Billie Eilish is back, and she’s happier than ever. The nineteen-year-old songstress lit up the Internet earlier this week when she released a fifteen-second teaser of a new track titled "Happier Than Ever." The video features Eilish sitting in a minimalist beige set, slowly turning around in a chair. As the titular lyric, “I’m happier than ever,” plays, she locks eyes with the camera. The V121 alum revealed in a later tweet that the title belongs not just to a track, but a whole new album, Happier Than Ever, set to be released on July 30.

Of course, Eilish is giving fans more than fifteen seconds of material in the meantime. She announced in the same tweet that a new track (perhaps the full version of the song from the teaser?) will drop this Thursday, April 29th, at 9 am PT. The album is available to presave on Apple Music and Spotify, and to pre-order from Amazon music and the iTunes Store.

The announcement comes just two months after the release of The World’s A Little Blurry. The Apple TV documentary chronicled the singer’s journey from SoundCloud success to winning five Grammys, four of which were in major categories. The film encompassed the highs and lows of her burgeoning career, from Eilish struggling to believe in her work to her childhood crush, Justin Bieber, requesting to remix her music. It was a refreshingly real glimpse at the life of an artist that was topping charts before she had her driver’s license.

Happier Than Ever will be the second studio album for Eilish, whose 2019 debut album, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? met with critical and commercial acclaim. She’s already released two full tracks from the new album—the jazzy lo-fi song “My Future” last July, and the hip-hop-influenced “Therefore I Am” in November 2020.

The singles join fourteen other songs on the Happier Than Ever tracklist, which includes cheeky titles like “I Didn’t Change My Number,” “Not My Responsibility,” and the more ominous “Everybody Dies.” Like her debut, the new album will be released by Darkroom and Interscope Records. Eilish’s brother and longtime collaborator, Finneas O'Connell, also returns as a co-writer and producer on the album.
