Billie Eilish the platinum blonde delights fans with 10-second teaser of new track Happier Than Ever
Billie Eilish previewed new music on Monday as she shared a 10-second teaser clip of a song called ‘Happier Than Ever.’
The now-Platinum haired 19-year-old delighted fans with the tune and minimalistic video, after mounting speculation for the album just last week, as she wrote ‘things are coming.’
The seven-time Grammy winner revealed she had written an album in quarantine in February, but her co-collaborator and brother Finneas O’Connell remained mum when asked if fans could expect it soon, telling TMZ ‘I can’t confirm or deny.’

The track seems to be ushering in a new era of her music, alongside her more mainstream hue of blonde, as it was said the drastic hair change — which took six-weeks to do in a healthy way — was a symbol of ‘transformation.’
In her new video the camera zooms in on the back of a retro arm chair, as Billie croons in voiceover form: ‘I’m away from you, I’m happier than ever.’
She then turns around and stares hauntingly into the camera with her piercing blue eyes, before the emotive musical sensation gently leans her head back and shuts them in the clip’s closing shot.
Though much of her music is a bit cryptic the track’s lyrics and song titled, seem to be a nod at her last relationship with Brandon ‘Q’ Adams. They called it quits in 2019 after a year.

And in her documentary The World’s A Little Blurry, she touched on their sometimes explosive relationship and why they eventually broke up after she revealed she ‘wasn’t happy.’
‘I just wasn’t happy. And I didn’t want the same things he wanted and I don’t think that’s fair, for him. ‘I don’t think you should be in a relationship, super excited about certain things that the other person couldn’t care less about.’
Recently Billie has been seen cozying up to voiceover actor Matthew Tyler Vorce — perhaps one reason she is ‘happier than ever.’

Many fans had eyes on a summer release after Finneas told the Herald Sun that he wants the album to coincide with a happy time sans-pandemic as sort of a ‘vaccine record.’
‘Billie’s album, and my album, they won’t be a bummer COVID record. I have a desperate desire not to release them during COVID-19. It’s the vaccine record! I want it to be the album everyone’s out dancing in the streets to.’
And she had previously teased that the album would have between ‘1-16’ tracks in an Instagram Q+A. Her debut album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ was released in March 2019.
