Billie Eilish had a year for the record books in 2019. After dominating the top Spotify and Apple Music lists, Eilish made plenty of headlines. In addition, her world tour sold out within an hour and she was nominated for six Grammy Awards and is the youngest artist to be nominated for the four major categories. She was also just announced as the next artist to record a James Bond theme.
So, Eilish has garnered quite a following. It only makes sense that fans are already clamoring for any information regarding a followup to her debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? Well, Billie just gave us some more information.
Over the past weekend, Billie Eilish performed at the 2020 iHeartRadio ALTer EGO music festival. While there, she answered some questions about her outstanding year, her Grammy nominations and when fans can expect her sophomore album.
The Grammy Awards occur on Jan. 26, and Eilish will also perform at the show. She opened up about what it means to just be nominated, regardless of winning.
“I mean, winning any Grammy at all is like… Who would ever think you’d win a Grammy, you know what I mean,” Eilish says. “I’ve never thought, ‘Oh I’d win a Grammy someday!’ So, genuinely if I get anything I’ll be happy if I don’t I’m gonna be happy too, ’cause just to be nominated, what more could I ask for?”
When the topic of her next album came up, Billie Eilish was more than direct saying she can’t deliver something in 2020.
“This year? No, but I will be making it this year, Eilish states. “But next few years? It’s coming. When it’s made. It’s not made yet.”
Now we have our answers. Sorry, Billie Eilish fans, but we can’t expect the 18-year old icon to crank out bangers that quickly. Watch he full iHeartRadio interview below.
