The Los Angeles native released her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? in March 2019, including tracks You Should See Me In A Crown, When The Party’s Over, Bury A Friend, Wish You Were Gay, Bad Guy and All The Good Girls Go To Hell.
Eilish most recently unveiled the latest track to soundtrack the James Bond film series, No Time To Die.
When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? has proved a huge commercial smash, topping the charts in the US, Australia, Canada and the UK amongst others.
The album was also well-received critically with NME describing the release as “a memorable and game-changing debut record”, in a five star review.
Shortly after the release of her debut, Eilish set out on tour, headlining Coachella Festival in Indio, California as well as performing to sell out arena crowds in Australia, New Zealand and across the US.
Billie spent last summer performing at festivals across Europe, including UK stops at Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Glastonbury and Reading and Leeds.
Aerial shots taken of her crowd at Reading Festival went viral, with many speculating that it was the biggest turnout for a performance in the festival’s history.
Eilish first broke through in 2016 when she uploaded the track Ocean Eyes to Soundcloud. The song received huge attention online, gaining her a huge following and a deal with Interscope Records.
Many fellow artists have declared themselves to be fans of Eilish including Justin Bieber, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, Elton John, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Dave Grohl, who in an interview with Variety said: “The connection she has with her audience is the same thing that happened with Nirvana in 1991. People say, ‘Is rock dead?’ When I look at someone like Billie Eilish, rock and roll is not close to dead”.
