Returning from her massively successful debut studio album ‘WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?,’ Billie Eilish is ready to drop her follow-up album ‘Happier Than Ever.’ The titles themselves are a clear contrast, and we can expect the themes to follow suit.
Billie Eilish announced her second studio album ‘Happier Than Ever’ on April 27, 2021, a day following the announcement of the lead single and the title track of the album. She also revealed the full tracklist of the album along with the album cover featuring the brand new hair color-blonde!
Billie Eilish grabbed five Grammy awards for her debut studio album including the coveted ‘Song of the Year,’ ‘Record of the Year,’ ‘Album of the Year,’ and ‘Best New Artist.’
Billie Eilish ‘Happier Than Ever’ Album Artwork
Looking at Billie Eilish with her brand new blonde hair on the album artwork, we question if she is really happier than ever?! For one thing, she is not smiling at all. Taking a closer look, we can actually see a couple teardrops on her right cheek. Tears of joy? No chance. Her weary eyes, staring into the distance with a blank glace, and her crossed arms tell us that she is really not happy. She is hurt, insecure, and hopeless. Is this the real theme of the album?

Most likely than not, Billie Eilish will focus a few songs on addressing a few controversies surrounding her since her explosive entrance into the music scene three years ago. Songs such as “Therefore I Am” have already addressed concerns on her body. Maybe, “Male Fantasy” is another song in the same direction.
In “Your Power,” Billie Eilish dives into the abusive relationship he had with her ex-boyfriend Brandon Adams. She sings about how his destructive behavior affected her mentally and forced her to call it quits between them.
The title track of the album, “Happier Than Ever,” is about the awakening after a brutal relationship has ended. It takes a lot of courage to realize that happiness only comes within.
