In just four years, Billie Eilish has become one of the music industry’s greatest success stories, with an incredible 7 x GRAMMY wins and 10 x nominations. Her music has accumulated over 73 billion streams globally and 1.6 billion streams in Australia alone.
2021 has already been quite the year for the 19-year-old: single ‘Your Power’ debuted at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100, accruing more than 150 million streams in the first two weeks of release. In March, she took home 2 x GRAMMYs: Record of the Year for ‘everything i wanted’ and Best Song Written For Visual Media’ for her James Bond theme ‘No Time To Die’. In February, the ground-breaking documentary Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry premiered on Apple TV and chronicled Billie’s journey through the writing, recording and touring of her 2019 debut album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?. In May, Eilish made her book debut with BILLIE EILISH, a stunning visual journey featuring hundreds of never-before-seen photos, offering readers a personal glimpse into her childhood and her life on tour.
Debuting at #1 on Album Charts worldwide in July 2021, new album Happier Than Ever… “fully establishes Eilish as one of her generation’s most significant pop artists”, wrote NME in their 5-star review. Rolling Stone called it “heroically honest”, while DIY Mag noted it’s “not just a triumph in progressing a signature sound into new territories, but a lesson in how to own your reality with confidence and class.” Closer to home, triple j touted the album’s title track as “a stunner that’s possibly Billie’s strongest performance to date”, with the Sydney Morning Herald calling the album a “revealing and rewarding, listening experience”.
Weaving razor-sharp wit, everyday observations, secrets and escapades, Happier Than Ever explores what it means to be a complex human being, navigating the modern world. Eilish has delivered her rawest, most confessionary work to date.
One of the most crucial pop artists of our time, on September 3 this year Eilish made her Disney+ debut with Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles – a cinematic concert experience, filmed on the stage of the legendary Hollywood Bowl and featuring an intimate performance of every song on Happier Than Ever in sequential order, performed for the first and only time.
On her Happier Than Ever, The World Tour, Eilish will continue her work with sustainability partner REVERB, with the fan-facing Billie Eilish Action Village at each show. It will focus on climate action and climate justice, hosting and supporting local and global environmental organizations as well as a comprehensive program via REVERB’s Music Climate Revolution campaign. In addition to reducing the tour’s environmental footprint, the initiative will support projects that directly and measurably eliminate greenhouse gases. These collective efforts will make the tour Climate Positive; eliminating significantly more emissions than the tour creates.
