, she was not far off when she said that there will be music for all kinds of people in her new album.
Until the release of the album, we can expect a single or two to be released in the coming months. The new album is released through Darkroom and Interscope Records labels, and is expected to release on March 29, 2019. Stay tuned with Justrandomthings for more updates.
