Billie Eilish announces 3rd WHAT?


Billie is everywhere!

2023 has unquestionably been Billie Eilish‘s year. Eilish’s music seems to be playing in the background everywhere you go — and many people aren’t complaining. Songs like “What Was I Made For?” and “When The Party’s Over” are personal and fun to listen to. Since Eilish’s second studio album, “Happier Than Ever,” was published two years ago, fans have been waiting for new details regarding her third album. Eilish had previously teased her third album, but it has only recently been obvious that fans may expect new music from the singer shortly.


Eilish came on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on December 14 to discuss her experience working on the Barbie music alongside Finneas and Greta Gerwig. Fans in the audience erupted when Fallon asked if Eilish was working on a new album. Eilish revealed that her third album is “almost done” and that fans will “know more” about it soon.

Fans have been clamoring for more music from Eilish since she dropped “What Was I Made For” for Greta Gerwig’s Barbie. Despite the fact that the song was only a feature single on the Barbie soundtrack, it struck a chord with many people and peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“‘I really want Barbie’s heart song,’ [Gerwig] said. That kind of stuck with us. “That stuck with us,” Fallon said of the Grammy winner.”I feel like [the song] brought women together in this way that I feel like I haven’t felt part of like that,” she said. “It made me feel really good.”


Eilish hinted some of the musical inspirations for the third album in a radio interview with BBC Radio 1. Eilish cited Radiohead, Deftones, Dominic Fike, Mazzy Star, and My Bloody Valentine as influences. In contrast to “Happier Than Ever,” which contained more 50s-inspired sounds, Eilish’s third album clearly takes a different path.

Still waiting …

During an interview with The Cookout in September 2023, Eilish mentioned being in the final stages of the third album. “We’re in the final stages of making it, so that doesn’t mean it’s about to come out, but it’s getting there and it’s very exciting,” Eilish said about the album when questioned about it.

With 2023 coming to a close, we can add one more thing to our list of things to look forward to in 2024: a new album from Eilish.
