Billie Eilish wants her second album to showcase a more mature and global side to her music.
The 18-year-old continued her meteoric rise to fame when her debut LP When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? won the Album of the Year prize at the Grammy Awards on Sunday (January 26, 2020), one of five she landed in total.
Speaking with Australian radio station Triple J, Billie revealed that she and her brother and writing partner Finneas are hard at work on the follow-up – and fans can expect a different and eclectic record.
“I have this good feeling about the next album. It’s not done yet… But I have a good feeling about working on it,” Billie said. “I think we’re going to have a really fun time because we’ve matured and got to know ourselves better and the way we like to work, me and my brother. I think we’ll write this album all over the place.”
Revealing the origins of one track, she added: “One of the songs that we’ve almost finished is one that we wrote half of in Berlin, half of in London, and a part of in Australia. So, we haven’t even written any in (her hometown) LA.”
The Bad Guy hitmaker continued: “We only have a few songs and they’re really different from each other, we’re not really trying to sound like anything it’s just whatever we feel we’ve been making. We’ll keep doing that, feeling something and going with it.”
Fans will not have to wait for the new album to hear new music, however, as the teenage superstar has also created the theme to the new James Bond movie, No Time to Die.
Describing how landing the gig blindsided herself and Finneas, she said: “We never got a letter, or email, or text or anything that was like ‘you got the Bond song!’ The official ‘you got it’ was us announcing it.”
